Catherine Lake Baptist Church is a theologically reformed church holding to the Christ-exalting truths rediscovered in the sixteenth century Protestant Reformation. We welcome people to no longer live like sheep without a Shepherd, but to come feed on the green pastures of God’s Holy Word to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.

Get To Know

Our Pastor

Brian J. Mann has been pastor of Catherine Lake Baptist Church since January 2009. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Biblical Studies w/Minor in the History of Ideas from Southeastern Seminary, and a Master of Theological Studies from Southwestern Seminary. He was ordained in 2001. Brian is married to Sherry and they have three children.

Our Beliefs

In covenant with one another, we believe the Word of God is the only authority for faith and practice. We affirm the 1689 Baptist Confession as the most “excellent, though not inspired, expression of the teaching of the Holy Scriptures by which all confessions are to be measured. We hold to the humbling truths of God's sovereign grace in the salvation of lost sinners. Salvation is through Christ alone and by faith alone” (Spurgeon). Principally, Philippians 2:1–11 is our governing verse.

Our Covenant

Building upon the Word of God as the only authority for faith and practice, we testify that God’s Sovereignty and Grace has placed us in this body for the purpose of Christian communion, discipleship, and the spread of His Glorious Kingdom. Therefore, as covenant members we promise to:

LOVE the Lord Jesus Christ supremely, and to love one another, and to Endure suffering together with HOPE, and to ensure TRUTHful teaching takes place in our church, making it a healthy place for God’s children, and to Pursue HOLINESS in our hearts, minds, and actions both inside and outside the church, and to remain Alive in our WITNESS in the world by being empowered by our WATCHFULNESS in prayer to God, and IN ALL these THINGS, and in all of life, and in all we attempt to do in this church for God’s Glory, may we Never let go of a GOD-CENTERED GOSPEL, and TRUST the Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.
