Hope - When Believing Gets Hard Sermon Series

September 12 - November 21, 2021

Hope is indispensable to life!  We need hope to survive.  But how do you keep your "hope quotient" up when life is really difficult?  How do you keep from becoming despairing? The Bible gives us the keys to strengthening our hope when our faith is tested.  Learn how to trust God in the most difficult times of life by relying on the promises in His Word.

Join us for our new sermon series, HOPE, in person or live via Facebook Live at 9am and 11am, September 12 - November 21, 2021.

Welcome to First Baptist Church

The world is longing for hope. We believe that hope is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ, and loving and being loved by His community of followers. Our goal is to infuse the hope of Christ in unexpected ways and help move people into action to live a life transformed.

  • Make Disciples - September 26, 2021

    Hope is such a beautiful word! We all need hope to survive from day to day. We’re living in times when believing can be hard. So many things in our world seem out of control. One thing that is stable is Jesus Christ. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:8). 

    Just before Jesus ascended back to the Father in heaven, He gave some very specific instructions to His immediate disciples and all of us who are His disciples in this day and time. He knew life would be difficult for us but He would be with us. He told His followers to make disciples. Disciples are those who are willing to lay their lives down for the cause of Christ. They hold nothing back! 

    When Christians are “all in” or “sold out” to Christ, they can make a tremendous impact on the world and their hope quotient will rise. In fact, their hope rises in proportion to their commitment. Are you “all in” for Jesus? The Christians that have the greatest hope in this world are those who are “all in.” They are being disciples and they are making disciples. They are completing the Great Commission in this day and time. They are bringing hope to the hopeless.

  • Be a Disciple - September 19, 2021

    No doubt, you’ve heard the phrase “all in.” It means that the person saying it is totally committed to the activity they are talking about. It may be something like a hobby, or a food they like, or a sports team they’re a fan of, or a possession they own. When you are “all in”, you are totally committed. Are you “all in” for Jesus? The Christians that have the greatest hope in this world are those who are “all in.” They’ve left nothing on the table. They aren’t wavering between two philosophies. They aren’t high centered between two competing ideologies. They are completely surrendered to Jesus with their whole life.

    When Jesus was walking on the face of this earth, He was gaining popularity fast. People loved the miracles He was doing, the healings he performed, the casting out of demons, and the changed lives they witnessed after receiving salvation from Him. Great crowds accompanied Him wherever He went. But Jesus knew that many were NOT “all in.” That is when He turned to them and spelled out the cost of discipleship. He showed those who were fans but NOT really followers what it means to be “all in” for the Kingdom of God.
