Welcome to First Baptist Church

What's New

Pastors Corner - Dr. Kevin Waldrop


  If you were unable to join us 2 weeks ago, we started a series in Romans that will take us through Chapters 12, 13, &14.  The title of the series is, “Living Out Our Faith”. We know we are to live the Christian walk in our daily lives but the question is how? The last two weeks, we focused on verses 1-8 of Romans 12. Sunday's  sermon will pick-up with verses 9-13.  We will be looking at True Christian Behavior, Part One.   

  My hope is that you will join us this Sunday morning at 10:30 am.  If you are a member of FBC already, looking for a Church home, or just a place to worship if you are passing through Hobbs, we would love for you to join us for worship and encouraging message. 

   We still have 2 weeks left to get in on our annual offering for the State Missions Offering.  This year's them is, There is still room for more.  All the funds given during the month of September go toward NM Missionaries and state funded ministries.  Oct 9 is the deadline for giving to this opportunity. 
 We also are accepting items listed below for our Fall Food Drive for the NM Baptist Children's Home in Portales NM.  Every year, the state divides up each convention to meet specific needs.  See below for the items we are responsible for.
