Hey Everyone,

The greatest thing that can ever happen in a church happened this Sunday with Raymond Hill being saved and born again. This is what Jesus’ mission was all about and the main theme of the cross and redemption. We are going to have Raymond’s baptism as soon as possible; we want to make a big deal out of this as the church because even the angels in heaven are celebrating.

It was so encouraging to see a good crowd this past Sunday while knowing we had some regulars gone. We will give you more details about how we are going to replace VBS sometime in August. I have been working with Rosemary, and I think we have a great plan.

Love you all!

For His Glory,


Sunday’s Sermon Title: Real Worship Part II

Scripture: Ezra: 4

June 3, 2020

Hey Church Family,
I cannot tell you how good it was to see everyone this past Sunday. I also recognize we had many regulars that were not there as well, due to the current circumstances. It is so good to have people worshipping together. This is what the Bible calls real Biblical fellowship. It is a shared experience that can only happen when people are together. Social media is good for certain things, but it can never replace the human element.
Be in prayer for who God has in mind for the next Worship Pastor and Outreach Pastor. These are not just slots to fill, but ministries that are vitally important to the overall advancement to God’s Kingdom.
I also want to say to the Jackson family and all those related to them, we are so sorry for the passing of Eddie Jackson. He was still so young, and had accomplished so much heading up important research in hospitals and Universities. Let us pray for his family and God’s comfort for them through the power of the Holy Spirit.

For His Glory,

First Live Service

Good Afternoon Church,
I am very excited about having our first live service this Sunday. We have people sitting in every other pew, and we will put offering plates in the back of the church instead of passing them around to everyone. The church is going to be sanitized this week and then the regular cleaning team is coming in to clean this Friday. So, we are doing our best to have the cleanest and safest place for you and people who may visit.
I am starting messages over the next twelve weeks in Ezra and Nehemiah. These books in God’s Word will teach us about rebuilding. To get the right answers, we must ask the right questions. Ezra and Nehemiah address the physical and spiritual aspects of believing, loving and experiencing God to the greatest degree. The same God that blessed these men is the same God that can bring Revival in our church and community. I look forward to seeing you Sunday.

For His Glory


May 20, 2020

Hello Church,
I just want to remind everyone that we will begin our live music and service Sunday May 31st but no Sunday School that day. I will continue to do the Wed. night videos for those who may miss the mid week Bible Study. I would love to have you here because we have a lot of questions and discussion. But if you cannot make it on Wed. night, the video will be posted that afternoon.
We are not sure about VBS yet? We are waiting to see how things evolve in the community because we want to have as many kids here as possible. So, the date is still up in the air? I will be meeting with some of the leaders to discuss possible ideas as what we are going through plays out. Please know I pray for you all daily.

For His Glory

From the Pastor – May 17, 2020

Hello Church,
I hope and pray everyone is doing ok. We will continue to do what we have been doing on Sunday for May 17th and 24th. However, because the mandate from the state has been lifted, if you would like to attend those Sundays we will accommodate everyone with the social distancing. We will begin our live music and service on May 31st, but no Sunday School that day. I do understand everyone has their own time table of coming back. The leadership of the church understands and we will eventually get back to normal as possible. We will meet downstairs for the Business meeting at 6:00 and the Bible study to follow if time allows. I will be meeting with the deacons at 7:00pm. I really look forward to seeing everyone again!

For His Glory

April 5, 2020

Hello Church Family,
I was just outside talking to Mr. Carlton, and I asked him if he had ever seen anything like this virus in all his years. And he said no,” but I trust the Lord”. I said, “Amen, I trust Him as well.”

This is not the way I expected to start here at First Baptist Vincent, however, it is what it is, and we will make the best out of it.  There are a lot of things I do not know, but I know God was not caught by surprise.  Nothing has ever “occurred” to God or “caught him by surprise.” He is sovereign over all.

The Lord has established His throne in heaven,
And His kingdom rules over all.” Psalm 103:19

 We just need to be responsible and follow the laws of the land (Romans 13) and I will be putting out the Wed. night teaching on facebook (video). We will continue to Facebook live Sunday morning worship until we can meet again.  Praying for you all!

For God’s Glory,

Pastor Robbie
