Looking Ahead….


Saturday, August 27th @ 6:30pm
Meal will begin at 5:30pm
This is a completely “FREE” event and hosted by Business Men In Christ in conjunction with First Baptist Church.


From the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow? Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace (teacher), their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ. When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace’s reasoned response lands her in big trouble—almost before she even finishes giving her answer.

With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case that could cost her the career she loves and expel God from the classroom—and the public square—once and for all!


Words you can trust!

 Matthew 11:28-30
(28) Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
(29) Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
(30) For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”

Looking back… Sunday August 14th, 10:45 AM
Our guests were: Dr David King & Steven Loots (South African Pastor, CEO of Harvesters).
Harvesters David King
Bro. Loots informed the church concerning the Firewall Project, and establishing a band of churches that stretches from west to east across Africa’s 10/40 Window as a measure to counteract the work of ISIS and radical Islam. Bro. King stated, “We do not start churches to stop ISIS. We start them because Jesus told us to. But we believe that the only true way to stop ISIS is with the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ. Impossible as it may seem, that is our calling, our mission, and our ministry.” It was a wonderful time of worship and very enlightening.

The Gathering

Weds. Sept. 21st at 7:00 PM –
If you’re reading this, you’re invited

The Gathering has one purpose: to unite the Body of Christ in America – all believers, regardless of race, age, or denomination – in prayer for forgiveness, wisdom, and provision for our nation.

The Gathering is free of political agendas, merchandise, and ministry tents. No offering will be received. No books will be sold. No personalities will be promoted.
National revival must begin in the heart and in the home before it can spread throughout communities and nations. This is why The Gathering will focus on praying for four crucial areas of change:
Personal – Family – Communities – Nation


Tuesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

Tuesday’s 6:15 AM

To Live is Christ; To Die is Gain

Using Paul’s radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, To Live Is Christ To Die Is Gain by Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity. Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don’t get Jesus, we’ve lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain—this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him—everything should be about Jesus.

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Worship, Concerts, & Films , Saturdays at 6:00 pm!

Saturday 7:00 pm weekly Worship and fellowship. Working on Sunday mornings? No problem. There is plenty of opportunity to lift praises to God in song and testimony on Saturday nights! We are inviting you to come, share, and join in in celebrating what our AWESOME GOD is doing in our lives. The Bible tells us we are not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, (see Heb. 10:25). Please make every opportunity to attend. Sometimes we have a concert, other times a movie, but we always are doing something to lift up the name of Jesus. Many in the community have said they cannot come on Sunday Mornings so this is your opportunity to Worship the King during the evening. We are here to serve the Lord and in doing that serve you! Remember John 3:16, For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
