Worship Guide | March 26, 2023


By Victoria Bailey

A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, First Baptist Church!!

I am so honored to be your pastor, and it has been my privilege to guide us into deeper involvement in the area of missions. If you are new to our church, it is our belief that “EVERY MEMBER OUGHT TO BE A MISSIONARY.”

But now let me take it a step further…

MISSION IS TO THE CHURCH AS FIRE IS TO BURNING – In other words, you cannot have one without the other! A church not reaching out and sharing the message of Jesus with our world is no church at all.

This morning, we deepen our church’s mission by welcoming friends who are missionaries to Jewish people, Greg and Susan Savitt. Let’s receive, embrace, and pray for their efforts as they share with us.

He came for us, so we go for Him!
Pastor Danny
