About Us

OUR MISSION 
Sharing Christ & Building Believers
 
OUR VISION
First Baptist Church strives to be a community where, in Christ, 
we pursue a better way to live, where outsiders seek to belong,
and where everyone is equipped and encouraged
to fully trust Jesus and serve Him.

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 Time

Prayer is the foundation of our strength as Christians. In light of that, we would ask you to join us for prayer Sunday at 8:00 a.m. before our Sunday school begins. Join us for prayer as we worship God and bring our requests before Him.

What’s Next? Moving Upward

*What’s Next? Moving Upward*

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in us to the World*

Years ago a fourteen-year-old lived alone with his father. His mother had
died and life was not easy. His load of chores increased significantly. One
evening as they were preparing for supper, his father said, “Son, go out
and bring in a load of wood for the cook stove.” The lads temper boiled
over and he stormed out the door. His parting shot was, “I can’t take all
this work any longer. I …

Passing the Torch: Raising Next Generations’ Leaders

On the sixth day of Creation, God commanded his Adam and Eve to “be
fruitful and multiply, fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the
fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing
that moves on the earth.” Adam and Eve were born to reproduce.

That is also true of all the creatures and all plant life. Everything
reproduces after its kind. We see this in all creation. What is the purpose
of a rose bush? Some might say, “To make beautiful roses.” That is …

An Eternal Perspective

Some time ago I read an article in Kindred Spirit magazine. As I read the
article, my eyes were constantly drawn from the article to a photograph in
the bottom right hand corner of the page. It was a picture of a mom tossing
her little girl into the air. It was a great picture of the love and joy
that passes between a mom and her young daughter.

However, as I looked more closely at the picture, I could vaguely make out
a mountain range in the
background. As I looked further I discovered …

Rocking the Roles

Shortly before Steve Jobs died, he asked a rhetorical question, “Why were
we able to build the I Pad and other companies could not?” His response was
something along this line. “It is because we have a work climate that
allows people to be creative and successful. Other companies do not!” This
was a profound statement and a profound insight.

The same question could be asked of churches. Why do so many churches
struggle while others thrive. In many cases the answer to the question …

Isolated or insulated?

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in Us to the World *Rick Warren in
the 40 Days of Purpose speaks to the difference of being isolated or
insulated. Rick gave a great illustration of what it means to be insulated.
Rick loves to eat swordfish. Swordfish live in the ocean. The ocean is
salty. Yet, when he eats swordfish, he has to salt it before he eats it.
Why doesn’t the sword fish taste salty? Because the swordfish is insulated
from the salt. This is the principle of insulation …

Life Fulfilled

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in Us to the World*

It’s New Year’s Resolution time. I’ve never been much on resolutions.
However, I would like to challenge us to continue to live out our vision:

To connect intimately with God
To connect deeply with one another
To connect intentionally with those who need Jesus Christ.

When all the dust has settled after our lives are over, the question will
not be, “Who has the most toys,” but, “Who knows the Lord and who has
served …

Oh Come Let Us Adore…Me? (Not Really)

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in Us to the World*

Some years ago a friend called us after Christmas. She asked, “What can I
do with my kids? They are so greedy and thankless. This year when we opened
presents, the kids, who were completely surrounded by a mountain of “stuff”
and an avalanche of wrapping paper, looked up and said, ‘Is that all?’”

These kids exhibited a character trait that affects all of us from time to
time. We often think the world revolves around us. …

Thanksgiving: An Acceptable Sacrifice to God

Thanksgiving—a wonderful concept that finds its roots, not with the
pilgrims, but in the Scriptures. Thanksgiving is a natural consequence of
our relationship with God! Included below are several passages that give
reasons we should be thankful. Ponder the truths of these passages and
respond appropriately.

Psalm 50 teaches us that we cannot truly offer the LORD anything that He
already possesses. The cattle of the field, the birds of the mountains, and
the goats of the fold all belon …

In the World, but not of the World

The Christian life is full of tensions and the need to reconcile seemingly
contrary truths. There are many theological tensions—things we cannot
grasp, yet key doctrines we must accept by faith! These would include, for
example, an understanding of the Trinity or the relationship between the
sovereignty of God and human free will. There are other tensions that
relate to our Christian living. One such tension is the concept of being
“in the world, but not being of the world.” The Lo …

Congregational Care

*Monday Morning Meltdown *

It’s Monday morning. The pastor slips into his study . . . broken, defeated
and exhausted. He sits down at his desk and stares into space. What could
possibly have gone wrong? He loves the Lord and wants to serve Him by
serving God’s people. He has served and has given freely of himself.
However, no matter how much effort he exerts, no matter how many things he
accomplishes, it’s never enough. On Sunday morning, one of the families in
the church critici …
