Are you tired of living life on your own? Are you hungry to live life on purpose? We all have a spirit which hungers for the four basic needs: We desire knowledge, a sense of community, freedom from guilt, and a sense of eternal legacy.
At First Baptist Church of Bethalto, we believe in Jesus as the only way to truly fulfill these needs (John 14:6). Join us as we discover together the Good News of Jesus Christ: No other worldview offers together a Father God, a Savior God, the gift of salvation by Grace, true equality, the promise of eternity, and the promise of resurrection.
We're about more than gaining religion or getting to Heaven. We're about falling in love with our Maker and carrying each others' burdens. Together, we strive to love God with all that we have and to serve our neighbors as ourselves (Matthew 22).
Search Team Update:
07.16.15 - The search committee has reviewed 40 resumes. We have narrowed the search to two strong candidates. After much prayer and communication ,we believe one of those candidates is stronger than the other. He fits well into the profile that we developed. We have had much communication with him including 2 Skype sessions. We have interviewed 3 of his references. Since he is out of state, we are thankful that today's technology allows us the ability to view videos of him conducting worship. Our next step is to send some of the committee to be with him in a live worship setting. We are planning this in the very near future. Trusting the Lord continues to lead us to him and him to us, we will be sharing more detailed information very soon. The committee has had unity and harmony during this search. Thank you for your prayers. Keep them coming!
