Johnston First Baptist Church is a congregation of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ who are united in the Holy Spirit for the purpose of proclaiming the praises of the One who called us out of darkness into His glorious light. We are the body of Christ, redeemed by His blood, and our goal is glorify our Heavenly Father in all that we do.
People have questions. God has answers, and those answers are found in His holy Word. In Scripture the Lord describes Himself as the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. He says, “I am the One who is, who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.” We can trust what the Lord says from beginning to end.
PAST: The Bible tells us where we came from, where the earth and universe came from, where life came from. God has given us His perfect, eyewitness, sovereign account of history leading up to the greatest act of love ever: the death of His Son on the cross for our sins. He has declared unto us His glorious resurrection from the dead and His ascension to the exalted right hand of the Father.
PRESENT: The Bible tells us what our true problem is: sin. The answer to that problem is salvation, redemption, forgiveness, justification, and it is all received by putting our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He saves us by His grace alone, gives us His Holy Spirit, and empowers us to live a new life of love that honors the Lord. The Bible says that God has given us all things that pertain to life and godliness. God’s Word is totally sufficient and adequate to address every need and issue in a person’s life. The world has no answers; God has all the answers.
FUTURE: The Bible tells us where we’re going. Believers in Christ need not fear the future. God has spelled out in His Word what will happen in the last days and the great triumph and glory we will share in His Kingdom. The Gospel truly is “Good News.”
