Welcome To FBC Van

  Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty.  First Baptist Church is here for you. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King.  We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together.   May God richly bless you!
The Pepper Family
Larry Pepper was on a trajectory. He was a NASA flight surgeon who was good at his job, active in his church, involved as a dad—and possibly headed for space. It wouldn’t be long before he ended up as a candidate finalist for a space mission. But God interrupted his plans. As Larry thought more and more about his life and its eternal significance, he felt God saying, “You’ve committed everything to me except your job.” It soon became evident God was drawing him to walk away.
December is the month for educating ourselves on foreign missions.    This month, please be prayer for our missionary families and give so more will come to the saving grace of Jesus!  
Please follow the videos found on the IMB website to see how our Lottie Moon offering sends missionaries around the globe to bring the gospel to the ends of the earth! 
We had a fun time decorating the
Sanctuary for the Christmas Season!
