Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine…be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!
What is the purpose of the campaign?
Our vision is that “St Matthews Baptist Church will be a vibrant faith community, demonstrating the love of Christ, becoming vital to the life and hope of our city.” The purpose of the REIMAGINE campaign is to provide the resources necessary to further the ministry and mission of St. Matthews Baptist Church. God has blessed us with a wonderful campus, and we want to be good stewards. Our Master Plan Committee shared with us significant maintenance needs along with a plan for revitalizing our campus.
How will this building project help us reach our community for Christ?
We want to be the presence of Christ in our neighborhood, city, and region, impacting our community in such a powerful way that, if we were to go away, people would grieve our absence and would long for another organization or church to rise up and fill the void that would be left. As we enhance our ministries, our updated and improved facilities will provide a safe and welcoming place for members and guests. We want to make a great first impression when people walk into our public areas, restrooms, classrooms, and sanctuary. As the general population ages, we have plans to make our buildings more accessible. At the same time, we have ideas for how to be more “user friendly” for young families and are providing added security with the new children's wing. All of our ministries will benefit and have room to grow!
How will we pay for this?
We believe wholeheartedly that God has given us a vision for how to demonstrate the love of Christ to each other, and to the world around us. We have faith the St. Matthews Baptist Church family will rise to the challenge He has set for us. With God’s help and our sacrificial giving, we will reach our goals and revitalize our facilities that will help us lead the way for future generations.
How long is the commitment to this campaign?
The REIMAGINE campaign will run over the next three years.
