First Baptist Church

Connecting People to God, to Others, and to Service

Website: http://www.fbchendersonville.com

If you are searching for a place to call home you can find it at First Baptist. Known for a focus on the Word of God, solid Biblical preaching, and heart-lifting music, First Baptist Church is the place for you to connect to God. The most basic teaching of the Bible is that God cares about you. He loves you and He wants to have a relationship with you. As incredible as it may sound, the fact is that the Creator of the universe wants to connect with you. He loves you so much that He left heaven and came to earth as Jesus Christ and went to the cross to pay the price for our sin. He did all of that because He wants to connect with us.

The most basic element that ties us together at First Baptist is that we have accepted His plan of connecting. We have trusted Jesus Christ as the Savior of our lives and have committed ourselves to follow Him. The Bible is our guidebook. The Holy Spirit is our encourager. The church is our meeting place. The world is our mission field.

Connecting people to God, to others and to service.

Our desire at First Baptist Hendersonville is to help you connect.

We want to help you connect to God through meaningful worship and by being prayerfully dependent upon God.

We want to help you connect to others by providing opportunities to interact with a community of believers who love Christ and who love people.

And we want to help you connect to service by discovering how God has gifted you and then giving you opportunities to use those gifts.

How to Live Sent

According to Dr. Amy Sherman, there are at least 4 ways to Live Sent:

1. Bloom where you are planted.

Care to help build the Kingdom right where God has you assigned in the marketplace?

2. Start something new.

Do you have a passion for addressing an unmet community need? Consider forming  either a for profit or nonprofit company and start something new.

3. Give your skills (vocational) away to a community ministry.

Is there a community ministry that could benefit from your vocational skills and talents?

4. A Church Big Vision for the City.

Does your church have a Big Vision for the City? Do you have one and want to encourage your church to consider helping you to develop it?

Jerry's Message

The purpose of Living Sent Ministries is to inspire and equip business and professional leaders to live out their Christian faith. It is about "Connecting Sunday to Monday". A core principle of Living Sent Ministries is that God gave you your business or job (vocation) to build the Kingdom.

Invest in the Kingdom


Colossians 3:17, NIV: "And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him."
