Verse of the week:
38For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, 39nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 8:38-39 NASB
The Coffee Oasis Ministry
First Baptist Church’s partnership with The Coffee Oasis means we are working alongside a local community organization to share God’s love. Our efforts include donating slightly used clothing, providing home cooked meals and some counseling.
What does it mean that The Coffee Oasis is a “faith-based” organization?
“Faith-based” to The Coffee Oasis means this:
We believe that Jesus is the Way, Truth, and Life.
We believe that Hope and Life and Peace and Love and Forgiveness are found in Him.
Therefore, we follow Him.
And following Him means:
We attempt to live the way Jesus lived.
We believe what Jesus believed.
Jesus loved those on the fringes who were often rejected and ostracized.
Like Jesus, we love and serve every individual regardless of their race or religion or gender or identity or values or beliefs or anything else.
We don’t force Jesus on anyone and we don’t require anyone to believe what we believe.
This is the way of Jesus and we are His followers.
