Springs Worship Service at Boiling Springs First Baptist Church

We would all like to live on spiritual mountain tops. The truth is: we live in the valley and times can be tough. The book of 1 Peter was written to give believers hope in tough times. The Apostle Peter gives us reasons to praise God for the living hope we can have in Jesus Christ.

Memorial Day Worship Service from Boiling Springs FBC

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.” Hebrews 12: 1-3
