At First Baptist, our worship style is blended with hymns and praise choruses, organ, piano and harp. Throughout the year we also use drama to deliver the message of Christ.
The sermons are generally expository in nature, that is, we analyze what the passage meant to the original audience, take that meaning and apply it to our lives today.
If you are new to the area, looking for a church home, or are just exploring your spiritual life, please come and join us. Bring your questions. Be ready for a challenge. Come and be transformed!
FROM THE PASTOR
“The Parable of the Butterfly”
As a butterfly soared overhead, one caterpillar said to the other, “You’ll never get me up in one of those things.”
Yet for every caterpillar the time comes when the urge to eat and grow subsides and he instinctively begins to form a chrysalis around himself. The chrysalis hardens and you’d think for all the world that the caterpillar is dead.
But one spring morning the life inside the chrysalis begins to writhe, the top cracks open, and a beautifully-formed butterfly emerges. For hours it will stand, stretching and drying its wings, moving them slowly up and down, up and down. And then, before you know it, the butterfly glides aloft, effortlessly riding the currents of the air, alighting on flower after gorgeous flower, as if to show off its vivid colors to the bright blossoms. Somehow, the miracle of the butterfly never loses its fascination for us. Perhaps, because the butterfly is a living parable of the promise of resurrection.
