We exist to love all people to Christ and equip them on their journey with God and one another. We believe Jesus Christ is the hope of the world and the church is His plan for sharing that hope with the world. Every week, from the First Baptist Owasso, we explore the Word of God to strengthen our faith, draw near to Him, and deepen our love for one another.
Chris Wall • 1 Peter 1:1-2 ESV
The Bible is clear; Jesus does not keep us from tough times or difficult circumstances. God is big enough and always faithful to walk us through every chaotic situation we will face. From 1 Peter, discover proven ways God has given us to navigate the complexities of our world. God is faithful. His promises are always true. Because of His grace, your life is TRANSFORMED.
Chris Wall • 1 Peter 1:3-9 ESV
When Christ saves us and then grows us, so many blessings come our way. We have a hope that is living. We have strength and purpose through trials. And, there is no more fear in death. For every believer, our last day on the earth will be the day we receive the goal of our faith. That will be the day we cross the finish line experiencing seeing all that salvation means in real-time. The challenge is to live today with the end in mind...
Chris Wall • 1 Peter 1:10-12 ESV
Salvation is so magnificent. It has been passed from generation to generation. We have a responsibility to do the same. In fact, our responsibility is so very important, the angels in heaven are actually envious of us. How cool is that?
Chris Wall • 1 Peter 1:13-16 ESV
God is faithful to prepare us for tough times and challenging circumstances. Faith in Christ comes with a call to the frontlines of the spiritual battle. One of the reasons we don’t go to heaven right after coming to faith in Christ is that we have work to do. Thriving in #themissionlife is impossible without the pursuit of holiness. Today, lean into how the Holy Spirit helps you live a holy life.
Chad Balthrop • 1 Peter 1:17-25 NKJV
It doesn’t seem fair. The food that tastes the best is bad for us. The things we want to buy are more than we can afford. The life we’ve always wanted seems just outside our reach. Yet God reminds us. There’s more to this life than this moment. Every minor decision paves the way to monumental mistakes or builds memories that tell a story you can’t wait to read again. By the grace of God, your life has been transformed...
Chris Wall • 1 Peter 1:22-25 NIV
One historic mark of a follower of Christ is showing love for one another. When we put God’s word into practice, it looks like patience, kindness, selflessness, and forgiveness. God brings His body together so the entire world will hear His voice and experience real hope in life.
