Hebrews 10.19-25 - Lettuce Pray 1

Moving on from the fact of Christ as our High Priest, the writer of Hebrews call us into action. To draw near to God, holding fast to the truth of the Gospel, and stirring up one another. This week we will dive into the first two “Let Us” commands as we remember this great gift of Christ, that God has provided for our salvation and sanctification.

Hebrews 10.1-18 - Turning It Inside Out

God does more than save us, he remembers our sins no more, imprints His law onto our hearts and minds, and empowers us with confidence in who He is and what He is able to accomplish through us. This is the work of the new covenant, and the power of the cross. It begins in us and works its way out into the world.

Isaiah 40.11 - Say Hello to Your Mother for Me

Everyone has a mother, even the Son of God. This is a day not only to celebrate mothers, but to remember them, to pray for them. What does it mean to be a mother? It means to hurt, to carry, to love, to die to self as you pour yourself out for your children. So what can we say? What do mother’s need to hear?


Hebrews 9 - House of Gold

The Temple is just a shadow of heaven. When Moses was on top of the mountain, God showed Him the tabernacle, a small piece of the presence of God that would dwell on earth to act as embassy, temple, and house. When Christ dies, the temple becomes obsolete, for what use is the shadow when the substance stands before us.


Hebrews 8 - Hard Bargain

God has made an agreement with the nation of Israel. If they follow after His heart and obey His commands, they will live and prosper in the land He has given. But they cannot obey; and neither can we. Thank be to God He has made a way to salvation, not based on our works, but the accomplishment of Christ. By His blood we find salvation.


Rev. Kevin Bishop - They Kingdom Come

Kevin and Margie Bishop join us this Sunday. The Bishops are members of First Baptist serving in Ecuador as pastor-training missionaries, while also engaging in evangelism and outreach through their Dental Brigade and other services. This is a very special Sunday to join together and rejoice alongside of them for the great work God is doing.



Easter 2023 - Risen One 

Today we rejoice in the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He who broke the bonds of sin and death, leading us out of the domain of darkness and into His Kingdom of marvelous light. Let us not get caught up in the stresses and anxieties of the world, for He has conquered the world, and has made us more than conquerors.

Easter 2023 - Exalted One

High and lifted up is our Lord Jesus, who has ascended to sit at the right hand of the father, to judge to living and the dead. His work on the cross now complete, we await the day when He will arise from His throne in heaven and establish His kingdom in the New Heaven and New Earth. While we wait, He intercedes on our behalf.


Easter 2023 - Separated One 

Christ is separate from us. Right now physically He sits exalted in heaven at the right hand of God. Yet by the Spirit of God placed inside of us through our faith in Him, we are bound to Him in an intimate relationship that surpasses our understanding. This is Christ, separate in His sinlessness, His sacrifice, and His service as our High Priest.

Easter 2023 - Unstained One 

The pure, holy one has come down from heaven taking on the form of a bondservant, but unstained by sin. By His virgin birth and perfect obedience, Christ is able to remain unstained and even purify us through faith in Him. How can we remain pure in a world stained with sin? Only to follow the Christ who has paved the way.

Easter 2023 - Innocent One 

The Innocent One is proven innocent on every occasion. From His baptism to His death, from the Jewish Elite to the Roman Rule, Jesus is the Innocent One, the Lamb of God who committed no sin, in whom no guilt is found. In our own guilt He makes us innocent before God, sinless and right with our Father in Heaven.

Easter 2023 - Holy One

The blood is the life. The wages of sin is death, and what better symbol is there then the spilling of life to show the penalty of our sin. As much blood that would be shed at the temple for the centuries of its operation, it was only enough to cover, not to pay for sin. It’s not the quantity of blood that mattered, but the quality. A perfect, sinless lamb.


Hebrews 7.15-28 - The Blood is the Life 

The blood is the life. The wages of sin is death, and what better symbol is there then the spilling of life to show the penalty of our sin. As much blood that would be shed at the temple for the centuries of its operation, it was only enough to cover, not to pay for sin. It’s not the quantity of blood that mattered, but the quality. A perfect, sinless lamb.

Hebrews 7.11-15 - My Weakness

The law is weak. It was not designed to save, but to reveal the holiness of God. In that revelation we see the sinfulness of man and the perfection of God. Christ our priest is able to bridge this gap by the sacrifice of His blood, bringing reconciliation and granting us the Holy Spirit. The law is weak, but our God is strong.


Hebrews 7.4-10 - All I Have To Give 

What makes Melchizedek superior to the Levites? In this section it’s giving; both in the form of tithing and blessing. Melchizedek blessed Abram and Abram willingly tithed to Melchizedek. In this exchange the writer of Hebrew reveals the dynamics of superiority. How then should we give? Freely and abundantly, as we ourselves have received.

Hebrews 7.1-3 - Three Kings 

Melchizedek has been a build of in the Book of Hebrews since chapter 5 and finally gets a full explanation in chapter 7. But as a character, Melchizedek has been on the mind of Hebrew scholars for thousands of years. Arriving out of nowhere in Genesis 14 and prophesied by David concerning the coming Messiah, he has been a powerful character.

Hebrews 6.13-20 - Promised You A Miracle

Promises and pie crusts are meant to be broken. Not out of animosity but because there are situations beyond our control. We may intend well, but a human promise can only be fulfilled as humanly possible. When God promises though, it is fulfilled as much as divinely possible, and our God is able.


Hebrews 6.9-12 - Sure and Certain

In the justice system, motive makes a big difference when charging someone with a crime, but is the hardest part to figure out. Even within ourselves, our motives aren’t always clear. But God is able to see past our actions and thoughts, deeper into our hearts, knowing our motives and guiding, even them, to greater purpose.


Hebrews 6.4-8 - Fire and Rain

Nothing can separate us from the love of God. But there are many ways we distance ourselves from that love or limit the effect of that love in our lives. The writer of Hebrews desires maturity, and states his concern in a firm warning about not taking your faith for granted, but making sure your faith isn’t just facts, but effective.


Hebrews 6.1-3 - ABC, 123

The Elementary things are those which we as believers should already be comfortable and familiar with in order to progress into maturity. In the same way that we need to know our letters to read and numbers to multiply, faith in God alone, the resurrection of the dead, and other truths  are the building blocks of living out our faith.

Hebrews 5.11-14 - The Milkman 

Milk is the primary source of nutrition in the very beginnings of life. It gives us essential vitamins, minerals, proteins that are the building blocks of life. From a mother it brings antibodies, stem cells, white cells and more. But there’s a time to move to solids, to put to work the body, to make wise decisions and use our knowledge for Godly purposes.

4 Gospels - The Gospel 

Christmas day awaits us as we join together to celebrate the arrival of our God and King, Jesus Christ. God with us, He who humbled himself to take on the form of a bondservant and become our sacrifice that we may find life in God, free from the guilt and chains of sin. We celebrate His arrival on earth and our induction into heaven because of it.

4 Gospels - John - Saving Love

The disciple whom Jesus loved brings us the most loved infused Gospel out of all 4 of them. John is a gospel that not only describes love, but defines it, and displays it. If we love God we will keep His commandments, a tangible display of faith in the love that God has for us, in that He would send His Son to die, that we may live with Him forever.


4 Gospels - Luke - Righteous Joy

Although Joy may be used to describe our feeling in different scenarios, true Joy is only found in response to the truth of God. Whether in the truth of the beauty of His creation, the truth of His presence in every circumstance, or the truth of considering the grace granted to us by His sacrifice on the cross.


4 Gospels - Mark - Powerful Peace

Peace comes not only through the laying down of arms, but also by the complete conquering of the enemy. Christ has conquered sin and offers peace to us if we lay down our pride and devote ourselves to Him. Because on His return it will be in conquest. Let us grow in this peace Christ has secured for us through His death.


4 Gospels - Matthew - Messianic Hope 

This Advent we will be uncovering the Gospels and how they bring to us the good news of great joy through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This Sunday is discovering the Messianic prophecies in Matthew as Jesus Christ comes as the foretold chosen one of God to bring this good news of God in the midst of our sin and separation.

Ruiz, Pedro - Matthew 18.31-45 - The Two Debtors 

Elder Pedro Ruiz brings us the message this week from Matthew of The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant. Forgiveness is a gift from God that  changes our lives and allows the lives of those around us to be changed when we forgive them. Let us loose the bonds of vengeance that create hatred and self destruction and be changed by extending grace.

Joshua Timari - Philippians 2.1-11 - Come Together

Our worship leader, Joshua Timari will be presenting the message this week on being of “one accord.” The church is made from people of all cultures, tongues, abilities, and personalities. The binding ingredient for this confusion of people is our faith and example in Jesus Christ. Let us be bound tighter in like-mindedness and fulfill our purpose.


Hebrews 5.1-10 - Stuck in the Middle with You

Though Jesus had available to Him all the power of God, He did not use any of it for His own purposes. He lived in complete obedience to the Father and that includes growing up and learning that as a human, obedience comes at a cost. Even in this He is greater, in His obedience, in His sacrifice, in His position as High Priest.


Hebrews 4.14-16 - Call for the Priest 

The writer of Hebrews reminds us of the Great High Priest, Jesus Christ. Earlier it was in relation to being the perfect and holy high priest who fulfilled God’s every requirement. In this case it is a compassionate High Priest who understands our temptations and sufferings and intercedes for us before our Father God.

Hebrews 4.11-13 - Under the Blade

The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. Not a weapon by which God cuts us down, but a scalpel that He wields with such skill so as to surgically expose our hearts, remove our sin, and begin the process of rehabilitation. As more and more we develop a heart for God and of Christ.

Hebrews 4.3-10 - RIP

The rest that God has provided is the fullness of the promise made to Abraham, his descendants, and all the nations through him. This rest is for those united by faith in Christ, and a shining hope for tomorrow made available to us today. We rest not only on the Sabbath, but every day in and through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

Hebrews 4.1-3 - Hopes and Fears

Heaven awaits those who call upon the name of Jesus Christ. Though all are not saved, for more than words and deeds are required to be welcomed into the glory of God. We are saved by faith in Jesus, united by the Spirit of God, and finally brought into the rest that He Himself has prepared for us. Let us approach our God with fear and trembling.

Get Out Of The Boat - Elder Brian Dennis 

Brian graciously agreed with little notice to share the Word with us. He currently serves as an elder and  financial secretary for FBC and we are grateful for his years of service to our church family.

As we continue to pray for those affected by wind and waves, let us take courage and focus on our sovereign Son of God.

The Book of Hebrews 3.14-19 - What Does It Take? 

Though they heard the thunderous voice of God, though they saw the pillar of fire every night, though they were brought to victory by the stilling of the Sun in the sky, they were condemned not by their actions but their unbelief. Let us learn from this lost and rebellious generation and turn our hearts to God.

The Book of Hebrews 3.7-13 - Lost Generation 

For forty years they wandered in the wilderness. Not lost, God was always guiding them, providing for them, and even present with them in the cloud by day and pillar of fire by night. Yet this generation was entirely lost, cut off from entering into God’s promised land. Their rebellion led them to destruction, be on guard against an unbelieving heart.

The Book of Hebrews - 3.1-6 - In the House of Stone and Light

 Moses is the most influential and revered human figure in the Old Testament. David may have been a man after God’s own heart, Abraham was chosen and blessed, but Moses was a friend of God in a relationship that no other human until the New Testament  ever had. Yet Jesus is still greater, in faithfulness, in glory, in the house of God as Son.

The Book of Hebrews - 2.17-19 - Devotion and Desire


The role of the High Priest was to lead the spiritual direction and worship of God amongst all of Israel. He was a leader, a guide, a sage, a mediator between man and God. The High Priest was also an partial illustration of the fullness to come through Christ, our Great High Priest, who through His sacrifice, restores our relationship with God.



Book of Hebrews - 2.14-16 - Death and All His Friends 

Death and the fear of death are weapons used by Satan to keep humanity in check, to keep us afraid of the eternity that awaits that we either deny it entirely or turn to anything that may deliver us. But this fear of death has no hold over those who put their trust in Christ. For by faith in Jesus, we have become even more than conquerors over death, an brought into the family of God. Death will die, and his friends with him.

Book of Hebrews - 2.10-13 - Take It To The Source 

Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man. And while we adore and bask in the fullness of His divinity, it’s His humanity that allows Him to identify with us in every way, and for us to identify with Him in His death and resurrection. In these verses we will be discovering three commonalities that we share with our God, and the uncommon attributes that welcome us into saving grace.

Book of Hebrews - 2.1-4 - Center of Attention

The message we have been entrusted with is one greater than Moses’ on Sinai. For while he received the Law, it would bring only condemnation. We have been granted the message of Salvation, that Christ came in fulfillment of the Law, to set us free from sin and death that we may dwell in the house of our Father forever. Pay attention to this message, because it’s the one that delivers souls from Hell.


Book of Hebrews - 1.5-14 - All My Favorite Songs

The Psalms (literally “praises’), are songs and poems that are meant to be used in every aspect of life, from formal worship to personal petition. They are the expressions of the heart, the emotional center of the Bible, where God is welcomed into the deeper parts of self. They are also rich in prophecy, which the writer of Hebrew uses to celebrate the superiority of the Son, and the fullness of God in Christ.


Book of Hebrews 1.5-14 - I'm No Angel 

Angels appear throughout the Bible but always in the service of God. This week we’ll be discovering the characteristics and purposes of angels, and comparing them with the greatness of Christ. What is an easy comparison is muddled by heresy, misinterpretation, and just plain being wrong. Let us discover the truth of angels and the glory of Christ.

Book of Hebrews - 1.3-4 - State of the Union

Christ holds supremacy of all things. Both because He is God, creator of all things, provider, sustainer; and because He is human, perfect in every way, laying down His life in obedience to the Father, so He has been lifted up to the highest place that ever knee shall bow and every tongue confess. This dual nature of Christ is a mystery and gift of salvation. Apologies that the first part was lost in technical error.


Book of Hebrews - 1.1-2 - Ever Present Past

The Book of Hebrews is rich in theology, in practicality, and in empowering the believer for every good work that God has prepared beforehand.  The opening verses talk about God’s revelation, previously through the prophets and now the His only begotten Son. The superiority of Christ is revealed in His work, character, and person.
