MEET THE PASTOR

Pastor Barnwell accepted his call to preach in 2006. Immediately, after accepting his call to preach the gospel in 2006, he enrolled in Luther Rice Seminary for preparation into the ministry. Pastor Barnwell graduated from Luther Rice Seminary with a Master of Divinity in May 2010. He also has two years of Ph. D studies at Baptist Bible Seminary in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania.

 

 

Pastor Barnwell has a love for the local church. He is a proponent that every believer should serve the Lord in some capacity within the local church or outside the local church. He has served in many ministries in the church: music ministry, youth ministry, deacon ministry, evangelism ministry and jail ministry. In 2009, God laid upon Pastor Barnwell’s heart to plant a church to reach people who were far from God and lead them to a personal knowledge and

relationship with Jesus Christ. Pastor Barnwell was the Senior Pastor and Founder of Grace Christian Church. On August 9, 2009 the Grace Christian Church held their first service and faithfully loved and served the Lord until God was doing a new thing. On August 9, 2020, Quincy was called to Philadelphia Baptist Church and was installed as the Senior Pastor. The

two churches made a decision to merge together. Praise be to God!

 

 

Pastor Barnwell and his wife, Erika have been married since 2005. They have two boys: Quincy II and Caleb. Away from the pulpit, Pastor Barnwell enjoys exercising, swimming, playing basketball, playing the piano, reading, and spending time with his family.

What we Believe

Our core beliefs.

We believe in the Trinity: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit, in the full deity and humanity of Christ, the spiritual lostness of the human race, the substitutionary atonement and bodily resurrection of Christ. We believe that Salvation is  by faith alone, in Christ alone. We believe in the physical return of Christ.

Mission & Vision

Philadelphia Baptist Church exists to help people become fully committed followers of Christ.

We envision our church sharing the good news of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection with thousands of unbelieving friends.

Core values

BIBLE

God reveals Himself through His words.

II Timothy 3:16 

All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness.

COMMUNITY

 We value community because God is love.

Acts 5:42 says, "And every day, in the temple and from house to house, they did not stop teaching and preaching the good news of Jesus as the Christ."

OBEDIENCE

We value Obedience because Jesus was obedient until the point of death.

Philippians 2:8

Being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.

EVANGELISM & MISSIONS

God desires everyone to be saved.

Luke 19:10

For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.

SERVICE

God has served us through Christ.

Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.

DISCIPLE MAKING

Jesus left us with a game plan.

Matthew 28:19 

Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, 

FAMILY

Strong families produce strong churches. In Ephesians 5:22-6:4 the Bible teaches about family relationships. 

PRAYER

Prayer is the way we communicate with God. 

Matthew 7:7

Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
