A Word from Our Pastor

Good morning, First Baptist Church!

Last Sunday was a great day as we celebrated the commitments of numerous young parents who dedicated themselves to raising their children for the glory of God!  We applaud and support these parents!

Today, we move to the other end of the spectrum, as we celebrate students who have achieved a High School diploma and are about to be launched into the world as young adults.  We celebrate their achievement, and we challenge them to go live a pure, holy, Bible-based, Christ-following, courageous, Godly life!

The best way to do that this morning is for all of us to be taught and reminded of the “most excellent way”…a life filled with LOVE!

May God speak to all of us,

Pastor Danny
