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.

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, …

Preparing Your Horse For Battle

Prov. 21:31 A horse is prepared for the day of battle,
but the victory is from the LORD.

I love verses like this one because it is a reminder of two important facts
about success in life.

First,

As individuals we have a tremendous responsibility to prepare for battle.

Especially, in Christian circles there is often this notion that if we want
to be successful, then we need to pray mor …

Transformation through Suffering

Recently, my wife and I have been trusting the Lord for the sale of our
home in Dallas. Sometimes we find ourselves wondering why it hasn’t sold
yet. Are we going to miss the market? Will we be OK financially? There are
a thousand thoughts that can consume us if we let them.

The truth is that in light of the world’s problems, our problem is small.
And our God is bigger than we can imagine! Yet, we know that God cares
about our concerns no matter how large or small they are.

You and …

Great Faith

Great Faith
by Jeremiah Krieger

Back when I was in college I had the tremendous opportunity to listen to
some of the best and brightest minds of Christianity during our chapel
service at Liberty University. While sitting in the seats three times a
week, I often wondered how the likes of Jerry Falwell got to be such
spiritual giants of their time. These people of great faith were
untouchables to me. Great faith, to me, seemed nearly unachievable and
distant.

Often, this is the same feel …

Transitions

*Transitions*

*The Inevitable Cycles of Life*

Transitions are an inevitable part of life. Beth and I have been reminded
of that truth just this Christmas. All of our children and grandchildren
gathered together with us in Holyoke. We enjoyed a tremendous time of
fellowship, joy, reminiscing and eating. Our family experienced a wonderful
season of family!
Beth and I used to play the role of parents. Now we play the role of
grandparents. After two of our children and their crew departed f …
