Frequently Asked Questions
What should I expect?
You should expect to be warmly welcomed by greeters and people who are glad you’ve come. Abilene is a Southern Baptist Church that believes in dynamic, practical, Biblical preaching and exciting worship that touches the hearts of people from all ages and stages of life.
How early should I get there?
Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before the service starts. That will give you time to park, check your kids in and get into the Worship Center before the music starts. We have identical worship services on Sunday mornings at our Main Campus in Martinez and our West Campus in Harlem. Our worship services are approximately 1 hour in length.
How should I dress?
At Abilene you’ll see people of all ages wearing suits and dresses as well as khakis and slacks. While we do believe that an important part of worship is giving our best to God, we also believe the biblical truth that “man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Where do I park?
Guest parking is provided and clearly marked at the entrances. Simply follow the signs and take a spot near the front of the building.
What style of music will I find?
We seek to worship God in Spirit and Truth through multi-generational worship services, utilizing a variety of songs and styles and encouraging active participation by all.
What about my kids?
Your child will experience age-appropriate teaching, music and fun activities designed to introduce them to a life-changing journey to follow Jesus Christ. The safety and security of children is extremely important to us. Through the use of check-ins and state-of-the-art security, your children will be safe while you worship and attend Sunday School.
