As Pastor and Undershepherd of our congregation, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to our church. On behalf of our members here at First Baptist, it is our prayer that each of us, being united in Christian fellowship and faith, might grow in the knowledge and love of God, constantly striving to grow more fully into the likeness of our Lord Jesus. May our fellowship in Christ bring more of His Spirit into your personal lives, into your homes, into our community, and into our nation.
On behalf of the elders and deacons, the officers and members of our church, we extend our warmest welcome to you. We pledge to you our affection and care, our sympathy and prayer, our support in whatever way possible-all of these after the manner of our Savior's abiding love.
In His Name,
Stephen C. Lovelady
