We aim to reach the world with the Gospel of Christ to as many people as possible. Of course, in person, we would love to worship with you and your family every Sunday at our church in Plainview, TX. But we know that is not always possible. We also know our guests would like to check things out before showing up in person, and this is a way to do that. Here are a couple of things that would help us out. If you are a guest, please use the text-in-church feature (Text Howdy to 806-855-8533) to let us know you are here watching. If you are a regular attendee, please help us continue sharing the Gospel weekly by giving your tithe and offering. This helps us keep on, and you become a team player with the church and the online production team. This last part is super crucial for the kingdom of God. Pray about asking two people weekly to attend church in person or online. You will be amazed how God moves with something as simple as a friendly invitation. Thank you in advance. We love you here at First Baptist Church, Plainview!
