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.

The Birth of Jesus Foretold
In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man named Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.”
Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”
