Lively Hope Baptist Church

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which according to his abundant mercy hath begotten us again unto a lively hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, (1 Peter 1:3)

Lively Hope Baptist Church of Coleman is a New Church plant located in Coleman Texas. It is our humble desire to see the Gospel of Jesus Christ preached in Coleman and surrounding counties and to establish, by God's grace, a fellowship of believers who truly desire to "walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called, With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love; while Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace' (Eph 4:1-3). We are an "Independent Church" which unashamedly proclaims salvation by grace through faith, in the tradition of historic Christianity: where Scripture remains the sole authority for all faith and practice; where earnest contending for the faith is exercised without being contentious; and where Christ's glory is sought in all we say and do!  We warmly invite you to come and worship with us.

Scripture of the Week

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:  The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.  Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

John 3:1-3

Quotes of the Week

The Sovereign Power in Our Salvation:

Methinks worldly wisdom should rather wonder that any one is won unto God, than cry out and complain, "Is it possible there should be so few?" since all the powers of darkness, and every devil in hell oppose, might and main, the implanting of grace in any soul; since there are more snares upon earth to keep us still in the invisible chains of darkness and sin, than there are stars in heaven; since every inch, every little artery of our bodies, if it could, would swell with hellish venom to the bigness of the greatest Goliath, that mightiest giant, that it might make resistance to the sanctifying work of the Holy Ghost; since our souls, naturally, would rather die and put off their immortality and everlasting being, than put on the Lord Jesus;  in a word, since the new creation of a man is held to be a greater work of wonder than the creation of the world.

- Robert Bolton, "General directions for a comfortable walking with God", pg 4

Ps 42:1-2: "As the hart panteth after the water brooks, so panteth my soul after thee, O God.  My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?"

 

On Ps 42:1:

 

As after a long drought the poor fainting hind longs for the streams, or rather as the hunted hart instinctively seeks after the river to lave [wash] its smoking flanks and to escape the dogs, even so my weary, persecuted soul pants after the Lord my God.  Debarred from public worship, David was heartsick.  Ease he did not seek, honour he did not covet, but the enjoyment of communion with God was an urgent need of his soul; he viewed it not merely as the sweetest of all luxuries, but as an absolute necessity, like water to a stag.  Like the parched traveller in the wilderness, whose skin bottle is empty, and who finds the wells dry, he must drink or die -- he must have his God or faint.  His soul, his very self, his deepest life, was insatiable for a sense of the divine presence.

- Charles Spurgeon
