Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ

Missions

Ministries

Our motto at QBC is ‘Pleasing God, Making Disciples of Jesus Christ’. This not only includes Rhode Island but to the remotest parts of the earth as commanded in Acts 1:8:

you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”

John Piper said “Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn’t.” QBC is committed to reaching for Christ not just those here in our “Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria” but to the least-reached in the remotest parts of the world.

PSALM 119:63 – I am a companion of all who fear you, of those who keep your precepts.” So, do we have spiritual friendships?

Walk in Christ’s Freedom

JOHN 8:31–32 – So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” I wondered what it would have been like to come to church one Sunday, take our seat in the sanctuary, get settled in for worship,…

Being Confident Witness for Christ

MATTHEW 28:18-20 – And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with…

How’s Our Ministry to Other Believers Going?

HEBREWS 6:10 – For God is not unjust so as to overlook your work and the love that you have shown for his name in serving the saints, as you still do.” Before we move into today’s nugget, two things need to be clarified. First, we are in the ministry. The book of Hebrews is not a pastoral epistle or written to…

The Worst of Spiritual Conditions

REVELATION 3:14-22: “And to the angel of the church in Laodicea write: ‘The words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of God’s creation. “‘I know your works: you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were either cold or hot! So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of my…
