What does The Holy Spirit, Tongues of Fire, the church on a mission, and a vicious man name Saul all have in common? That's right, the book of Acts! At First Baptist Church of Kamloops we are walking through this book of adventures, observing rugged fishermen become bold preachers of the gospel, watching the church light on fire standing firm against beatings, jailing and stonings,observing radical changes in the lives of unbelievers and Jesus haters, and watching Christ's disciples live out the commission that Jesus commanded. "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you." Please join us Sunday at 10:30 am as we continue to walk through this book of the Bible and see how it is applicable to our lives today!
The book of 1st Timothy is a Pastoral Epistle (letter from Paul to a church leader). It was written to give encouragement and leadership guidelines to a young pastor named Timothy, Paul's "true child in the faith" at the church in Ephesus.
Obedience in everyday life pleases God. When we reflect His character through our interactions with others, we bring glory to Him. Ruth’s sacrifice and hard work to provide for Naomi reflected God’s love. Boaz’s loyalty to his kinsman, Naomi’s husband, reflected God’s faithfulness. Naomi’s plan for Ruth’s future reflected selfless love. ~ Chuck Swindoll
The Gospel of Matthew is a story about a once and coming King. Jesus of Nazareth is the Son of David, the long awaited for Messiah. He has come once, and Matthew tells the story of His arrival, ministry, sacrificial atoning work on the cross, and His promise to return soon.
