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.

Contending for the Faith

We live in a day when it is fashionable to attack the Scriptures, the
nature of God and Christianity. In the middle of all of these assaults,
there is rising a group known as “new atheists.” They are gaining the
attention of many in our society who do not understand the fundamentals of
the Gospel.

What separates these new atheists from old atheists is what is called
“objective morality.” Craig Hazen, director of Biola’s Christian
apologetics program, in the Spring 11 edition o …

More of Him, Less of Me

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in Us*

Near the end of John the Baptist’s life, he was confronted by some of the
Jews who asked him why Jesus and His disciples were baptizing more people
than John and his followers. John gave an amazingly succinct and insightful
response to their query, “He must increase, but I must decrease.” In one
statement John nailed the whole of Christian growth! Life is not about us,
it is about Him and about His work in us. The Apostle Paul, followi …

Change…or Pick Your Rut Wisely

*Evidencing the Reality of Jesus Christ in Us*

A few months ago I was frantically searching for my comb. You need to
understand that I have carried a comb in my back pocket ever since Junior
High School. It’s a habit. Whenever I have lost a comb I felt a little bit
undressed. Out of modesty I searched high and low for the comb. I finally
discovered the comb in my checkbook where it disappeared when I shoved the
checkbook in my back pocket. After I found my comb I thought, “This is

Intimacy with the Almighty: Evidencing the reality of Jesus Christ in Us

*Our vision is . . . To connect intimately with God, To connect deeply with
one another, To connect intentionally with people who need Christ. *Many of
us are great at playing “make-believe.” We go about our days with a happy
face. When people ask how we are doing our standard response is “great.” In
reality many of us are dying on the inside. We are tired, burned out, fed
up, sick of the rat race and sick of the expectations of others. We are
anything but “great.” Being …

Passionate Spirituality: Evidencing the Reality of Christ in Us

*Our vision is . . . To connect intimately with God, To connect deeply with
one another, To connect intentionally with people who need Christ.*

In order for this to take place we must be a people who demonstrate
passionate spirituality. My friend, Bob Humphrey states, “Passionate
spirituality is the trademark of people who frequently talk about Jesus and
celebrate His presence and Person with joy and enthusiasm. These
individuals take seriously their personal relationship with Go …

Genuine Worship

Some time ago a friend of mine said, “I don’t know if I have ever really
experienced worship.” This statement raises some questions and conveys a
number of thoughts.

– What is genuine worship?
– Worship is a concept that is difficult to grasp.
– Worship is often thought to be a feeling of exhilaration.
– Worship must be spectacular in order to be genuine.
– Worship is reserved for a very few on special occasions.

Some years ago I was privileged to attend a praye …

Spiritual Paralysis—The Fear of the Unknown

Many people fear change, for change creates unknowns. Change can make us
uncomfortable. But change is an inevitability in life. We’re born, we live,
we grow, we age, we die. Change is constant! As someone once said, “The
only thing that doesn’t change in life is change!”

I’ve observed in my own life that it is not the change itself I fear, but
the unknowns that accompany change. The fear of the unknown prevents us
from launching into new ventures . . . ventures that the Lord ma …

The Road Less Traveled By

Tis the New Year. A clean slate lies before you. How will you build on that
clean slate in this new year. Doubtless there are resolutions and changes
that need to be made. Things from last year that need to be improved.
Weight that needs to be lost, an attitude that might need to be changed, or
a relationship that needs to be improved. But this year I am presented with
a different kind of change, perhaps a less dramatic one but no less life
changing than any other resolution that I might …

The Cradle and the Cross

The Christmas season is a time of emotional extremes. Family reunions,
dinners, gift exchanges, giving, the joy of belonging, Christmas vacations,
bonuses, football games, the hugs and kisses from seldom seen relatives,
all bring great delight to many hearts.

However, this season is also the time of greatest depression and emptiness
for multitudes of others. Loneliness, fear, lack of care and lack of
purpose pervade many despairing hearts. Unfulfilled expectations dominate
the landscape …
