So we have a new name!
Culloden-Balloch Baptist Church.
Our church meeting decided on this as the favoured option for us to adopt us we prepare to take up residence in our new building, the keys of which we should be getting later this week. So we have a new name and a new building!!
Our aim both through the name change and the building build, is one and the same; to exist for the good of those outside of ourselves all for the glory of Christ. By adding ‘Balloch’ and retaining ‘Culloden’ we hope to show both respect for our past and intent to the people of Balloch.
Now the bible actually tells u to make sure that, well let me allow you to read it for yourself, “A good name is to be chosen… ‘ Prov 22:1. Now of course that is not talking about what we ‘call’ someone/thing. It is referring to your character. So how interested are you in your character? God is after a renovation of your character. He wants it to begin to reflect His Son’s. My hope is that as a church we’ll have a name that honours Christ. A name for being loving, kind, patient, long-suffering, hopeful, powerful and faithful. As we’ve been seeing in our morning service studies in Ephesians, God has exactly the same plan for us!
