1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
Carrollton Baptist Church is a body of believers who seek to glorify God by endeavoring to love God with all their "heart, soul, strength and mind, and their neighbors as themselves." One vital and significant way we attempt to do this is through faithfully proclaiming the gospel of Christ, which is "the power of God unto salvation" to all who believe. At CBC, the authority of the Word of God is highly regarded as the source of Truth, and we endeavor to let it guide us as a church body and as individual followers of Christ.
Sermons are typically expositional (teaching Scripture verse by verse). Our theology is reformed, as we believe the Doctrines of Grace. Our denomination is Southern Baptist (we cooperate with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia). Our church polity is congregational, led by a body of elders. We embrace a variety of evangelistic forms, and especially encourage relational evangelism. We also support missions around the world.
We are located near Newport News, Smithfield, Suffolk, and Portsmouth, VA. The congregation of Carrollton Baptist Church invites you to join us for any of our services, study groups, or other activities. If we can be of assistance, please contact us.

Trials and Temptations
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.
