Weekday Impact

Before most people start their day, our Weekday staff welcomes bleary-eyed children and parents for another day of education. They teach the love of Christ and lay a foundation that some children share with others for years to come. We hear frequently from families how much they love their experience at First Baptist. One child […]

A Fugitive Eyewitness

A Fugitive Eyewitness

Mark 14:50-52 features the second eyewitness in my sermon series in Lent: a fugitive. Unlike the faithful woman with an alabaster box, this eyewitness reflects a realistic picture of a disciple. He’s the young man running away naked when Jesus is arrested. Our word “fugitive” comes from the Greek word used here: “fuego” or “to […]

Are We Willing to Follow Him?

This Easter, we’re focusing on the eyewitnesses around the cross. Everyone is an eyewitness to Jesus’ work; are we willing to follow him? This month, let me suggest a few ways to do that at First Baptist. Follow our Boston team and pray for them this week. Erin will be posting updates on our website. […]

A Faithful Eyewitness

A Faithful Eyewitness

This morning, we began a new series: Eyewitness. So many people were watching Jesus, but few were following. Today we noticed an unnamed woman from Mark 14:1-9 who knew more about Jesus than those closest to him. She walked in to a banquet, anointed his head, and “performed a beautiful service” for him (Mark 14:6). […]

Eyewitness

Jesus was under surveillance during the last week of his life. So many people watched, but few followed. Each one was an eyewitness to Jesus’ last hours, but few obeyed him. One betrayed him, another denied him, several plotted to arrest him, several ran away, but only two responded publicly to his work. For instance, […]

Why I Give

By Claire Aguda I first came to First Baptist in September 2008 as a very timid freshman attending a Progressive Dinner with the Baptist Collegiate Ministry, and this event allows new students to eat a course of meal at different churches in the area. However, I only made it the appetizer course at First Baptist […]

By following Paul’s example in 2 Timothy 4, they have given their lives to Jesus and recommitted to “fighting the good fight, finishing the course, and […]

Forty days prior to Easter, the church pauses to reflect, repent, and remember Christ’s sacrifice and resurrection. I want to challenge you to do a couple of things this season as I will be […]

Comfort in Crisis

Over the weekend, reports surfaced that 21 Coptic Christians were beheaded in Libya. Our thoughts and prayers are with these families and churches. The word martyr is a Greek word that means “witness.” Some witness in life, others in their death. Christians are not alone, of course. Depending on what part of the world you […]

Love Tallahassee: Give Generously

When was the last time you had a picnic with 900 of your closest friends? In Mark 6, Jesus and his disciples gathered with over 5,000 people and fed a multitude with just a few loaves of bread. This Sunday, we’re having an indoor picnic to see and experience all the ways that God is […]
