THE First Baptist Church of Red Bank, NJ


A FIRM FOUNDATION is a sermon based on 1 Corinthians 3:10-14, and addresses how a person can continue to grow and renew him or herself in the Lord.

Growth comes from health and health comes from balance.

What is keeping me from growing?

Every church is directed by some force.

A Biblical alternative: Become a Purpose Driven church!

Matthew 16:18 -

And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.

Proverbs 19:21 -

Many are the plans in a man's heart, but it is the LORD's purpose that prevails.

Five phases of renewal:

1. Personal

2. Relational

3. Missional

4. Structural

5. Cultural

Church attendance alone does not equate Spiritual Maturity.

Proverbs 18:15 -

The heart of the discerning acquires knowledge; the ears of the wise seek it out.

Galatians 6:9 -

Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.

It's not about us! - Psalm 34:8

Taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

Are you ready to build?
