"Joyful Journey" July 10 - September 18, 2022

Joy is not the same as happiness.  Happiness depends on circumstances, but joy depends on Christ living in and ruling our hearts.  Joy allows a Christian to travel on a journey through life living a supernatural life because of the power of the Holy Spirit working in them.  Even though life is hard, they can live in victory.  Philippians teaches us how.

Join us July 10 through September 18, 2022 at 9am and 11am, for "Joyful Journey" in person or join us on Facebook Live for all services.

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.

  • Living Out Life with God Living in Us - August 14, 2022

    The wonderful truth about the Christian life is that every believer has the Holy Spirit in them, and they have the power to live out life with God living in them. We have the opportunity to wake up each morning and live our lives as believers with the power of Christ living in us. This isn’t some false imagination that we hang onto but it is a reality. We have the ability to show joy in our lives. We have the ability to reflect Christ. But do we do that? It is so easy to fall into a negative attitude, become argumentative, and find ourselves complaining. That is not the way things ought to be. 

    Paul was writing to the church in Philippi . In the church at Phi-lippi, the people were subject to dissensions and rivalries. Even though this church didn’t have some of the major problems that oth-er churches had that Paul wrote to, they knew how to squabble amongst one another and it was apparent that not everything was well within the church. Paul wrote to encourage them to live out life with God living in them.

    Today, you may be going through some really deep struggles. You may be going through some hurtful circumstances that are threatening to unravel your world. Jesus wants to meet you here and bring you real joy.
