What’s Love Got to Do With It?

After many years of ministry and a lot of higher education, there is one thing about the Lord Jesus Christ that constantly leaves me confused, but yet amazed. How he loves us so much? So much that He was willing to take on flesh from infancy for thirty-three years, endure persecution and die a horrid death on a cross. In addition to this, after he takes his rightful place at the right hand of God, Jesus intercedes on our behalf eternally, while simultaneously being the Lord of our lives. From Genesis to Revelation, the Bible is very clear about how the Love of Jesus Christ originated in … [Read more...]

The Story

FBC Christmas Email Flyer 2013

It is the most “wonderful time of the year”, Christmas! How wonderful to celebrate the greatest gift ever given, Jesus Christ, the Messiah of the world, born of a virgin in a lowly manger. What a great story of amazing love, compassion, and grace. Yet, the story does not begin or end at the manger. “The Story”, began in the heart of God in the beginning of time, before the foundations of the world were laid; to provide the perfect sacrifice for the sin of an imperfect people. You see, Christmas is more than a story about “Baby Jesus”, it’s a story of how far love will go to … [Read more...]

Lottie Moon Post Office

lottie moon

Lottie Moon Post Office officially opens on Sunday, December 8! If you're not familiar with the Lottie Moon Post Office and what it's all about, here's the gist. Lottie Moon is a dearly-remembered Southern Baptist Missionary who served in China in the 1800s. The reason she is so dearly remembered is because of her influence on how the Southern Baptists viewed and supported missionaries. Southern Baptists knew mission work was important, but they didn't realize how much support missionaries needed from the home base, let's say, in order to spend their time doing what they were called to do - … [Read more...]
