Everyone is welcomed at Barstow COGIC. We hope that what you’ll find is a relational atmosphere where you can be yourself, engage in worship and connect with God. The heartbeat of the gospel is that Christ meets us right where we are, but loves us too much to leave us there. Whether you grew up in church, haven’t been to church in a while, or never have been in church in your life—no matter where you are in life—we believe that God has a plan for you and that He has a place and purpose for you here at Barstow COGIC.
When you worship with us, we will not ask you to stand, come down to the front or say anything; we will ask you to wave your hand during service so that we may acknowledge you. We also will ask you to complete a Visitor's Card at your option, so that we may connect with you during the week. Then, at the end of the Worship Service, we will be waiting to greet you, pray for you and answer any questions you may have.
We have a praise band and praise team who lead us in worship each Sunday.
We offer Biblical teaching that deals with real everyday life. The message will be based on the Bible, and Pastor Norman will often include interesting quotes from contemporary people, the latest news stories, or movies. Our services last about 1 hour and 20 minutes… After Pastor Norman completes his message, he invites people to become followers of Jesus Christ. If you have time, Pastor Autry would love to meet you after service.
Our dress is casual and comfortable. Please don’t buy anything special to worship with us. Whether you prefer formal, business, or casual attire, chances are there will be others dressed much like you, no matter when you visit. We want you to feel welcome and accepted for who you are!
At Barstow COGIC, children are a top priority. Our mission is to provide a safe, exciting environment for children to grow, make friends and learn consistent, Biblical values—the same values parents will hear in our worship services and see lived out by our leadership. Your children will have a great time making friends and learning about Jesus Christ.
