Community Tent Revival, September 27-October 1, 2015

Posted at 4:18 pm | Last Edit on 07/22/2015 | Post by pastor

We are going to be a part of something that is unprecedented in our area. Six churches are coming together to jointly hold an Community Tent Revival. These churches are F.B.C. Mt. Vernon, Cornerstone Baptist, Mt. Pisgah Baptist, Tarrytown Baptist, Bear Creek Baptist and Higgston Baptist. The Tent will be put up on the Higgston Baptist Church softball field. We have invited Evangelist Brian Fossett to be our guest speaker for the week. What can you do to help? Well, you can certainly begin to pray for this great endeavor. We ALL need to bathe this week in prayer. God will move in a mighty way if we humble ourselves and pray and turn away from our sins. You can also put this week on your calendar and begin to help us publicize it. I especially hope that you will pray for and talk to everyone you know who is lost and encourage them to join you each night of the revival. Many are going to put up yard signs publicizing the week. I am so excited about this week. I have been looking forward to it for some time now! I hope you will also get excited as we look forward to what God is going to do in our midst. Who are you going to bring? Rev. Mark Jones

Happy NEW Year

I recently read a church sign that said, “Calendars change, but God never does!” Isn’t that wonderful? Here we are experiencing a New Year filled with new resolutions, new problems, new opportunities and who knows what else that will be new to us. One of my favorite verses from the Bible is found in 2 Corinthians 5:17, where it says, “If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!” (NIV) That verse tells us that when Christ comes into our lives He makes us into a new creation, something that never existed before. The Believer is 100% themselves with all their sin and guilt removed and Christ filling every fiber of their being. The Believer is brand new! Another great passage from Revelation 21:4-5 tells us that God “will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (NIV) When we get to Heaven we will get to experience new everything! Don’t you sometimes wish you had something new? What if everything in your life were new? In Heaven you will have a new body, new clothes, new relationships, a new name and new experiences you cannot even begin to anticipate yet. If you are NOT a Believer, I have Good News. You can have a new start today. Romans 6:4 tells us that “We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.” (NIV) Please contact me and I will be glad to tell you all about this Good News and how you too can have a New Life in Christ! Happy New Year! Pastor Mark

Fall Back into Church

Posted at 1:09 pm | Last Edit on 10/31/2013 | Post by pastor

The writer of Hebrews said in Hebrews 10:24-25, "Let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching." You can get in the "habit" of NOT meeting with your church family. Be careful what habits you start, some are hard to break. We think about Time Change in the Fall (Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday, November 3) but we should also let it remind us not to fall away from God and the church. I hope to see you and your family this Sunday. Don't forget that Sunday School begins at 9:45 a.m. Pastor Mark
