First Baptist Church
We seek to be loving and obedient disciples of Jesus Christ and to make new disciples of Christ in the Woodville area and around the world.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen.”
Pastor Dennis Tapp
I’ve been involved in church ministry since I was a teenager. I loved being at church and just helping out. In our church the young people were regularly challenged to consider full time ministry, “to be willing” to do whatever God wanted us to do. Well, I was willing to do anything but be a pastor and stand in front of people and preach.
I was honestly terrified of such a possibility! The battle raged in my soul until I finally surrendered to that possibility as a Senior in High School. The only logical thing to do then was attend Bible college and Seminary to receive training for ministry. The door never closed to the pastorate, it only opened wider as time moved on. God in His patience and grace has led me into full time ministry time and time again. I couldn’t do anything else; His Sovereign hand has chosen me to be an under-shepherd. So, with all my heart I seek to serve Him and work at keeping my heart surrendered to Him.
