About Us

OUR MISSION 
Sharing Christ & Building Believers
 
OUR VISION
To Connect INTIMATELY with God
To Connect DEEPLY with one another
To Connect INTENTIONALLY with people who need Jesus Christ by touching them with His love

OUR PURPOSE

The Purpose of Holyoke First Baptist Church is to glorify God through: Evangelism, Worship, Fellowship, Edification, and Service.
 
OUR CORE VALUES
We unashamedly and uncompromisingly strive to be:

Biblically Based – God’s Word is our guide, authority and conscience in everything. We stand firm where Scripture stands firm and remain flexible where it is flexible. It is through the teaching and preaching of God’s Word where we have knowledge of the Gospel, where sinners are convicted, where hearts repent, and where people are moved to serve Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 3:16).

Passionate About Prayer – We believe the attitude and action of prayer is essential to everything we do as individuals and as a corporate body. Nothing of eternal significance or value is ever accomplished apart from prayer. It is through our prayers that we align our hearts to listen to God’s Spirit, we declare the goodness of God, give God thanks, seek forgiveness, find supplication and abide in His presence (Psalm 45:18, Jeremiah 29:11-13, Matthew 6:9-13, Colossians 4:2).

Committed to those far from God- We believe that lost people matter to God; therefore, they matter to us. Jesus came to seek and save the lost and has left us here, in part, to do the same. Our individual lives and corporate efforts will reflect this conviction to pursue the dead churched, de-churched, and unreached in our community and beyond with the love of Jesus Christ and the hope of the Gospel (Matthew 28:18-20; Luke 19:10, Rev. 2-3).

Invested With Our Gifts – We believe that each believer has been employed by the Holy Spirit with at least one spiritual gift and many God given talents in order to serve the body of Christ. Believers are called to be good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Spiritual giftedness and maturity determines where and how a believer serves. We believe excellence honors God and reflects His character. We strive for excellence without compromise in all areas of our ministry and lives. (1 Peter 4:10; Colossians 3:17).

Committed To Community – Belonging to our community requires a commitment to being intentionally involved with others in accountable, encouraging relationships. We believe life-change happens best in the context of abiding relationships that together are pursuing spiritual growth in Jesus Christ. In clusters of caring people, participants share and encourage each other toward spiritual growth. (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Relevant in Ministry – We believe that to be biblical we must be traditional. We also believe that to be effective in our ministry, we must share those traditions in a manner that engages our culture and in a way that they understand. The Bible does not tell us to use only certain styles of music, or to present our message only through words. The Bible does make it clear, however, that we are to find ways to effectively bring the message “into all the world” in order to make disciples. We believe this will require careful scrutiny of everything we do – new practices and old – and a willingness to change when necessary within biblical parameters, in order that we, “by all possible means might save some.” (1 Corinthians 9:22; 2 Thessalonians 2:15, 3:6; Ephesians 4:11-16).

Acts 2:42 And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the
breaking of bread and the prayers. 43 And awe came upon every soul, and many wonders and
signs were being done through the apostles. 44 And all who believed were together and had all
things in common. 45 And they were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing
the proceeds to all, as any had need. 46 And day by day, attending the temple together and
breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47
praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by
day those who were being saved.

 Sunday Morning Worship Service

Our Sunday Morning Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. is a great time of fellowship and worship. The music is based upon the great hymns and songs of the faith, and the preaching is from the solid foundation of God’s word. Come join our praise team of choir members and pianists for a great time of worship with us on Sunday morning and a time of refreshing, Biblically solid teaching.

Vida Abundante

On Sunday night at 5:30 p.m. join the Spanish service for guitar-led worship and a beautiful time of fellowship and praise, which carries a latin feel and wonderful Bible-based preaching in Spanish.

Prayer is the foundation of our strength as Christians. In light of that, we would ask you to join us for our several times of prayer. Saturday at 5:30 p.m., Sunday at 8:00 a.m. before our Sunday school begins and Wednesday nights at 6:30 p.m. during AWANA. Join us for prayer as we worship God and bring our requests before Him.

Church Directories are here! If you have not yet picked yours up, please do so today. They are on the welcome cart in the fellowship hall.

Superhero Academy: On September 23-25, kids (ages 3 – kindergarten) are invited to attend Superhero Academy and train to be a superhero for God! They’ll learn how God can give them superhero-like strength and courage to defeat evil and spread the good news.

Officer Mark Werts has been invited by our missionaries, Randy & Marleen Green, to participate in a short term mission trip to El Salvador from October 22nd-29th. If you would like to support the ministry of Officer Werts, please pray for him and consider giving financially. Mark needs to raise $1700 for costs of the trip and $1500 toward military grade tourniquets that will be given to the police officers trained in El Salvador. These tourniquets are about $28 each. The more money we raise above and beyond Mark’s trip cost, the more we will have to give towards supplying police officers with life-saving tourniquets. Thank you for your generosity and prayers.

The trip dates are: February 18th – March 1st.  If you are interested in knowing more, please contact Mark and Sheryl Farnsworth at 854-5123.

Hearing and Listening

Recently, one of our kids was in timeout for the way he was treating his sister, so I asked him to go tell his sister sorry and to give her a hug and kiss.  He gladly got up from the couch, apparently relieved that he was once again free, and merely yelled into the bathroom door where she was in mommy’s arms and said, “Sorry Bekah” and darted off.

 

My boy’s actions did not demonstra …

The Pastor’s Plea

 
Early last month we had the privilege of hearing Tim Hall preach Philippians 4:1-3.
 
Phil. 4:1   Therefore, my brothers, whom I love and long for, my joy and crown, stand
 
firm thus in the Lord, my beloved. 2   I entreat Euodia and I entreat Syntyche to agree in
 
the Lord. 3 Yes, I ask you also, true com …

you that they have rejected, but it is me that they have rejected as their king.”

Wings for the Weary

Wings For the Weary

“He gives strength to those who are tired; to the ones who lack power, he gives renewed energy. Even youths get tired and weary; even strong young men clumsily stumble. But those who wait for the Lord’s help find renewed strength; they rise up as if they had eagles’ wings, they run without growing weary, they walk without getting tired.”

—Isaiah 40:29-31

Riding Tandem with God through Like’s Struggles

    Several years ago when we found out we were expecting our first child John, Samantha and I took a “babymoon” trip to Mackinac Island in Michigan. Mackinac Island is unique because, with the exception of a single ambulance, there are no motorized vehicles allowed on the island. We spent most of our days walking the island or taking carriage rides and enjoying the warm summer breeze. However, one o …

Reconciling God’s Love and Wrath

A few days ago I shared the following verse on Facebook:

Exodus 34:6-7, “He passed in front of Moses, proclaiming, ‘The LORD, the LORD, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness, maintaining love to thousands, and forgiving wickedness, rebellion, and sin.'”

I shared that verse because one of the things I have run into quite frequently among friends, family and c …

New Year, New You

            As the New Year starts, this is the time of year when many of us are thinking about setting new goals. Reflecting back on the previous year might bring us a sense of gratitude for all that the Lord has accomplished in us. Or it might make us feel indifferent as we are uncertain of how meaningful life seemed to be. Maybe we did not lose that 10 lbs. we w …

Running to Win

Thanksgiving is now behind us and Christmas is straight ahead. I pray that you experienced rich blessings as you gathered together to celebrate God’s blessings in your life. For many of you, it was indeed a time of great blessing. Bellies were full, company was sweet, and traditions were a delight. However, for others, this may have been a time of great discouragement. Maybe your celebrations were not all that you lo …

Hold Fast: Clinging to Jesus in the Storm

Hebrews 10:23-25

23 Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, 25 not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.

Promises

We are in the midst of a season when political candidates make bid on specific promises in order to both garner support from their constituents and to build a strong base so that they might obtain or retain political privileges and power. In the coming months, we will only see this competitive furry increase within the parties. Yet, what is remarkable is just how much anxiety and frustration these seasons cause, …
