1 John 4:7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.
Carrollton Baptist Church is a body of believers who seek to glorify God by endeavoring to love God with all their "heart, soul, strength and mind, and their neighbors as themselves." One vital and significant way we attempt to do this is through faithfully proclaiming the gospel of Christ, which is "the power of God unto salvation" to all who believe. At CBC, the authority of the Word of God is highly regarded as the source of Truth, and we endeavor to let it guide us as a church body and as individual followers of Christ.
Sermons are typically expositional (teaching Scripture verse by verse). Our theology is reformed, as we believe the Doctrines of Grace. Our denomination is Southern Baptist (we cooperate with the Southern Baptist Conservatives of Virginia). Our church polity is congregational, led by a body of elders. We embrace a variety of evangelistic forms, and especially encourage relational evangelism. We also support missions around the world.
We are located near Newport News, Smithfield, Suffolk, and Portsmouth, VA. The congregation of Carrollton Baptist Church invites you to join us for any of our services, study groups, or other activities. If we can be of assistance, please contact us.

So also Abraham “believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.”
Understand, then, that those who have faith are children of Abraham. Scripture foresaw that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, and announced the gospel in advance to Abraham: “All nations will be blessed through you.” So those who rely on faith are blessed along with Abraham, the man of faith.
For all who rely on the works of the law are under a curse, as it is written: “Cursed is everyone who does not continue to do everything written in the Book of the Law.” Clearly no one who relies on the law is justified before God, because “the righteous will live by faith.” The law is not based on faith; on the contrary, it says, “The person who does these things will live by them.” Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a pole.” He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
