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.

  • Spiritually Alive - July 25, 2021

    A marvelous miracle happens in the life of every person who comes to faith in Jesus. They become spiritually alive! They are born-again. Paul says it this way in 2 Cor 5:17, “Therefore, if

    anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold the new has come.” The transformation is supernatural and something only God can do. 

    It is possible to be a good church-goer, someone who lives the golden rule, gives of their time and resources, and still is not born-again. They can be a good citizen and share with others but not have a relationship with God through Jesus. They are not spiritually alive.

    It is also possible to be spiritually alive and become deceived by false teaching and heresy. Paul, in our passage today, was addressing the church in Colossae in the 1st century. It seems there were false teachers who had infiltrated the church and were trying to lead people astray. Paul tried to show them that they were spiritually alive, having been born-again, but they needed to walk closely with Jesus so they would not stray away from the faith. It is easy to get off track and make a shipwreck of our faith but we’re warned against it.

  • Supportive of my Church - July 18, 2021

    God has given us the church as the body of Christ on this earth. When people see the church in action, they should see a good reflection of Christ in the world. People loving one another, not judging those on the outside, giving freely of their time, talents, and money, and living with integrity in all they do. These are just some of the ways that Christian people reflect Christ.

    But the reality of Christian living is that there is no perfect church. The reason is because there are no perfect Christians. We are all sinners saved by grace. The moment you and I joined the church, we brought our own imperfections, hurts, habits, and hang-ups into the church. Therefore, we must work hard to not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of our mind (Rom. 12:2). 

    Paul was a missionary who wrote to the church in Colossae in the 1st century. He had to address the heresy that was coming into the church through false teachers. People were

    worshipping angels, believing in rules to create righteousness, trusting in their own goodness, and trusting worldly philosophies that were not from Christ. He used his own life as an example of how, in Christ, we are to build up the church we are a part of.
