    Have you met with God today personally?

    Time spent in Bible study and prayer prepares us for future encounters with those who are searching. Are you looking up, fixing your eyes on Jesus, the author and finisher of your faith?

    Do you have any
    2 a.m. friends?

    For many churches the relationships and community that happen at church become an end in themselves. At First Baptist, our mission emphasizes “living in Christ” as opposed to “doing church in Christ.”

    Have you discovered your sweet spot of service?

    We believe when we serve alongside others we build unity and fellowship. In service to others, we are able to demonstrate the love that Christ, the ultimate servant, has shown us.

    Am I close to someone who is far from God?

    If you never interact with those who don’t know Christ, consider broadening your relationships to include them. Do your homework by having a quiet time. Be open to the prompting of the Holy Spirit.

    This week’s Message

    Who is My Neighbor? / Luke 10:25-37 / Dr. Steve Wise / July 23, 2017

    Most people know the story of the Good Samaritan. In fact, many of us have heard that parable since childhood days in Sunday School or Vacation Bible School. Actually, Jesus offered that story in response to a question asked by a religious scholar of His day: "Who is my neighbor?" Today's message comes from Dr. Steve Wise, Minister of Missions at First Baptist Spartanburg, who explains the definition of a neighbor according to Jesus' teachings. "A neighbor," says Dr. Wise, "is anyone and everyone whose life intersects with our own." The Gospel compels us to make new neighbors. Join our service as we learn today what it means to be good neighbors on our streets, in our hometown, our state, our country and our world.
