At First Baptist Church Sweet Springs, we have a simple hope: to see people know the love of the Heavenly Father, grow in identity with Jesus, and go into the world in the power of His Holy Spirit.
When people come to knowledge of the love that God has for them, they recognize their position as His son/daughter. Our church longs for people to see this and to assist them in that pursuit to grow in the knowledge of God and their position in Him. Finally, we long to join with them in their journey to go commissioned by the Lord to be a light to all nations. For 150 years, we've been helping spread God's good news here in our hometown and throughout the world and we pray that God will continue to use our congregation to be those messengers for many years to come.
Whether you've been attending for years or have never stepped into a church building, we hope you'll come and join us Sunday. When you come to join us for the first time, one of our greeters will be glad to help assist you in where to go. If you'd like, they'll help you find the nursery (which is fully staffed and safely run), or the sanctuary before the service begins.
During our Sunday morning service, you'll hear our faith expressed in the songs we sing, the teaching of our Pastor, and our prayers for one another. Our service grounded in the Word of God, which we are committed to upholding. At First Baptist Church Sweet Springs, we believe that the foundational Truth of God's Word is paramount to understanding our relationship with the Father. It is the standard by which we long to live our lives.
After the service, please stay for a bit and give us a chance to get to know each other. Say hello to our pastor and anyone else you see. We'd all love to hear your story and share ours with you. No matter what your background is, we hope you'll join us on Sunday. Our services start at 10:45 a.m. every week.
