Welcome to YTBC!

cross and chair (Small)At YTBC, we gather each week with great anticipation to see how God is going to work in people’s lives.  It would bless us tremendously to have you be our guest at one of our services.  

Before you even set foot on our campus, we want some of your questions and concerns to be addressed.  Below are a few of the FAQs.  Maybe this will help you as well!
 
Take your time and check out our website.  If you have further questions, feel free to contact us.  We sincerely hope that you will like what you see and that you will be our guest this Sunday!!!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I go?
 If you have small children, you will find the 14th Street entrance has a covered entry (in case of rain) and is closest to the nursery and the YT Kids ministry area.  If you do not have children who will be attending with you, any entrance will be fine.  There are parking spaces designated as “Visitor Parking” just for you!!  Feel free to take one of these spaces close to an entrance!!!  You will also find a few spaces designated as handicap accessible.  Anyone who needs handicap accessibility will need to enter through the main worship center’s front entrance.  Once you have found a parking space, we have greeters at each door that will assist you in finding your way around inside.  
 

What do I wear?
There will be people dressed in a variety of ways…blue jeans and T-shirts, business casual, or suit and tie.  You won’t be looked down on because of how you are dressed!  The Bible says “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” (1 Samuel 16:7)  That’s the approach we take as well! 
 
 

What do you believe?
We accept, practice, and teach the core truths and doctrines represented within the Baptist Faith and Message (read here).  We are a Bible believing church who stands on the inerrancy and infallibility of the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16).  We believe that salvation is available for every man, but unfortunately will not be accepted by every man (John 3:16).  Salvation, is obtained only through the atoning work of Christ on the cross and is received by those who will repent of sin and believe by faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and their Savior (Romans 10-9-10, 13).  We believe baptism (by immersion) is a response of obedience to the Lord once salvation has taken place, and is a representation of the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ.  In this we identify with Him as our old life has “died” and has been “buried”.  We are then “raised” to walk in a new life with Christ as Lord of our life (Romans 6:4).

 

What about your Children’s Ministry?
At YTBC, we make sure that our Children’s Ministry is all that it can be!  First of all, our YTKidz Ministries are focused on child security.  All teachers and leaders have secured background checks and our nursery area has a check in/out system in place.  Your child’s safety is a priority for us! 

In Life Groups, we have classes for each age group and the lessons are age appropriate for your child’s learning stage.  Also, during the morning worship services, children ages 4 years – 6th grade, join us for the first half of the service and then are dismissed to ELEVATE (what we call our Children’s Church), which is led each week by loving and caring adults. Wednesday nights are lots of fun as we have exciting children’s programs for each age group!  Check out the children’s ministry web page for more info by clicking here… YT Kids
 

What about your Youth Ministry?
The Youth Ministry of YTBC is called YT Students!  We have great Life Groups for students in 7th-12th grade.  They meet each week upstairs (someone will show you the way). Also, on Wednesday nights students gather in the same location for student worship.  This is an awesome time with free food, videos, live music, and a relevant message from the Bible about issues teens face. 
 

What about Adult Ministries?
Are you an empty nester?  An adult or senior adult (we call them Abundant Lifers)?  We have a class for you as well!  Young Adults, Median Adults, and Senior Adults, as well as, men’s and women’s classes for various ages, it is all here at York Terrace. 
 
 
Will I be accepted?
Everyone struggles with sin!  Nobody who attends any church on Sunday morning is perfect!!!  Only Jesus Christ was perfect and we seek to live our lives like Him!    YTBC is one of the most loving church’s in the shoals area!  We will love you like Jesus does!  Jesus loves you unconditionally and so will we!!!
