At the heart of humanity, the question of hope arises deep within our beings. We’re desperate to find the answer to the problems of our world—someone, or some thing to help us make sense of it all.
Fires rage, rivers flood, the earth shudders, wars rage, violence seems unstoppable and cities are leveled. Creation is broken. We spend so much time talking about, educating ourselves, and pouring our resources into making change through politics, science, medicine, charities and fundraisers. Is there hope for the future—for our children and grandchildren? Is there hope now?
The truth is, the only hope we have is the only hope we’ve ever had!
For over 150 years, First Baptist has held and lived out the mission that there is a True Hope now and forever when we believe fully on/in Jesus Christ and His work on the cross. That is why we believe God is calling us to be islands of hope in our city, workplaces, neighborhoods, and families.
Over the coming weeks we will be transitioning our name to True Hope to reflect our identity and who we have always been.
