From The Pastor’s Desk

At First Thessalonian Missionary Baptist Church anniversaries are significant moments in the church's history. It is hard to believe that we are celebrating our fifty fifth church anniversary already.  Wow! Time flies quickly! As we commemorate another year of God’s leadership we give praise to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 

My friends, God has given First Thessalonian Missionary Baptist Church a challenge to pray about how we can share a message that points people to the grace of God.  In all that we do, we will be led by the Holy Spirit; following and embracing the Baptist doctrine; ensuring that our efforts are Bible based, Christ led, and Mission bound. 

We invite everyone to join with us and have a tremendous year in the Lord by reaching out beyond our walls to the community and mankind. As believers, we encourage good fellowship amongst the saints and invite all guests to be inspired to seek the God’s divine truth. 

The mission of the First Thessalonian Missionary Baptist Church is to win souls for the glory of God by the teaching and preaching of God's word through bible study, evangelism, mission work, and Christian education. We have thoroughly enjoyed the lessons that God has been teaching us through His holy word.  

Our theme this year is II Peter 3:18, “But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory now and forever. Amen.”  

My friends that “grace” is Jesus’ eternal light that He is calling us to share with others. We ask that you think of a co-worker, family member, friend, or stranger who needs grace. Pray for that person.

Christians who have Jesus Christ as the eternal light in their life can tell a confused world that God’s grace is sufficient. We hope it will be a blessing worshiping the Lord with us as we grow in grace.
