FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK: What God is Doing Now

These are exciting days to be part of First Baptist Church! God is on the move, and each of us get to be part of it. I have referenced Isaiah 43:18-19, more than once over the past several months: 
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.

We must not take for granted the faithfulness of those who have paved the way of our church over the past 145 years, but we must not dwell in the past. We move forward together; discerning what God is doing now. We have seen God move in the hearts of our people with many joining our church family and many being baptized into this journey over the last couple of months.

We now find ourselves worshipping together in one service – one family, bound together in love through one and the same Spirit. What a blessing to come together in the spirit of unity with one common purpose – to glorify Jesus in all we do.

Another exciting thing to consider is that we are approaching the one-year mark in our vision process. In October of 2022, we began this journey to become the family where believers can flourish in faith becoming rooted in Christ and deeply connected to one another to produce kingdom fruit. We launched the Million Moment Challenge at that time, and it has been inspiring to hear the stories of how many of our family members make moments regularly – moments of strengthening faith, moments of building community, moments of growing and serving.

As I said, God is on the move!

Don’t miss out! Stay connected, stay engaged and let’s see what God is going to do!
