Pastor Ben & Petrea Lamb
Hi. I am the founding pastor of The Visible Church in Green Bay, Wisconsin. We call the church “Visible” because we believe the only kind of faith that matters is one that is illustrated or one that makes a positive difference. Does your faith make a difference in your life or in the life of someone else? Galatians 5:6 states it in this way, "...the only thing that matters is faith expressing itself through love." Faith must have an expression of some kind and I believe when that expression is based upon a deep love for God and others it makes a BIG difference. I invite you to come and experience the love of God for yourself. Come and learn how you can have a faith that expresses itself through love.
HERE'S WHAT YOU'LL EXPERIENCE AT
THE VISIBLE CHURCH WHEN YOU COME TO VISIT
The Visible Church is a place where God is given praise & worship that may include clapping, singing, jumping, lifting hands, bowing in reverence and much more. Services are very charismatic in tone and exciting because we have been forgiven much... so we LOVE GOD A LOT!
The Visible Church is dedicated to the authority of the Bible and because of this messages are often delivered with emotion and a strong commitment to the truth. It was the Apostle Paul who instructed his young disciple named Timothy with these words-
"Be ready to spread the word whether or not the time is right. Point out errors, warn people, and encourage them. Be very patient when you teach." 2 Timothy 4:2
The Visible Church is driven by relationship and provides a relaxed atmosphere for people to get to know each other while learning about Jesus. There are many opportunities for you to connect with others over doughnuts & coffee or for you to sit and talk with friends. Regardless of your social status or history THE VISIBLE CHURCH IS THE PLACE TO FIND RELATIONSHIPS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
In The Visible Church Kids Class we are learning new and fun ways to let our Jesus light SHINE! Whether it's playing games, learning exciting ways to apply what we learn from the Bible or experiencing more of God in praise and worship, we love becoming VISIBLE for Jesus! The Visible Church offers nursery facilities to kids under 7yrs old and then something special for kids up to 12 yrs old during the first service only at 9:00 am. After a time of worship with mom & dad in the main sanctuary, kids ages 7-12 are dismissed to go to their own class.
The Visible Church facilitates smalls groups that meet in homes around the Green Bay metro area. These groups are designed to foster greater relationships while deepening your Biblical understanding. These groups meet weekly for about 12 weeks at a time. When you are here, ask about small groups at our information HUB.
