Frequently Asked Questions
What style of worship services do we have?
We offer two different styles of worship services:
The Traditional Service is comprised mostly of hymns and is led by our Pastor of Traditional Worship assisted by choir, piano, and organ.
The Contemporary Service is comprised mostly of newer songs with a modernized hymn here and there and is led by our Pastor of Contemporary Worship assisted by a band comprised of guitars, drums, bass, keyboard, and vocalists.
What times are the services and where do they take place?
The Traditional Service takes place in our sanctuary every Sunday at 8:45 a.m. The Contemporary Service takes place in our Outreach Center every Sunday at 11:00 a.m.
What's the preaching/teaching like?
The preaching and teaching here at Balboa Baptist are practical, biblical, and relevant to our daily lives. All of our preaching and teaching are faithful to scripture as we hold that the Bible is the standard for all truth. Both services can also be viewed live or recorded on our Facebook page or online at https://balboa.live in you are unable to attend.
What should I wear?
Wear what you want! Whether it’s a 3-piece suit, or casual, we want you to be comfortable to be who you are and focus on connecting with God. The Bible says in 1 Samuel 16:7, God doesn’t look at the outward appearance, but He looks at the heart. So, if He doesn’t consider your attire a major concern, neither do we!
What about my kids during church?
Nursery/childcare is available during both Sunday services for children in kindergarten and below. Kids in 1st grade or older attend worship services with their families and go to their own small group classes separate from their parent’s classes.
What Bible Study opportunities are available?
We are excited to provide a wide range of Bible Study Opportunities at 10:00 am on Sunday morning between services. We also have expanded bible study on Grow Deeper Wednesdays and other specialized opportunities throughout the week. You can explore these by visiting our Bible Study page.
We know you probably have many more questions! Again, we invite you to either join us for a worship service or call our Lead Pastor, Denny Wright to set an appointment for a personal visit for coffee or lunch.
