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 Fullness of the Believer


So many things in life disappoint. We often have great expectations, but so many expectations are faulty, empty, and powerless. We are left feeling disappointed, sometimes crushed.

Many have faith in earthly religions, but apart from Biblical revelation, all religions eventually disappoint.

Sometimes, things preached in local churches disappoint as far as true blessing and satisfaction are concerned. For example, it is often stated that if one just gets busy for God, his life will prosper. There may be some truth in that thought, but the fullness of God does not come just because one does “good things” for God.

Good works are a very important part of our Christian life, but they are the result rather than the cause of what we do for God.
