Spring Greeting

Solomon 2: 11- 12 11   See! The winter is past;the rains are over and gone. 12 Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land

The snow is melting and the dirt is showing. The street cleaners are removing the sand and the gardeners are turning up the soil. Why? It is all for hope. Even though right now it looks like a barren wilderness they believe in a few weeks all things will be bright with cheerful flowers, fragrant blossoms and sunshiny days. I am thankful for people like that. It is they who see past the wilderness and remind us of better days ahead.

Some of you might be walking through a wilderness of your own. Perhaps your marriage, your job, your life feels like a wilderness. It is cluttered with past mistakes, dirty of past sins and you are burdened with a bleak future. There is hope! Jesus came to guide us out of the wilderness and bring us to the garden. He is a Master Gardener. He will clear away the debris of your past and plant seeds of hope, faith, and a glorious future. Just ask Him! He likes to plant hope.

"Building Futures on Jesus"

WELCOME to First Baptist Church North Bay
I am greatly honoured to pastor this wonderful congregation that Worships God, Loves each other and Reaches out to the world with the love of Jesus. This is a Bible based church with Jesus Christ as the Head.

We are known affectionately as the “Church on the Rock” because of our elevated location on the Cambrian Shield on Cassells Street. It is an appropriate name because our foundation is on Jesus Christ the Rock.

Isaiah 26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, For in GOD the LORD, we have an everlasting Rock.

I preach the bible verse by verse so that we can discover together the whole counsel of God and become stronger followers of Jesus Christ.

I encourage you to read our Church Covenant.

It is a beautiful promise we have given to God and to each other. You are always welcome to come and worship with us!

Blessing, Pastor Wilbert
