Our Vision & Purpose
Radisson Road Baptist Church
Our vision is to help people discover a personal relationship with Jesus, grow deeper in that relationship, and spread the gospel through church partnerships and church planting locally and around the world.
Our Purpose: Connect With Christ. Make Life Matter.
Connect with Christ
At RBBC, our faith journey starts with a personal relationship with Jesus, which then grows through worship and receiving God's Word. Our community fosters this growth through fellowship with other believers.
Make Life Matter
As we grow and connect with Christ and one another, we discover our gifts and use them to serve by His grace. At RBBC, we are committed to helping each member of our church family use their gifts to serve others through outreach, missions, and care.
Pastor Ted Clarke
Jude 24 & 25 "Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen."
Pastor Ted R. Clarke lll was born and raised in Dayton, Minnesota. After graduating high school from Woodcrest Baptist Academy, he went on to attend college at Maranatha Baptist University from 1993-1998. It was here where he began serving the Lord at Gospel Light Baptist Church and the Milwaukee Rescue Mission in 1995. It was at MBU where he met his beautiful wife Ginger and they were married following Graduation, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts.
The Lord called Pastor Clarke and Ginger to South Side Baptist Church and Christian school in Chicago where he served as Youth Pastor and Assistant Pastor from 1998 to 2004. In 2004, he and his family, which includes Cade, Kortney, McKenzie & Carly came back to Minnesota in order to continue his education and assist Pastor John Henderson at Bunker Lake Blvd. Baptist Church in Ham Lake, MN. He earned his Master of Arts and Master of Divinity during this time.
After completing these studies, God called him to serve as Senior Pastor at the First Baptist Church of International Falls from January 2011 to 2018. Pastor Clarke and his family felt God’s calling to Radisson Road Baptist Church at the beginning of 2018 and he has been serving as Senior Pastor here since April of 2018. The whole family enjoys all aspects of Minnesota living including the snow!
Pastor Clarke and his family are truly a blessing to our church family at Radisson Road. He has a heart for people and a passion for the Word of God. He would love to see you at one of our services, shake your hand and share one of his infectious smiles!
We believe in the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments and that they compose the entire Word of God. The Scriptures are inerrant, infallible, and God-breathed; and therefore, are the final authority for faith and life. The sixty-six books of the Old and New Testaments are the complete and divine revelation of God to man. The Scriptures shall be interpreted according to their normal grammatical-historical meaning. The King James Version of the Bible shall be the official and only English-language translation used by Radisson Road Baptist Church. (II Timothy 3:16-17; II Peter 1:20-21
We believe in one Triune God, eternally existing in three persons—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—each coeternal in being, co-identical in nature, coequal in power and glory, and having the same attributes and perfections. (Deuteronomy 6:4; Matthew 28:19; II Corinthians 13:14; John 14:10, 26)
We believe that salvation is the gift of God brought to man by grace and received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Whose precious blood was shed on Calvary for the forgiveness of our sins (John 1:12; Ephesians 1:7; 2:8-10; I Peter 1:18-19) and that to be saved, sinners must be born again; that the new birth is a new creation in Christ Jesus; that it is instantaneous and not a process.
The Second Coming
We believe in that "blessed hope," the personal, imminent return of Christ Who will rapture His Church before the seven-year tribulation period. At the end of the Tribulation, Christ will personally and visibly return with His saints to establish His earthly Messianic Kingdom which was promised to the nation of Israel. (Psalm 89:3-4; Daniel 2:31-45; Zechariah 14:4-11; I Thessalonians 1:10; 4:13-18; Titus 2:13; Revelation 3:10; 19:11-16; 20:1-6)
