Our belief is that the Lord is leading Lexington Baptist Church to a new expression of worship where the old distinctions of “traditional,” “contemporary” and even “blended” no longer apply. It’s time for us to come together: Young and old. Suits and blue jeans. Families united instead of divided. Traditional hymns along with praise choruses. Choir, orchestra and praise band joining together in one voice of praise and worship. The old season of divided worship is behind us. A new season of unified worship is ready to begin:
On Sunday, March 2, 2014, our church family will move to a single, unified experience of worship.

The ONE Campaign
In anticipation of coming together into one worship style and beginning a new Sunday schedule, we will be launching the “ONE Campaign.” This campaign consists of a 40 day period of preparation and prayer for our church and our congregation as we move forward into a unified worship experience.
The 40 Days
Our 40 days will kick-off on Wednesday, January 22 with a “Night of Praise and Worship” at 7 pm in the Worship Center. This service will be a great time for all of us to come together in worship and get ready for what is to come when we launch our new style in March. That night, we will also introduce our congregation to the first of our weekly video devotionals.
Each Wednesday leading up to our launch in March, we will release a new video led by a different member of our pastoral staff- these devotions will all be focused on faithful and intentional prayer by our church family as we move forward into the next phase of life for Lexington Baptist Church. You can see these videos right here on our website at lexingtonbaptist.org/ONE.
