The Brookland Baptist Church, located in the West Columbia and Northeast Columbia communities, is an anointed Christian “family” serving the spiritual and social needs of God’s people. Our purpose is to function as servants of our Lord Jesus Christ. By serving in and through the church, we partner with the Pastor in enabling the church to “Proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Evangelism, Education and Economic Empowerment.”
We, the Deacons of Brookland Baptist Church, feel led of the Lord to demonstrate our service as His disciples by utilizing our individual gifts and abilities to meet specific needs within the congregation. We know that Jesus came to serve and as deacons, we must be willing to serve: “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28)
The justification for the "Team Concept" is based on the biblical model for the church as expressed in 1 Corinthians 12 and Romans 12 -- where it is taught that the church operates like the human body. The body has many members and they work as a unit to follow the directions of the brain (Jesus Christ). Every member is connected to the others in such a way that what it does contributes to the overall health of the body.
We are also reminded that "Teams" belong to a mission-driven environment which empowers members and others to complete the mission of the church. Therefore, our deacons ministry is divided into the following teams:
