Ministries

The primary work of the Ambassador Baptist Church is worship, prayer, soul-winning and the preaching and teaching of the Bible. In an effort to do these things effectively certain ministries have been organized and others are being developed.

  • Ambassador College of Ministry
    This is a 4 year college level program that is a combination of classroom and extension learning. We operate our program from the Tuesday following Labor Day to the Tuesday before Memorial Day. Three courses are taught each 12 week trimester. Each course of study includes weekly lectures on Tuesday evenings and outside projects plus reading assignments. The classes are tuition free. A registration fee and the cost of the textbooks are all one needs to pay.


  • Bible-View Counseling
    Through the pastoral leadership of Pastor Fry and other qualified laymen, Christian counseling is provided to those who request it. It is absolutely free of charge. This is not psychology or psychiatry, but simply a listening ear and counsel from the teachings of the Bible. It is our conviction that the Bible has the answer to life's most difficult questions.


  • Deaf Ministry
    We presently provide deaf interpretation for our worship services. We also have a deaf Sunday School class. It is our desire to reach into the deaf community with the gospel of Christ, teaching the Word of God, providing opportunity for Christian fellowship and meeting the unique needs of those who are deaf.


  • ESL Classes
    Saturday mornings (as requested/needed) from 9:30 to 10:45 AM, free English classes are taught to those who desire to speak English as their second language. We have had several nationalities represented in our classes. The primary textbook is the Bible.


  • Fair Ministry
    Each year Ambassador Baptist Church partners with Amazing Grace Missions with an evangelistic outreach at the Frederick County Fair. Many people come into the tent for a presentation of the gospel and receive Jesus Christ as their Savior. The fair is the third week of September each year.


  • Falam Baptist Church
    Meeting each Sunday afternoon at 1:30 PM, a worship service is conducted in the Chin Burmese language. Many of these dear folks are persecuted refugees from the land of Burma.


  • Family Visitation and Soul Winning
    Every Saturday morning at 10:00 - 12:00 the families of our church are encouraged to meet together and then go visit those who have been absent from services, those who are sick and those who are simply church prospects. This is an opportunity for couples and entire families to serve the Lord together.


  • Ladies Banquets
    We have banquets for the ladies of our church in the Spring and in the Fall. Included are activities and fellowship as well as a delicious meal.


  • Music Ministry
    We place a strong emphasis on the congregational singing of traditional hymns and gospel songs. We have some very talented people who incorporate various styles and tastes in our special music, but avoid all gospel rock and contemporary Christian music.


  • Nursing Home Ministry
    There are presently two weekly visitation groups that visit, encourage, and share the gospel at the Northampton Manor. A weekly Bible study is held as well as a monthly worship service. Two Sunday afternoon services are held each month at the Tasker's Chance retirement community also.


  • Soul Winning Club
    This program is designed to recruit and train believers in the work of personal soul-winning. The teams meet on Thursday at 7:00 P.M. for instructions and then go to various homes in the community.


  • Rescue Mission Service
    A team from our congregation regularly provide the worship service for the Baltimore Rescue Mission on the third Monday evening. This is a great old-fashion Gospel rescue mission. We are pleased to be a part of this great work.


  • Sunday School
    We now offer at 9:30 AM each Sunday morning a family class, Deaf Ministry class and age-graded children's classes. The family class is designed so that the entire family; mom, dad, and the children can sit and study the Bible together. A traditional children's Sunday School class is offered to those who attend without their parents or whose parents prefer for their children to attend a class structured in this fashion. Additional classes for adults and children will be organized as God gives us more qualified teachers.


  • Super Church
    Super Church is the name given to the second Sunday School Program of Ambassador Baptist Church; 10:40 to Noon each Sunday morning. This time is designed primarily for the children we transport from around the city who attend without their parents.


  • Vacation Bible School
    This is an exciting time of children's songs, games, Scripture memory, Bible lessons, puppet skits and contests. Our Vacation Bible School is held at the church however, we hope to add more Vacation Bible School programs around the city of Frederick in various locations in the future.


  • Van/Bus Ministry
    Transportation is provided for adults and children in the Frederick area who would be otherwise not attending church. These are sometimes handicapped or poor. We believe there is a Scriptural mandate to love and care for these special people. They provide an opportunity to display "pure religion and undefiled" (James 1:27).
