Welcome to the Warners Bay Baptist Church website. We, the church, are glad you have taken the time to have a look at the web site and would like to invite you along to one of our church services.
We are a Baptist church that has about 70-110 people attend on a Sunday morning. Our congregation has a mixture of young families, middle aged people and older people.
Our services are contemporary in style with a band leading the music portion of our worship service. Within our worship services we also have prayer, Bible readings and someone talking about how the Bible relates to us in our world today. Our services are structured and the people are relaxed and engaged in what is happening.
“Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vine, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Saviour.”
Notice how courageous the faith is of this writer. He has experienced abundance in the past, but now he is suffering loss and insecurity and it is his faith in God that sustains him. When we have worked hard for the things we value are then taken from us, we need to run towards God, not away from him.
Philip Doddridge says, “Although the above verse is very concise, it nevertheless implies or expresses the following thoughts of the writer: that in this time of distress he would flee to God; that he would maintain his spiritual composure under the darkest of circumstances; and that in the midst of everything, he would delight himself with a scared joy in God and have cheerful expectations of Him.”
God knows our struggles!!! Find joy and rest in your Father in heaven particularly when life is tough going.
These steps of trusting God, through faith, will help us to grow as people God has designed us to be, not self-reliant, but increasingly Christ reliant. To grow in your experience and knowledge of Christ, you must come to the point of trusting him in every aspect of life.
Grow in the Lord, by trusting in Him with the details of life.
