The Gathering: Thursday 11:00 a.m.

RSM Students: Wednesday 6:45 p.m.

Kids Zone: 7:00-8:00 p.m.

We come together in a time of worship to praise God and draw us together in spiritual growth.

The music portion of our service features scripturally based songs using a blend of hymns and praise music covering a range of musical styles.  Our time of worship encourages congregational participation led by our Choir, Praise Team and Musicians.

Active participation is essential in the worship experience.  However, we realize that not everyone feels comfortable worshiping in the same manner.  So it makes no difference if you sit, stand, sing along, or just mediate on the words displayed on the screen. This worship time is designed for us to personally and corporately praise God, and to prepare our hearts and minds to be open to the message that the Holy Spirit has prepared for us through the preaching of our pastor.

So, if God has gifted you with a talent, then we encourage you to put it to use for His glory. If you play an instrument, sing, have an interest in sound or technical support, drama, or any other creative expression that can be used in worship, let us know so that we get you plugged into this ministry!

local missions

In the thirteenth chapter of the Gospel of John, it is recorded how Jesus washed the feet of His disciples. When it was Peter’s turn to receive the washing, it made him uncomfortable. He attempted to stop Jesus saying, “Thou shalt never wash my feet.” (v.8) But Jesus responded to him saying, “If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.”

After the Lord was finished, He asked them if they understood what He had done. He explained it saying, “Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him.” (John 13:13-16)

Through this passage we see Jesus teaching an important principle to all of His disciples: the value of service, even if it meant getting out of their comfort zone. As members of the Church, the Body of Christ, we are not above anyone else. Though we are “joint-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17) we are not better than our Lord who has given us this example of humble servitude towards others. It is through this principle that we are compelled and desirous to serve our surrounding area of Dayton, OH.

Listed below are just some of the ways that we have been able to engage with our community and serve with the love of Christ. And we continue to seek new opportunities to make Him known through our love for one another.

Missions Support and Offerings

Before Jesus ascended back to His Father, and after His resurrection, He left a command to His disciples, and all believers alive today: fulfill the Great Commission. Matthew 28:19-20 says, "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen."

One way that we obey this command is through our missions support. At Crestview Baptist Church, we do this through our prayers, our giving, and the use of our time, talents, and treasures aimed to win the lost for Christ. As a Southern baptist Church, we participate in the North American Missions Board, and specific missions offerings like the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, and the Ray Roberts Offering which supports Ohio missions. 

When we give to the annual Annie Armstrong Easter Offering, for North American missions, we honor the life and work of Annie Walker Armstrong.  Annie was a tireless servant of God and an advocate of mission efforts throughout the world, Annie challenged churches to give, pray, and do more for reaching people for Christ.  The Annie Armstrong offering is a North American missions offering and 100% of this offering remains in the U.S. and Canada

The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering, is an international missions offering which supports Southern Baptist missionaries as they share the Gospel of Jesus Christ overseas. The offering represents 59 percent of IMB’s total income, and every penny you give to the offering goes directly to support missionaries. As Southern Baptists provide more resources, greater numbers of missionaries can be sent.

The Gospel of Jesus is impacting lives every day through Church Plants and other ministries in Ohio!  We can join in God's activity throughout the state by praying for and giving of our resources to help the more than 100 missionaries currently working in our Convention. The Ray Roberts offering is an Ohio missions offering and 100% of this offering remains in the great state of Ohio.
