Frequently Asked Questions

When are your services?

We meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45am for Sunday school and 11:00 a.m. for worship.

What are your Sunday services like?

The dress and atmosphere tends to be casual. You can wear jeans. You can wear a tie. It’s your decision. The music is a mixture of traditional hymns and contemporary Christian. The messages are always centered on the Bible.

When should I arrive?

Plan to arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of the worship service. This is especially important if you have children. We also have pre-worship music and video that typically play in the worship center before worship.

What do you offer for children?

Each Sunday morning, we offer age-appropriate environments where kids can be kids. Our current curriculum is Rock Solid based on the parable in Matthew 7:24-25, “Everyone then who hears these words of mine and acts on them will be like a wise man who built his house on rock. Then rain fell, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on rock.” We want children ages 3-12 to build a strong faith foundation so that when the storms of life overwhelm them (and they will at some time or another), their house of faith will not fall away. It will stand strong and give them the comfort, strength, and shelter found only in a loving God. At each age level on every Sunday the children will be invited to a faith experience. It is during this time that they can come to a better understanding of God and what God calls them to do and be. They come to know Jesus as the Son of God and take his messages to heart. They seek where the Bible speaks to them today.

What do you offer for infants and toddlers?

Obviously, the first steps on the journey of faith for children from birth to 36 months begin at home. On Sunday mornings we compliment your child’s faith journey with our curriculum Rock-a-Bye, which introduces and nurtures the Christian faith to the youngest ones in our faith community. Rock-a-Bye allows us to help your little ones come to know God through Bible stories, songs, age-appropriate activities, and fingerplays.

Do you have Sunday School or small groups?

We believe that lives are changed in the context of community. Because of that, we offer Sunday school, Bible study, and Growth Groups. Our Growth Groups consists of 12-15 people meeting once a week in relaxing environments all over the city (most meet in homes). The Bible is discussed, friendships are made, and lives are changed.

How do I get involved?

Everyone has gifts and talents. Those abilities have been given for the purpose of serving others. There are volunteer opportunities all over Buckhead Baptist. If you would like to find a service opportunity that fits you, email us here.

How do I become a member?

The first step towards membership is salvation—a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Following this salvation experience comes baptism—adult believers’ baptism by immersion. Once you have committed your life to Jesus, made a public profession of that confession, and attended Buckhead Baptist faithfully for at least two months, you are encouraged to attend our membership class.

What do you believe about baptism and the Lord’s Supper?

We encourage all followers of Jesus to experience baptism. Periodically, we offer baptism opportunities and give an open invitation. We baptize by immersion because that was Jesus’ model of baptism. Baptism is not salvation. It is a sacred symbol of the new life that Jesus brings about within believers. We believe communion, or the Lord’s Supper, is also a sacred symbol. It symbolizes the body of Jesus that was sacrificed for us. We observe this ordinance on the first Sunday of each month during our worship service.

How do people give financially to this church?

Each Sunday, during morning services, we receive an offering. These financial gifts enable this church to fulfill the mission and vision God has given it. The Old Testament references a “tithe,” or “tenth,” as an acceptable gift. The New Testament says little about this but does discuss giving in accordance to what God has given us. We believe that giving is a demonstration of faith in God. We are to give in a way that takes faith.

What is expected of me?

When you visit Buckhead Baptist, you will not be put on the spot. We will not single you out or require you to give us any information. After the service, we will not coming knocking on your door. We ask only that you allow us to be your host. If you have additional questions regarding Buckhead Baptist Church, please feel free to email us
