A WORD FROM OUR PASTOR

Good morning, FBC!

Think about this with me….

A church can be busy, active, & bustling about, but it doesn’t guarantee that a particular congregation is healthy. A church can be busy, but when it comes to the heart of New Testament ministry, that church can still be striking out. It’s most likely true that many busy churches could actually post a sign on their door that reads, “This church really isn’t doing anything–but aren’t we doing it well?”

This thought is frightening to me, because I don’t want FBC Corsicana to be one of these churches. I don’t want us to confuse busy-ness or faithfulness. I want to make sure that we get down to the real purpose of God’s Church.

That’s why this morning, I want to begin a new sermon series titled, “Back to the B.A.S.I.C.S.” In this series we’re going to look at the 6 core values of the church. Join with me today is studying in Acts 2

Wanting the best for our church,

Pastor Danny
