About Red Bank Baptist Church

The Point Church at Signal exists to Point People to Jesus one conversation at a time. As a Southern Baptist Church, we hold to the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. The Point Church at Signal is the 3rd campus of Red Bank Baptist Church. Though we have different places to meet, we are one church with multiple campuses, with the same values and beliefs taught at all three of our campuses. We believe everyone deserves a chance to hear the redemptive good news of Jesus Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection. We know this will only happen if God’s people are actively going out into the world and sharing the Gospel with people they meet.


Led by Sam Greer, Ph.D., The Point Church is built upon the fact that followers of Christ are called to point people to Jesus. Pastor Sam teaches this belief by challenging the congregation to engage the world in Gospel Conversations.
