First Baptist Weaverville


Welcome! 

Here at First Baptist Weaverville, the fellowship is warm, inviting, and casual. But we take our faith seriously. We want to grow as people—in faith, spirit, compassion, maturity, justice, and understanding. And we want to serve others. We care about ministering to each other, serving our community, and helping our world. We would love to have you be a part of our ministries and activities. We would hope to help you nurture your connection with God, and for you to help us make a difference in the world.

Know that we are here for you. If you would like more information about First Baptist Church Weaverville, or if there is an issue that we can be praying about for you, just let us know. Wherever you come from, and wherever you are in your spiritual journey, you are most welcome here.

“Come away from rush and hurry to the stillness of God’s peace;
From our vain ambition’s worry, come to Christ to find release.
Come away from noise and clamor, life’s demands and frenzied pace;
Come to join the people gathered here to seek and find God’s Grace.”

— from the hymn “Come Away from Rush and Hurry,” by Marva J. Dawn


Recently we celebrated our FBCW Sunday School teachers. We showed this video as part of the evening's program. Check it out to hear what some folks had to say about FBCW Sunday School! (And make plans to join us this Sunday at 9:45. We'd love to have you!)

Beliefs


Our basic conviction is “Jesus is Lord.” 

Ephesians 1:7-10 describes what this conviction means: 

In Him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace that He lavished on us.  With all wisdom and insight He has made known to us the mystery of His will, according to his good pleasure that He set forth in Christ, as a plan for the fullness of time, to gather up all things in Him, things in heaven and things on earth.

We believe that our life together is a response to God’s love, a love fully revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Jesus calls us to love God with heart, soul, mind and strength, and to love our neighbors as ourselves. He also calls us to love one another as he has loved us.

Because God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – is at work gathering up all things in Christ, we believe God calls together the body of believers.  Through the Church we covenant to be the sign to everyone of God’s purpose for the whole world. Such a daring conviction can only be lived out with humility and with continuing repentance when we fall short of that covenant.

We believe the Holy Spirit has come.  The new creation has begun!  Therefore, “there is no longer Jew or Greek, there is no longer slave or free, there is no longer male and female; for all of you are one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28).  Women and men are gifted to service by the Spirit.
