This Sunday @First Baptist
January 26, 2020
9:15 & 10:45am

“This is to My Father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be My disciples.” John 15:8 (NIV)

“You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit—fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in My name.” John 15:16 (NIV)

How do our lives make a difference in the world? When we abide in Him, our lives will look like it, reflecting Him in a way that blesses those around us. Join us this Sunday as Pastor Buddy continues our series in John 15, examining how a life in Christ will produce fruit that lasts. 

Can’t be with us? Join us through our livestream.
