"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.

  • Avoid Divisiveness - June 12, 2022

    We live in a world that is divided. Whether it is political, relational, or spiritual, there is evidence all around us that we are a divided people. Our culture propagates divisiveness. Our enemy, Satan, is the author of division and loves nothing better than to separate people. Unfortunately, this attitude and action often infects the church. Peoples opinions on disputable matters can be grounds for division. Philosophies of this world mixed with spiritual truth can go undetected and bring dissension between people.

    On the contrary, God is a unifier. Psalm 133:1 says, Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” .Gods Word helps us see that He wants us to avoid divisiveness. In Jesus’ High Priestly Prayer in John 17:22-23, He prayed, The glory that you have given me, I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one. I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one, so that the world may know that you sent me and loved them even as you loved me.” Jesus prayed that His followers (you and me) would be united.

    Today, if the church is going to be a beacon of light in the world doing good, it must be a force for unity. Discord will not bring about the oneness that Christ desires.
