First Baptist Church is an independent Baptist congregation.

We strive to be loving and obedient disciples of Jesus Christ and to make new disciples of Christ in the Woodville area and around the world.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
9Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
10Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
11Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore! 1 Chronicles 16:8–11 (NKJV)

A problem all people deal with from time to time is the problem of discontentment. We don’t like the circumstances of our life and we strongly desire something different. This was a problem for the nation of Israel in their journey through the wilderness.

First, we read, “…and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. And the people spake against God, and against Moses, ‘Wherefore have ye brought us out of Egypt to die in this wilderness? For there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread’” (Numb. 21:4-5). True, life was not easy nor very pleasant for them in the wilderness. Still, God was angry with them and the result was anything but pleasurable.
