"Daniel - Finding Security in God's Sovereignty" Sermon Series

Daniel was a man who walked faithfully with God when his whole world was turned upside down, but he found his security in the powerful workings of God.  He trusted God against all odds, humanly speaking.  The great stories of God’s mighty power (Ch. 1-6) as well as the teachings on prophecy and the end times (Ch. 7-12) will be included in this exciting study. 

With all that is happening in the world, we need to be reminded that the events of this present time are leading up to the 2nd coming of Christ.  Let’s journey together and be encouraged as we find the true source of our security in these uncertain times.

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.

  • God our Revealer of Secrets - September 20, 2020

    One of the amazing attributes of God is His omniscience. God knows everything and nothing is hidden from Him. He knows everything about the future but He is not secretive. He wants to reveal Himself to us and show us His ways. Daniel 2:22 says, “He reveals deep and hidden things; He knows what is in the darkness, and the light dwells with Him.” Again in Job 12:22, it is written, “He reveals mysteries from the darkness and brings the deep darkness into light.” Because of this, we can find security in His sovereignty.

    God shows us His thoughts and plans primarily in His Word. He reveals Himself as we read and study the Bible. But God also reveals Himself in visions (Gen. 15), angels (Gen. 16), symbolic actions (Jere. 18:1-10), a gentle whisper (1 Kings 19:12), miraculous signs (Ex. 8:20-25) and even dreams.

    In Daniel 2, God reveals the secret of a dream to Daniel in order that he can tell King Nebuchadnezzar the meaning and interpretation of the dream. This action saves his life and the lives of all the wise men of Babylon. It also elevates Daniel in the eyes of the king. God’s plan for King Nebuchadnezzar’s kingdom is revealed and he will ultimately be defeated.

  • God our Keeper - September 13, 2020

    Where is your security? With the pandemic and the natural disasters that are happening, it is difficult to find a sense of security today. Everything seems to be so chaotic. Today, I want us to see that God is truly our keeper.

    In the story we're going to read, we're introduced to a young man who understood that God ultimately is our keeper. Taken into captivity in Babylon from the kingdom of Judah after the fall of Jerusalem in approximately 605 B.C. Daniel was chosen by King Nebuchadnezzar to be one of the choice servants who would serve in the palace. He was bright, healthy teenager whom, among with e of his friends, were chose by the king to be "re-educated" in the ways of the Babylonians. These young men were to be taught the literature and language of the Babylonians.

    But Daniel determined that the ways of the Babylonians were contrary to God's ways. He was convicted that he should not do what this pagan culture taught and influence other also.

Together Again - Our Plan

We've prepared a short video outlining our plan for regathering.  Click on the image to the left to watch this special message.

Although we never closed as a ministry and have been actively meeting needs in our county, we have missed our weekly in-person gatherings and are now together again.

We continue to implement safety precautions as requested by our local health officials for our large weekend gatherings and want to regather as safely as we can.

Although this time has been difficult, we have been amazed by what God has done in and through the community of First Baptist Church in this season and can’t wait to see what He has in store for us in this next season!
