Welcome To Our Website

This week in our church

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 Cheryl and Rod Hoople
 Recovery Ministry

yugoministries

March, 2015

Dear Family, friends, and valued ministry partners of Rod and Cheryl Hoople,

Greetings in the strong name of Jesus Christ from the Pacific Coast of Mexico. We are pleased to report that the name of the Lord is being lifted high here, chains of addiction are being broken, orphans arc being cared for; families are being put back together, and the hopeless are finding hope through the Gospel of Jesus.

We are writing today to inform you about some happenings in the life of Rod and Cheryl and to ask you to prayerfully consider coming alongside them in prayer and financial support during this season of their lives. As you know, Rod and Cheryl are the coordinators of YUGO's Recovery Ministry. This ministry offers the world's first completely hi-lingual (English/Spanish) Celebrate Recovery program to be offered anywhere. We are extremely proud of this life giving ministry and consider it to be a vital part of YUGO's vision.

What you may not know is that due to some very serious health issues with Cheryl's mother; the Hoople family has been encouraged by YUGO Leadership to take an extended furlough from their service on the field in Mexico. YUGO Ministries believes very strongly in God's model and plan for the family. With this in mind, we have asked not only Cheryl to stay with her mom, but for Rod to stay in Canada with Cheryl as they walk together through these deep waters with their parents. During this trying time, the ministry in Mexico must continue, and will continue. Under the leadership of Rod and Cheryl, the Recovery Ministry team will carry on all of the tasks involved in keeping this amazing ministry not only surviving but thriving.

We would like to ask for your special consideration in two specific areas. First, we believe that during this time the devil will try to attack the Hoople's finances. Many times, when supporters and partners believe that missionaries are simply "home" they stop sending financial support. We can not let Satan gain a foothold in this area when the truth is that Rod and Cheryl are still working during this time, and actually need more support now due to travel costs and the higher cost of living in Canada. Please pray with us and consider not only continuing your support, but a supplementary gift to help Rod and Cheryl navigate these difficult and trying days.

Second, we believe that during this time the Hoople family could get discouraged. When a person has missions in their blood, the last thing they want is to know that their team is on the field "fighting the good fight," while they are stuck on the home front. We can not let Satan attack Rod and Cheryl in this area. Will you join me in servant prayer on their behalf, and will you make it a point to contact them by way of e-mail, phone call, or social media? As a missionary myself I can tell you that this encouragement is food for a weary soul!

I want to thardcypu for your understanding and your continued partnership with our dear brother and Sister inthriit. For the Kingdom,

Nathan Alpert (For Scott Wester, CEO and the Board of Directors of YUGO Canada) President
