The latest FBC Trussville news you need to know!  (Updated 3/24/17)

This Sunday @First Baptist
March 26 • 9:15 & 10:45

The world teaches us that there are many roads to Heaven. It doesn’t matter which one you’re on, just be sincere and it will all work out for you, one way or another. However, scripture teaches a very different story. Perhaps Jesus’ account of the rich man and Lazarus best illustrates the gravity of our decision here on earth, and the consequences that follow. This Sunday we’ll look at this story as we seek the answer to the question, What happens when we die?
