Our Future Home

As Senior Pastor and on behalf of the family of the First Baptist Church, I want to thank you for visiting our website. At the First Baptist Church, we believe God calls each of us to be engaged in a passionate pursuit of Jesus Christ. There is no higher calling than to seek the Lord with all your heart, and in so doing, to glorify Him. We welcome you to join us in this pursuit. The fact that Jesus died for our sins, was buried, and then rose from the grave is our fundamental belief. He lives today and stands ready to give abundant and eternal life to all those who repent of sin and place their faith in Him. We invite everyone to receive Jesus Christ as Saviour and Lord.

What a joy it is to introduce you to our church! At the First Baptist Church, our doors are wide open to people from all backgrounds, regardless of where they are on their spiritual journey.

One of life’s most beautiful words is ‘family’. At the First Baptist Church, we take seriously the Bible’s teaching that Christians are the family of God and therefore brothers and sisters in Christ. As a “family of faith” we seek to worship and serve God, share the good news of the gospel message, and provide the spiritual environment necessary for the believer’s spiritual growth.

In short, you will find us to be a God centered, caring community of individuals who are excited about having the opportunity to extend to you the same love, hope and joy we have received from the Lord. We extend to you a cordial invitation to join us this coming Lord’s Day as the family meets to draw near to God through prayer, thoughtful contemporary songs, traditional hymns and inspiring relevant messages from God’s Word. After the worship service we linger over refreshments, so please take a moment to get to know us better. God bless you.

Sincerely yours in Christ,  
Pastor Keith Axford

News from Yuri:
My Visa approval is now underway and I am making plans to return to Japan in early January. Please pray for God's favor.

Praise item from the Hohns:
About two years into the civil war here in Cameroon (now into its third year), the leadership of the Cameroon Baptist Convention Youth and Students Department (CBCYSD) realized that thousands of their youth had become IDPs (Internally Displaced Persons), no longer able to attend school, were unemployed and traumatized. After a number of prayer and brainstorming sessions they proposed the idea of providing micro loans for small businesses, as well as provide capacity building workshops on various topics. This idea grew and quickly became YEEP – Youth Economic Empowerment Program.

Initial financial support for YEEP came from other CBC youth who were not IDPs, were still in school or still had jobs. Soon, churches, other ministries, and individuals started contributing. Generous donations even started coming in from abroad.

To date, over 400 youth have received trauma counseling, spiritual & personal development training, and small business skills, along with micro loans or grants. A couple of testimonies we’ve heard from YEEP participates are:

“I am once again an asset to my family and no longer a liability.”

“I am now free from the bondage of hate. I can forgive even those who killed my mother and raped me.”

Cameroon has a young population with a median age of 18.7 years and 41.25% of the population below the age of 14. Cameroon’s youth of today are the nation’s leaders of tomorrow. Many have been adversely affected by the on-going civil war. YEEP is making a positive and holistic difference in the lives of tomorrow’s leaders – spiritually, emotionally, and economically.
