Please attend Wednesday Nights
Beginning in the month of November, we will be looking into the Bible to find what
God says about the church on Wednesday nights. I would like for you to come to learn and discuss what God's will is for our church. We will be utilizing a DVD driven study called "Church Essentials" to help us learn from the Bible together. This study has the potential to unite and strenghten us under the authority of God's Word.
What does it mean to be a healthy church? This study will answer that question and get us discussing what we should do about it. Topics such as a vision for healthy churches, the truths on which churches build, connecting the church's inward purity and outward witness, guarding the church's front door and opening its back, real church growth, and church leadership will be investigated. My hope is that we would build the ministry of Holden First Baptist Church on the only sure foundation—God’s Word.
Thankfully, Jesus promises that as we follow His lead, He will build His church. In Matthew 16:18, Jesus said He would build His Church. He is the Head of the Church (Colossians 1:18) and gave His life so that we would be holy and blameless (Ephesians 5:25—27). Our church belongs to Him and all His purposes for us our found in Scripture.
Please attend on Wednesday nights so that we can grow as a church to be what Jesus, in His Word, calls us to be. Please be open to doing what Jesus calls us to. A healthy church is one that Jesus is in charge of. May we trust and obey.
Hoping to see you on Wednesday nights,
