Life’s greatest question
Do you know for certain you will go to Heaven when you die?  Or would you say that's something you're still working on?  One thing you can know for sure is God loves you!  God's Word is clear—either you will spend eternity with God or suffer eternal separation.

God wants you to spend eternity with Him
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:16-17).
The main thing

The starting point for Cowan First Baptist Church is Jesus. Our hunger is to know Him and share His love with those around us.  We invite you to know Him and know what it means to be forgiven and truly follow Christ.  Life is full of demands, conflicts, struggles and tough decisions.  Meeting those challenges takes strength, and that strength can only be found in Jesus Christ, and we unashamedly proclaim Him as Lord!  That's why we like to say that CFBC is a great place to belong, filled with loving people ready to welcome you.  We look forward to seeing you this Sunday!
