“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.” Matthew 5:14
Since 1907, God has been using First Baptist Church to spread His love in Junction City. Almost 11 years ago, we followed God by stepping out in faith to build and move to our current location. Since moving into our new building, we have seen God transform more lives and spread His love throughout the county in powerful ways.
Today we are embarking on the next chapter of our journey. We believe God is calling us to shine His light more than ever. We have the light of Christ in us and we are on a mission to light up Junction City, Lane County, and the world in His Name. To see this happen, we believe we must invest in our future generations and our city that they may passionately KNOW, SHOW, and SHARE Christ’s love.
Over the next few years, we are stepping up to Fortify in Faith (Phase 1) the blessing we have in our current building. We are in the midst of this phase currently and are aiming to finish it by December 2022.
Then, we will look toward Blessing the Future(Phase 2) generations through an activity center that can be utilized by both our youth and the community. Finally, it is our hope to Bridge the Blessings(Phase 3) by creating a welcoming space connect to the building for our staff and those they shepherd.
1) Pray: We serve a big God "who is able to who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine" (Ephesians 3:20-21). As a church, we are trusting Him to provide all we need to fulfill the mission He has called us to. Please pray for our leaders, our future, and that Christ's love would continue to be known in everything we do.
2) Pledge: Please prayerfully consider how God might work through your generosity to help see God's Kingdom grow in our community. We are asking the entire church family to find the unique response God has given each of us to make. This effort cannot be accomplished by just a few donors. Rather, we hope to involve every family and member of FBCJC in this endeavor; we are all stewards of what God has entrusted to each of us.
