Our Noble Services

Morning Bible Study

Sunday morning Bible study is a meaningful time for believers to gather and delve into God's Word. It typically begins with a warm welcome and an opening prayer to invite the Holy Spirit’s presence. 
Deacon, Robert Turner

"Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus."

Sunday Service 10am

The mission of Canaan Baptist Church of Christ is to win souls for Christ and to bring individuals into a saving and redemptive relationship as disciples of Jesus Christ. We are a spiritual body whose only foundation is the Word of God.

We believe in discovering new life following God’s path. Our goal is to help people discover themselves in God’s way.

We also believe in helping people to develop as who God made them to be and find the true essence of life.  

Sermon 1: "Faith Over Fear"

Key Scripture: Matthew 14:22-33 Summary: This sermon focused on the story of Jesus walking on water and Peter stepping out of the boat to meet Him. The message emphasized the importance of keeping our eyes on Jesus, especially during life's storms. Faith allows us to step out in courage, while fear can cause us to sink. The takeaway was that trusting in God's presence and power can help us overcome our fears and experience His miraculous work in our lives.
