Welcome to First Baptist Church!

Maybe you are thinking about visiting a church for the first time. Maybe you're a Christian who recently moved to the Stoneham area and are looking for a new church to call home. No matter what your situation, our mission at FBC is to provide you with opportunities to meet God through worship, prayer, study, and service.

Reuben Job reminds us of the opportunity during the Advent Season.

“The Season of Advent gives the church the opportunity to begin again. Once more the full story of God’s grace is awaiting our discover. Once more we get to listen and respond in faithfulness to the God who comes to us so humbly, intimately, and personally in the birth of Jesus. Advent initiates once again remembering, retelling, and celebrating the whole drama of God’s revelation. Advent confronts us once again with God’s unparalleled effort to communicate the message that all humankind is embraced and held close by a God of love. Jesus Christ has come, is present with us, and will come again in final victory when all darkness, pain, and evil will be no more. In Advent we begin again to try to make plain the wonderful truth of the most extraordinary good news the world has ever heard. Soon we will join the angelic chorus in singing, ‘Christ the Savior is born.”’ From, A Guide to Prayer for All Who Seek God by Rueben Job

The world tells us to buy the right present, get in the right spirit, and/or fill our schedule with events. This season our theme is “Getting Ready for Jesus”. Jesus is the one who makes our lives worthwhile and meaningful in any season. God wants to give his greatest gift. Will we be ready to receive Him? Worship, devotional reading, gracious good works, and prayer are good ways to get ready.
