Sermons are a great way to feel close to Jesus. Just like other Christian churches, Baptist churches as well conduct their Baptist sermons which are of great importance. Some churches put their emphasis on Eucharist, whereas others greatly rely on liturgy to deliver the message, but they still get to enjoy a free form style.
Having said that before visiting a Baptist sermon church service you should keep in mind a few things. Come with open arms and once the sermon ends walk away feeling rejuvenated.
During free Baptist sermons, the worship will remain very simple and the entire ceremony will be dedicated to the sermon itself. The purpose of the Baptist sermon is to pass on the message of Jesus. If the sermon fails to preach the purpose of Holy Bible then it’s a great loss to the humankind. Almost all the Baptist churches will have their own baptistery. People are encouraged to visit their nearest family churches in Houston to take part in Baptist sermons and worships.
In most of the Baptist service, you will realize that they use the power of music to deliver His message. Traditional music that will be included is traditional hymns. A music pastor or the congregational song leader will be accompanied with an organist or a pianist. While other or rather modern churches will include modern music instruments like keyboards, drums, guitars, modern music. They all together carry on the worship through contemporary Christian songs and chorus. The basic agenda behind the music is to prepare the visitors for the sermon.
Prayer is the main part of any Baptist sermon or worship, just like other churches. A minister will take the lead and will lead the prayer. In most of the Baptist worship and sermons, their service ends with a prayer which will be followed by the “sinner’s prayer”, here you pray to God asking for forgiveness for every wrong deed you did. This happens towards the end.
Having said that, Baptist sermons are usually longer. The preacher will choose a topic on which he will talk about. The minister will prepare some notes before addressing the audience. The sermon will often end with an invitation. This invitation will include a message to accept Jesus as their sole savior. Even during sermons music will play a huge part.
Towards the end of the sermon, growing ministries will make an appeal for decisions, where people are invited to take Lord Jesus as everything and the savior. This will be done by making a statement or through letter and will invite the members to commit to the Lord. Generally, listeners will be asked to make this decision publicly. They will be requested to come forward and share the decision.
