People come to the Keys for many different reasons. Most are looking for rest, relaxation, or a fresh start. The scriptures tell us that ultimate rest and peace can only come through the Gospel. The truth of God’s love and grace is the only thing that truly bring peace in life. We were created for relationship with our Creator God.
First Baptist is simply a community of people that gather together to know God and do life together. We need each other. God made us for relationship. Our structure is simple as well; Worship service, small groups, and service/missions. We are here to equip you to be the church. The Church is people, not a building. As you are going to schools, meeting with neighbors, or just living day to day, be truth and life. We exist to help accomplish that.
If you visit us for the first time, Sunday morning is a good place to start. We gather for a light breakfast at 9:30 and split into age appropriate smaller groups for Life Groups at 10:00 A.M. Sunday morning worship begins at 11:00 AM. You can expect a friendly, laid back atmosphere, with a high value placed on worshiping God and growing in the Gospel. We read scripture, pray, and learn from the Bible. Musically, we play hymns we grew up singing and modern songs. Most the time we sing along with a band and singers, but often times we change things up so we do not get into a rut. We do not want cooperate worship to become “vain repetition”. God is doing great things at First Baptist Big Pine. Come grow with us!
