We all have a great need.  Much of our lives is spent trying to fulfill that need in us.  Whether we truly know it or not, this great need is of a savior, and only Jesus satisfies it.  We are hungering and thirsting for Him, but we often try to satisfy ourselves with other, lesser things and this leads to unfulfillment.  Only Jesus meets our need.  Only He can truly satisfy.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, March 5, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Lousiana.  Thank you for listening!

We have no better model for being a disciple than Jesus Himself!  In this sermon, Lifestyle of Joyful Discipleship, Pastor Greg focuses on the narrative of Jesus' ministry to find Him merely going about the work God has called Him to do.  By looking at Jesus' action, we find a perfect model for us in our own discipleship. Jesus was a disciple everywhere He went, not eshcewing the brokenness of others, but counting it all joy to follow God.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 22, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

When Jesus called the disciples to follow Him, He called them to a reckless abandon of discipleship.  In this sermon entitled, For the Sake of the Call, Pastor Greg examines the scene in Matthew 4 by asking four questions of the situation.  These are four questions that can come to our mind when we are considering our own call to follow Jesus.  Why doesn't Jesus do everything Himself?  What does Jesus see in us?  Why should we follow the call?  What is the responsibility of the called disciple?  This teaching was presented on Sunday, January 15, 2017.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

Perhaps there is no better outward mark of the believer than the practice of generosity.  In this continuing sermon series, Practicing Presence, Pastor Greg takes us to I Corinthians 8:7-12 to explore this very important but oft-forgotten virtue of the believer.  We learn generosity from the generosity of Jesus, who, though He was rich became poor for us.  Through His example, we are called to live generously, to give generously, and to believe generously.  This teaching was presented on Sunday, September 25, 2016.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, Louisiana.  Thank you for listening!

During our annual Student Day service, Rev. Micah Collins spoke about the need for obedience to God's call on our lives. Using the unquestioning call of Matthew to follow Jesus, found in Luke 5:27-28, as a starting point, Brother Micah teaches us that obedience saves us and sustains us in our walk toward Christ-likeness. Brother Micah challenges the students to be obedient to Christ but he also challenges us to reach out and be obedient in our relationships to the students and ensuring that we support and encourage them in their Christian walk.

This sermon was preached on Sunday, May 3, 2015. This podcast is part of the teaching ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, LA. Thank you for listening.
