Welcome to First Baptist Church — Lindsay

Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will life a live of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. We at First Baptist Church seek to pattern our life according to the teachings of Jesus. It is not a church. It is a community of Jesus followers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you!

Prayer For Haiti
   Please continue to pray for Haiti and our missionary Henri Claude Robert as they deal with all of the tremendous issues in Haiti.
 
Pastor Henri has reported that things in Haiti have become very unsafe, as there is a great deal of unrest in the country, and it is unsafe to go out.  There is no transportation and rioting in the streets to protest the high inflation.
 
Pastor Henri is desperately asking for extra donations to buy food for the people.  If you feel God’s leading in this way, you can send donations to:  CEDAN Mission, Inc.
