Frequently Asked Questions

Glad you asked.

What Bible do you use?

We use the King James Version of the Bible. We believe it is an accurate translation from the correct Greek text.

Why do people come forward to the altar after the message?

This part of our service is called the “invitation.” You are invited at this time to go to the altar and pray about whatever is on your heart. You can also approach the pastor if you would like counsel, if you have any questions, or if you would like to join the church.

Is there a dress code for attending services?

We do not have a dress code or any specific requirements for attending any of our services. Many of our members do "dress up" for the Sunday services. For example, you might see button-down shirts and ties for the men and skirts or dresses for the ladies. The mid-week service on Wednesday is definitely more casual.

Please wear whatever is comfortable for you when you visit. We have many people who dress more casually.

How do people go to heaven?

The Bible teaches that the way to heaven is not through a church or denomination. It is not even through good works. The way to heaven can only be found through Jesus Christ. Only by turning from sin and accepting Christ can a person go to be with Him in heaven.

Will I be asked to give money?

Nope! We won't ask for your money when you visit. During our regularly scheduled services, we do pass an offering plate for our members to give as the Lord lays on their heart. There is never any obligation to give.

Why do you baptize adults?

People that were baptized in the Bible were always adults. Baptism is a public decision for Jesus Christ. Its meaning comes from the person being baptized deciding to be baptized.

Why do you baptize by immersion?

The word baptism comes from the Greek and means to immerse. In the Bible, all those who were baptized were immersed. Being put under the water and then brought back up out of the water is a picture of Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection.

Are you part of a denomination?

No, Southeast Bible Baptist Church is not part of a denomination. We are an independent Baptist church.We do not report to a church hierarchy of any kind. While we do fellowship with other churches, all decisions related to the church are decided by our congregation and our pastors.

Do you have a nursery?

Yes, we provide a nursery for all church services. It is located immediately to the right when you enter the church. Across from the nursery is our toddler class for 2-3 year olds which we have staffed during the Sunday morning service.

Do you have anything for my older children?

Absolutely! We view children as a tremendous gift from God and they are an integral part of the ministry here. In addition to our Christian school, we have a complete Sunday School for all ages, a junior church program for children 12 and under, kid’s clubs and teen Bible studies on Wednesday nights, and youth group on Friday’s.

What do you have for those new to the church?

We would like to invite you to our “Doorway Class.” It is a special Sunday School class designed to answer your questions and help you get to know our church and our people.

Why do you use traditional music in your services?

Contemporary services are becoming more and more common. Many churches have copied the music culture of the world. Unfortunately, this music and this culture has had a terrible effect on our country and led to rampant problems, especially among young people. Our church rejects this and continues to use beautiful hymns and spiritual songs.

What are the responsibilities of the pastors of this church?

The ministries of our church are very extensive and diverse. While Pastor Krohn is the most visible through his preaching on Sundays, the ministry is active every day of the week. The pastors on staff provide vital leadership to those ministries. Some of these include: Southeast Christian Academy (K-12 School), Reformers Unanimous, youth group for teens, children's camp (1200 campers per year), deaf ministry, Commonground Baptist Institute (seminary post-grad education).
