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 Building of A Christian Life


A Godly, spiritual Christian life is not automatic because one is saved nor is it in any way accidental. It is, instead, by a process of growth and obedience to the word and will of God. Yet, sometimes, we assume maturity when, in reality, there is little or none.

The purpose of this study is to consider some of the false standards of spiritual maturity and then to look at some of the things  God is seeking to build into each person’s life who truly knows and loves Him.

What, then, are some of the things we may assume for spiritual reality but which fall far short of God’s standard?
