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)

The Taste of Death

Death! The very thought of the word brings a chill to one’s being. Perhaps this is the reason men have tried either to avoid the subject or to dress it up so as to remove the fear. Neither approach is satisfactory. The subject of death cannot be avoided. The reminders of it are everywhere present. We are reminded of it by the incidences of disease, accident, murder, suicide, old age and many other things. Neither can death be dressed up to make it something other than it is. Eventually, the reality of it must be acknowledged and dealt with.
