Jeff Henderson, Lead Pastor of Gwinnett Church and creator of the FOR movement, often says, "Many people are more familiar with what the Church is AGAINST rather than what the Church is FOR." No wonder 6 out of 10 people in Jones County do not attend church. They don't feel like "church is for them because the Church isn't FOR them."
First Baptist wants to change that by being FOR Jones County (#4JC). That means we are FOR Jones County Schools. We are FOR our businesses. We are FOR adults, students and children. We are FOR people. The reason we are FOR people is because God is For them.
He even tells us that in the most often quoted verse in the Bible.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
