We are going through an intentional Revitalization Process, please pardom us while our site is under construcion!
God is about doing NEW things!
Part of Revitalization may also include 'Rebranding' a church. Yesterday (January 5th), First Baptist Church Dent approved a name change! This will include a new purpose and logo.
Our church will soon be known as Beacon of Christ Church, "Reflecting the Light of Christ, through the lives of ordinary people."
This is a huge step for us! I want to thank our Leadership Team and our people for capturing a new vision for impacting people. We are 16 months into this. God has blessed with 16 additions to the church (people that were not going anywhere), and 12 baptisms!
I am humbled. I know God has Divinely decided to do this work and as Lead Pastor, I never want to take this for granted.
We pray for other struggling congregations. May God help you see new life, vision and raise up leaders to move you forward!
SUNDAY MORNING WORSHIP
We invite you to come and worship the Lord with us on Sunday morning. We enjoy a blended style of music that is a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary worship music. We especially value a clear and practical study of God’s Word. We would love to have you come and join us as we seek to grow in our personal relationship with the Lord. In the same way we encourage you, the individual, to listen to the Lord speak through the message of the music and the biblical preaching as if He was speaking directly to you as an audience of one. Come and worship with us!
A Prophet Without Honor
Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples. When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. He was amazed at their lack of faith.
Jesus Sends Out the Twelve
Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.
