Our hope here, as the family at First Baptist Church of Keenesburg, CO, is that all visitors feel at home and welcome to worship the LORD JEHOVAH.Isaiah 12:2 KJV "Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation."
Our hope is to enable the Holy Spirit to move in the hearts of all who hear the gospel message of peace and respond to His calling to repent and call on the name of Jesus for salvation. Romans 10:13 KJV "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved."
Our multiple family Bible classes allow us to grow closer to Lord through the practical application of God's Word and prayer. II Peter 3:18 KJV "But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and forever. Amen."
We would like to welcome you to learn more about what we believe and why we give God the most honor, glory and respect we are able. Colossians 2:7 KJV "Rooted and built up in him, as ye have been taught, abounding therein with thanksgiving."

Our belief is that God called and ordained Pastor "Mac" to further God's Kingdom through the ministries at First Baptist Church of Keenesburg, CO. Jeremiah 3:14 KJV "And I will give you pastors according to my heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding."
