Church doesn't have to be a place where you get lost in the crowd. At FBC Westhoff (First Baptist Church) you'll find a congregation that always has room for one more; a place where the Bible is preached with conviction, and where the love of God is tangibly expressed beginning with our welcome of every visitor. Come and grow with us through the various discipleship and fellowship opportunities offered throughout the year. We are a small church full of loving hearts, here for you.
There are two truths about Jesus Christ which every true follower of Jesus Christ knows perfectly – Jesus has come and Jesus will come again.
This truth is the focus of the season in which we now live – or ought to be and this truth is the focus of Psalm 98 but do you know that it is also the focus of one of our favorite hymns at this time of year – Joy to the World?
What do we focus on during this season?
What are we looking for?
Perhaps I’m projecting this upon you but I think that many people are seeking hope, joy and peace at this time of year – as if these things are not just as desirable, needed and frankly available at any and all other times of the year as well and from the same source. Perhaps people, even people who only come to worship among us a couple of times a year (at Christmas time and “Easter” or the celebration of resurrection) somehow know that hope, joy and peace can only be found in the incarnate and resurrected Lord.
Many people sing joy to the world and have none because they think that joy is found in a season, a trinket or a tradition instead of in a person. They have sung “Joy to the World” but in their hearts they know nothing of the joy which the psalmist or the hymnist wrote of – how the song would change for them if they did.
Everything you long for and need in your life – peace, joy, hope and grace; these all can be found in Jesus Christ. Trust Him today.
