  • We only have a glimpse of Heaven as conveyed by Apostle J0hn.

Here are some “sound bites” from last Sunday’s morning message, “Stop GOING to church (and start BEING the church) based on James 1:22-25:

  • The church is the building.
  • The church is the members.
  • We are the body of Christ.
  • When we meet, it isn’t “church” – it is the assembling of the church.
  • We must have this mindset if we are to live as God would like us to live.

Tragedy in Maryville, IL

Posted by Rick on March 8, 2009

Please pray for the First Baptist Church family of Maryville, Ill.  Today, during their early service, a gunman entered the building and murdered their pastor, Dr. Fred Winters.

This is taken directly from their church website:

A Message About Today’s Loss

Today, a little after our 8:15 service began, a man entered First Baptist Church and fired several gunshots at our Senior Pastor, Dr Fred Winters.

Please pray for Dr. Winter’s family, our two brave members who were injured when they stopped the assailant, for the assailant himself and his family, and for our church members as they deal with this tragic loss.

In this day, where uncertainty seems to abound creating an environment in which people are vulnerable in doing things they might not do otherwise, one thing is certain, we, as human beings need a foundation upon which we can live our lives. We at First Baptist Maryville, along with other Christian believers, share this conviction: that foundation is God’s Word. In the pages of the Book we call the Bible, we find the pathway for peace, hope, and a quality of living life despite what circumstances we find ourselves in.

To those who believe in the power of prayer, we covet your prayers right now.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Christmas Lights” based on Matthew 2:1-2,10-12):

  • The Star of Bethlehem led the Magi to Jesus.
  • It allowed them to worship Jesus.
  • It allowed them to present their gifts, but leave with the wealth of the knowledge of the newborn king.
  • It allowed them to have wisdom from God, inasmuch as they obeyed His command in a dream.
  • Jesus told us that we are the light of the world.
  • Like the Christmas Star, we are to lead others to Jesus, so that they, too, might worship Him.

Here are some “Sound Bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “A Convenient Morality” based on Romans 1:18-32:

  • We alter God’s word to make it convenient for us and to excuse our sins.
  • When people suppress God’s truth, there are consequences.
  • When people quit honoring God and start serving themselves, there are consequences.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to the lust of their hearts.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to degrading passions.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to a depraved mind.
  • The solution is to return to God.
  • Don’t get too judgmental regarding the sin of others. God hates your sin, too.
