I sit here in an empty church building as I type out this blog. Two days ago we had the first two services inside this building. We had 15 people from the area come to the morning service and 6 come to the evening service. Although we did not have anyone believe on Jesus during these two services, we did have two people indicate on their visitor cards that they wanted to know more about believing on Jesus for salvation. We had another young man come who expressed interest in baptism (he and I will be talking this week further about salvation and baptism). All in all it was a great day. I look forward to seeing more. This week there is much to do. I will be visiting every family who came this week. We still have a few finishing touches to make in the building that we were not able to do before Sunday. We also have our midweek service this Thursday. This is just the beginning. There is so much to do. We are also in the midst of planning the special events in the coming months. The church has finally started, now it is time to go and grow! Here are a few things that I would like to accomplish in the next week…
- Finish what we lack inside the building.
- Visit every visitor.
- Start or at least set up a plan for discipleship with anyone and everyone that came that is willing.
- Invite more people.
Faith Baptist Church has been born, but it is just a baby, a newborn. In the fist weeks of infancy we believe God is going to set the foundation for years to come. Please pray this way with us.
