From Our Pastor

Welcome to our new home!  Here you will discover our intent to connect to the world around us.  This exciting journey called life is ever changing.  Our intent to keep up and lead out is constantly challenged.  You live in a quantum paced civilization with many unexpected twists and turns.  Because of that, it is our conviction that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is more important than ever to keep us tethered to a hope and a foundation that is certain.

Our on campus gatherings are designed to help you.  We expect week to week that you will encounter the Spirit of God and be invited by Him into a deeper and more meaningful relationship.  As your heart warms to His invitation, be assured that His heart is white hot for you!

As you learn more about us through this site, please take a moment and introduce yourself by contacting one of our wonderful and caring ministers or support staff.  We love meeting new cyber searchers!  If you are already a member of our family, leave a note, letting us know what God is doing in your life.  Remember to pray for us before leaving…

 

Coming in January 2018….

“Unless the Lord…” has been adopted as our theme for 2018. I will preach a series of messages in January form Psalm 127.

“Unless the Lord builds a house,
its builders labor over it in vain;
unless the Lord watches over a city,
the watchman stays alert in vain.
In vain you get up early and stay up late,
working hard to have enough food—
yes, He gives sleep to the one He loves.[a]

Sons are indeed a heritage from the Lord,
children, a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a warrior
are the sons born in one’s youth.
Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them.
Such men will never be put to shame
when they speak with their enemies at the city gate.”

Our church, like many churches in America, is ripe for revival! We must remember the words of the Psalmist who reminds us that apart from the Hand of God, any and every activity is void of any eternal significance.

I would add to these thoughts the idea that too many in the church today desire reform instead of revival. We are accustomed to taking sides on health-care reform, immigration reform, tax reform, and the list goes on. As the concept of reform creeps into our faith walk, we become satisfied with a quick and less than significant fix. But only in the church and by the hand of God will human hearts experience revival. Revival gets to the souls of men! Transformation and not mere reformation takes place.

These are exciting days as we focus on a regional ministry. Our members come from Madison, Gibson, and Crockett Counties. If you live within a 20 minute drive of 3400 E. Mitchell Street in Humboldt, you live near one of us! Join us in January as we unpack the truth of Psalm 127. Then on January 28 we officially launch the new work called The Church at Sugar Creek, a ministry of First Baptist!
