Making God Smile

Martha and I are away for a few days and we appreciate Jay Johnston and the other pastors who are doing the work of ministry.  We look forward to being back next week and beginning a new sermon series Sealed: Living Godly Lives in an Ungodly World. The sermons will be taken from Paul’s letter…

Making the Biggest Differences

Have you considered what you might do to make real and substantial differences in your life? I believe that there are four significant things that you could do to make the biggest difference in your life. First, Learn to Live as Husband and Wife.

Television Ministry to Return June 5

After an almost eighteen month absence, the television ministry of First Baptist Church will return on June 5, 2011. We hope that the program will be even better than before and that we will continue to see the positive response that we have had in the past. We are thankful to be aired on WGNO…

Getting Ready For Easter

Easter is now two weeks away. We really need to get ready to celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Christians have been getting ready for Easter in one form or another since the resurrection of Jesus from the dead and His ascension to the right hand of the Father. What can we do to make this…

I Have Really Good News, Part Three

March 2011 is the tenth anniversary of the First Baptist Church in our present location. Since March 2001, we have almost paid for the entire project of relocation and building, an investment of over $22 million. We currently owe about $1 million. If we continue to give as we have, by the end of October…

Passion: The Week That Changed Everything

Next weekend, we begin a new sermon series from the Gospel of Mark that looks at the last week of the earthly ministry of Jesus. More than any other Gospel, the Gospel of Mark clearly shows the progression of the last week of Jesus’ earthly ministry. The last week consumes Mark 11-16. This climactic part…

I Have Really Good News, Part Two

Last week, I shared with you the good news that the indebtedness of First Baptist Church is now only $1,200,000. Our indebtedness is a result of our relocation from downtown Covington and the building of our 43 acre campus at a cost of over $22 million. In ten years we have almost paid for all…
