Pastor’s Welcome Message

It is a joy to welcome you to the web site of First Baptist Church of Earlville, New York!
Our church motto is “Inviting and Accepting”.  Did you know that God is “inviting and accepting”?  He sees sinners as hungry and unsatisfied (Ecc. 3:11; John 4:13,14), and thus “without God and without hope” (Ephesians 2:12).   And to a lost and thirsty world, He sent His Son, the Lord Jesus, to shed His blood and give His life for those hungry and unsatisfied sinners.   Have you received Jesus as your Savior?
Our church motto is put into practice in many ways.  The Sunday School for all ages with its many yearly outreaches,  our worship service (along with special services throughout the year), and teen ministries are all designed to encourage and train hearts right where we are.  Through the Bargain Basket Thrift Shop, the Food Pantry, Cub Scouts, and many monthly outreaches hearts are touched where they are.
“Inviting and Accepting” – I invite you to be “accepted in the Beloved” (Ephesians 1:7), and then be overwhelmed where God can use you to encourage others that they, too, can have a Savior Who alone is worthy to be trusted today, and for all eternity!
May you find in our web site those encouragements you need for today as you are seeking the Lord, and seeking a good fundamental church to call your church home!

Pastor Jeremy Stopford
