    Old Time Religion... The Spirit

    Old Time Religion... The Spirit

    Whenever you talk about the ‘old time religion,’ specifically of the Christian faith, you will encounter many sermons and teachings on the Holy Spirit.  Jesus himself talked much about the “Spirit:” in John 14:15-18 What do Jesus, and the other writers of the Bible, have to say about this Spirit? We'll discuss the main points of The Holy Spirit is God’s influence at work on this earthThe Holy Spirit works to further God’s Kingdom on earth The Holy Spirit is God’s presence on earth!  When you sense God’s presence, that is the Holy Spirit; when you feel God leading you, that is the Holy Spirit.  And, when you feel a pang of guilt or conviction over something you have said or done, that is the Holy Spirit.  He is, literally, everywhere doing the work of God!  We'd love to have you join us every Sunday at 500 West Truman Road in Independence.

    Old Time Religion... The Cleansing

    Old Time Religion... The Cleansing

    Interestingly, the sort of thing that has been preached for centuries by ministers of the Gospel – lives changed by Jesus is a powerful, yet ‘normal’ story for those who are in the faith! The message of Jesus is the same today as it has been since his birth – it is the message of the Gospel, the ‘good news’ of Jesus.If you could go back in time and listen to an ‘old time’ gospel message, here is an idea of what you might hear: The Gospel is God’s way of saving and changing human livesSin destroys life, and brings suffering and isolation from GodWe are saved by the simple act of professing Jesus as Savior and LordWe are saved by the simple act of professing Jesus as Savior and LordThe cleansing of Jesus is for all who will follow Him God loves everyone; Jesus died for everyone; and the Gospel is the power of God for salvation – for everyone!We'd love to have you join us every Sunday at 500 West Truman Road in Independence.

    Old School Religion... The Book

    Old School Religion... The Book

    We always need direction, don’t we? God knows we need help in this life – all of us!  And because He loves us, He wants to help so God gives us guidance in the important areas of our lives. Today we'll discuss a couple of areas where God helps us:Our faith is a “revealed” faithGod’s written word is His way of providing instruction and leadership God’s Word “cuts through” the nonsense and crazy thinking we pick up in this world – and can guide us into truth, and life.  The author of Hebrews said it like this:  “For the word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow, and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12) We'd love to have you join us every Sunday at 500 West Truman Road in Independence. Sunday School starts at 9:00AM, Fellowship at 10:00, and Sunday Service at 10:30. If you would like to contribute to our ministry, you can do so by clicking here.

    Old Time Religion... The Love

    Old Time Religion... The Love

    Today we begin a series talking about that “Old Time Religion.” And we begin by talking about the very foundation of that good and wholesome faith – God’s love.  Our text comes from I John 4:7-16 You will hear how Eternal and transforming love is God’s defining characteristic and God’s love is a transforming power in the lives of His people. “Love is patient and kind.  Love is not  jealous or boastful or proud or rude.  Love does not demand its own way.  Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of what has been wronged.  It is never glad about injustice, but rejoices whenever the truth wins out.  Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”    (I Corinthians 13:4-7) We'd love to have you join us every Sunday at 500 West Truman Road in Independence. Sunday School starts at 9:00AM, Fellowship at 10:00, and Sunday Service at 10:30. If you would like to contribute to our ministry, you can do so by clicking here.

    What do I want for Christmas...I want a good now, and forever

    What do I want for Christmas...I want a good now, and forever

    The Christmas story addresses the most profound problems of humanity.  This is the final part of the series asking the question, “What do you want for Christmas?”  The answer for today and addressed by Jesus’ birth is very simple:  “I want to have a good now, and forever.”              How can the birth of Jesus, so long ago, affect our desire for a good life both now, and into eternity?  Our text can help: Luke 1:26-37  Today we'll talk about:Jesus birth shows us that God’s power is at work on earthJesus’ birth gives us insight into God’s eternal plans for us God is at work – both now, and in the hereafter!   “For our perishable earthly bodies must be transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die.  When this happens – when our perishable earthly bodies have been transformed into heavenly bodies that will never die – then at last the scriptures will come true: “Death is swallowed up in victory. . . How we thank God, who gives us victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ our Lord!’ (I Corinthians 15:53-4, 57) We'd love to have you join us every Sunday at 500 West Truman Road in Independence.

    Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion

    It is a special Christmas Eve service at First Baptist. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,     and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.”
