Thanks for stopping by our website. Loma Rica Baptist Church, or LRBC, is located in the foothills of Yuba County, in California. our Pastor, Dave Peterson, has been with us since October of 2004.
Pastor Dave preaches expository messages, verse by verse, through books of the Bible. So far, he has preached through Habakkuk, Malachi, Matthew, Mark, Acts, Romans, Philemon, Hebrews, 1 Peter and part of the Psalms. While we are a part of the Southern Baptist Convention of churches, as Pastor Dave is fond of saying, “This isn’t your grandfather’s Southern Baptist Church.” We’d love to have you stop by for a visit. If you have any questions about us or what we believe, please give Pastor Dave a call.
Our primary mission is worship. We were created to worship God. That is the chief end of worship. Everything we do is because we are called to worship the Lord. We believe that worship is not limited to a portion of a church service, such as the singing, and in fact, it is not limited to the gathering of the saints. We feel that worship is the be a lifestyle that the saints of God are called to live out as a lifestyle.
We believe that the great commission was given to the followers of Christ so that people might fulfill the reason that they were created - to worship God. Evangelism exists because of the lack of worship and because people worship someone or something other than God, the one and only true God of the Scriptures. We believe that evangelism is not just for the professionals or the clergy, but that the great commission was given to all who have received Christ as Lord and Savior.
The reason and purpose of discipleship is not simply to grow in knowledge, but rather to grow in worship. Discipleship exists to teach us to worship better. The more we grow in Christ, learn of Him, love Him, and experience Him, the deeper our worship will be.
