Welcome to First Baptist Church! We are glad you are here. We want to meet your spiritual needs, as well as help if you need food or other physical necessities as the Lord leads us. We are a non-profit body of believers, sinners saved by God's Grace. We aren't perfect. We fail just like everyone else, but we love families and children. We know the family is hurting today, and we want to reach out to those hurting families in our area. Our food pantry is full if you are hungry, but we also have the Word of God to feed your soul. Jesus said in John Chapter 6, verse 35 "I am the bread of life. He who comes to Me will never go hungry, and he who believes in Me will never be thirsty."
GOD. HOLY GOD. SIN.
When was the last time that you told a lie? Have you ever stolen? Did the clerk give you too much change, and you just kept it because she should have been paying attention to her job? We all sin. We want 'me' to be happy, loved, and treated well, no matter what and most of the time, we will do anything we have to do to make sure that happens. Romans 3:23 says, "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God..."
The BIBLE says, "In the beginning God..."
God IS. He is the Creator. Genesis 1:1 says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth."
GOD IS. He is HOLY and JUST. Leviticus 20:26 says, "...I, the Lord, am holy,..."
If we as sinners, tried to approach the HOLY, JUST GOD, His righteousness would consume us. Romans 6:23 says, "...the wages of sin is death..." You say, "Everyone dies." Yes, everyone dies, but after death is life. Everyone will live for eternity. We will either live in Heaven or Hell. Jesus wants us to live in Heaven for eternity with Him, so Jesus came to pay for our sins. Romans 6:23 continues, "...the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 5:8 tells us, "...God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Yes, GOD IS. God is HOLY and JUST. He is RIGHTEOUS. Sinners can't live in His Presence, but He made a way for us because-
GOD IS LOVE. HE IS LOVE and He loves the people He has created.
In Acts chapter 3, we read in verse 19, "Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out..."
If we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and that He paid the price for our sins, and if we repent, or turn from our sins, then when God looks at us, He will only see the precious blood of Jesus, and we can live in His Presence forever. We need Jesus Christ in our life, so that when God looks at us, all He sees is the blood of Jesus that paid the price for our sins.

"Lometa First Baptist Church hosts the Capital Area Food Bank truck the third Wednesday of every month. Without their generous outreach through this program, my family would often go hungry. I am grateful to the church for the hours their members give in this effort."
