Worship guide | September 3, 2023

By Victoria Bailey

From the Pastor

Good morning, FBC Corsicana!!

Have you grown in your faith after you got saved? Or are you still at the same spiritual age you were 10, 20, or 30 years ago? These are really important questions. Today, we continue in the sermon series titled “Beyond Conversion”.

This series affirms the truth that…

“There is so much more to being a Christian than just walking down the aisle, getting baptized, joining a church, sitting in a pew or saying that you believe in Jesus.”

Conversion is only the front end of the Christian life. Beyond our conversion there has to be growth, so the sermon today is going to continue to offer practical information on how to grow in your faith. Specifically today, we are going to discuss how much you need to study the Bible. If you’re going to grow beyond your conversion, you have to learn to study God’s Word on your own.

I pray this sermon is helpful for all of us as we seek to grow!

Today we begin receiving our Texas Baptist Missions Offering. Please give an additional $20 and label it “Mary Hill Davis Offering.”

Thank you!!
Dr. Reeves
