At Colonial we take seriously God’s command to take the gospel to our community and to the ends of the earth (Matthew 28:19-20). Knowing that Christ is the only hope for eternal life, we feel the urgency of reaching those who are trapped in sin and facing an eternity of damnation in hell. We have the good news that Christ has paid the penalty for their sin by giving His own life to redeem theirs. And we share that good news with our community through every opportunity God gives us: bus ministry, in-home and nursing home visits, state fair evangelism, prison ministry, and in-school child evangelism fellowship clubs. Our outreach extends beyond the surrounding community through annual mission trips and the financial support of missionaries worldwide. Join us in sharing the good news of the gospel and experience the joy of introducing someone to Jesus Christ.
For information about any of these outreaches please contact the church office at 317.253.5597.
FOOTSTEPS OF FAITH
This is the “connection point” for newcomers and prospects at Colonial. It is here in these small group Bible studies that relationships are established and growth in Christ is warmly encouraged. Footsteps of Faith is the place where questions about God are answered and discussion is welcomed.
The Exchange seeks "to train and mobilize God’s people for Spirit-filled, relational evangelism and discipleship through seminars and resources." Our church enjoyed our first fruitful seminar with Jeff & Anna Musgrave in June 2012. As God grants boldness, we are now seeking to be faithful to the Great Commission with our neighbors and friends.
Colonial Hills Baptist Church is actively evangelizing and ministering to the incarcerated. In Matthew 25:34-40, our Lord promises a blessing to those who visit the prisoner, for “inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” The Least of These Prison Ministry meets the spiritual needs of those behind bars by proclaiming the good news of salvation to the lost and discipling believers through careful Bible study.
Through Bridges, we seek to connect with the community for the cause of Christ. Organized through the Adult Bible Fellowships, Bridges gives our church family an opportunity to call, write, and even personally visit "new-moves" to welcome them to Indianapolis area. It also affords a chance to build relationships with those who have recently visited our church.
