Welcome to worship with First Baptist Church. When life brings too many unknowns, we wish for the life we had before, for the familiar. We thrive in the ordinary. This series is a reminder to maintain confidence in the strength of our extraordinary God found in the blessings of ordinary living. "Surely the LORD is in this place--and I did not know it!” - Genesis 28:16 

Don't forget, tonight is our Tailgate Worship Gathering at the Activities Center at 7:30pm. Please join us for a meaningful time of worship.
Dr. Mike Queen, Pastor Emeritus
It is often said that ‘revenge is sweet’; but could it be that 'forgiveness is sweeter’? The ways of God are not the ways of man. That is why it is futile to try to remake God in our image rather than to be made into God’s image. 

What’s your favorite flavor of ice cream? Chocolate? Mint? Strawberry? Peach? While Jacob probably never tasted anything like ice cream, the sweet goodness of God was evident in his life as God’s promises to him were fulfilled and God’s blessings provided. As we wrap up this saga, remember the sweet sweet love of Jesus that remains with us and for us no matter what challenges we face along the way. 
Eternal God, you are present with us throughout our lives, even when others plot to do us harm. May we learn to live together in unity, that in all we do, we may sing your praises now and forever. Amen.
  • The way of Jesus is grace, mercy and compassion. Why are we so easily given to the judgment and condemnation of others? 
  • How do we make peace with the hurts of the past?
Trusting in God with all we have, we give to support the work of God's church because we believe in our mission to share God's love with our community and world in the name of Jesus. Give online or by mail. Giving allows us to keep being the church, even in the absence of our physical presence. Mail to: 411 Market Street, Wilmington, NC 28401. How To Give Online
God desires to have a relationship with you! He has given us ways to know Him better through His son, Jesus Christ. Knowing God and having faith in Jesus is a personal and individual decision for each person. Do you have questions about being in a relationship with God? We would love to talk with you and help you begin or deepen your faith journey.
