What is “Revival”? For some, the idea of revival is simply a momentary block of days on a calendar where a church tries to connect people to Jesus. For others, revival is a more inward effort to rekindle and foster a passion for Jesus Christ, for the gospel, for a life of holiness and empowering.
There are two possible definitions for what we at First Baptist Church are actively praying for:
- A restoration to use, acceptance, activity, or vigor after a period of obscurity or quiescence.
- A meeting or series of meetings for the purpose of reawakening religious faith, often characterized by impassioned preaching and public testimony.
In short, we are hoping, though powerful ,Christ-centered preaching and intentional, focused prayer to experience a genuine reconnection and recommitment to Christ and His mission for the church. For some of us, that may mean addressing besetting sin, for others it may represent finding peace in our troubled times. And yes, for some, it may mean the first real encounter with the risen Savior in saving faith. Regardless, it is our prayer and overwhelming desire that we all are renewed, refreshed, and strengthened in our walk, and that the Love of Christ would so fill us that none can miss that we have been with Jesus!
But we also recognize the warning found in 1 Peter 4:17 “For it is time for judgment to begin with the house of God”.
We will have a time of food and fellowship each evening beginning at 6PM, with the preaching service to begin at 6:30PM.
If you would like to bring a musical special any evening, please reach out ASAP so that we can get you on the schedule.
