A Note from Pastor Steve Parks:

After almost 40 years of holding the privileged office of lead pastor in two separate local churches, I believe it is time to step into a new phase of ministry for me. This year I will be retiring from my role as lead pastor, of Bible Baptist Church, St Charles MO. My exit from the church is scheduled for August 4, 2024 (or sooner if the Lord facilitates the process.) I want to help the men who are involved in the search for a new pastor, but I also want to step away as soon as possible to allow freedom for the next man of God.
Bible Baptist is a good church with the motto ‘A Welcoming Family of Faith’. I have, over my 19 years of ministry here, endeavored to cultivate an accepting and loving ‘family atmosphere’. Since the 2020 pandemic, the church has averaged 100+ in attendance (down slightly from 150+ before Covid).
Our ministry has majored in faithful preaching of the word of God (mostly expository). We have a flexible, relaxed, conservative, blended worship style. Our Sunday Morning services are viewable online on our Facebook page and archived on our YouTube channel (BBC St. Charles livestream).
Our Facilities are debt-free and consist of a Church building that has undergone remodeling during my 19 years of ministry here, a gymnasium, a parsonage, and a recently resurfaced parking lot. The church finances are healthy at this time, and our Mission fund is strong as well. The church currently supports a full-time pastor and Assistant pastor, a part-time secretary, and a custodian.
An overview of Bible Baptists’ ministry can be found on our Web Page at Biblebapt.com (This includes location, current missionary projects, and a doctrinal statement).
I believe that for a man with sufficient energy and vision there is a tremendous potential for growth in our community. There is a need to attract and retain younger families (we have several in our membership, but it is an area that could improve with proper leadership).
The good people of Bible Baptist are praying for and ready to welcome a new Pastor. Feel free to contact me personally for any further information you would desire at 636-947-0367 (church).
