Sermon from Waverly First Baptist Church, Waverly, NY. This week's topic is Biblical Authority. Is the Bible true? Is it our guide for living?

Sermons from Waverly First Baptist. This week we look at another statement from John the Baptist. The gospel of John doesn't tell about Jesus' baptism, but it does include a time when Jesus came to John along the Jordan, and when John saw Him, he told the people, "Behold, the Lamb of God." We are going to look at that statement this week and see what it meant for the people who originally heard it, and what it means for us today.

Sermons from Waverly First Baptist Church, Waverly, NY. Last week, we read the climax of the Christmas story: Jesus’ birth and the visits from the shepherds and the Magi. You’d think it was all smooth sailing from here…They all lived happily ever after! But more disappointment was to come. We all deal with disappointments. The beauty of Jesus being “with us” is that he can fully relate to those feelings. No matter what we’re going through, we have someone who understands and still offers hope. The story isn’t over yet.
