This church has gone through a lot of changes since the previous reviews. Good changes. If you are interested in a Biblically-saturated, gospel-centered, transformational, and joyful community of believers you MUST visit this church. The elders, and pastors and very open with members and visitors alike about their positions, church finances, and the vision of the church. Moreover, everything is posted on the church web-site so I recommend that you check this out before you listen to my opinion or the opinions of others about what this church is like, concerning its preaching. You would do better visiting in person because words can't describe the people there. The church is ethically and age diverse, the worship is a great hybrid of traditional and contemporary christian music, it has a great AWANA program, with strong child protection policy to keep children safe. They really value small group communities called growth groups and this is where church members minister to each other.
Obviously no church is perfect, this one included. People sin and the church is comprised of sinners saved by grace. I believe this church does its very best to be all that God desires in his bride. I am very sad that I cannot continue going here as I am moving but now I know what to look for in a church.
This is not a church filled with perfect people! However, this church has it’s fill of members who are being transformed into the image of Jesus Christ. First Baptist Church of Boynton Beach, among many other things, has a high dedication to teaching the Bible, and provides many ways for a follower of Jesus to grow. This church is full of members with great stories and life lessons of Jesus’ transforming work in their lives, which makes this church a wonderful place for anyone to invest their time, talents, and life (much to the contrary of one commentator). If anyone comes to this church with a true desire to see the risen Christ; I know they will find him. God has protected and provided for this church, and though they do not always do the best job of showing this in their worship, but they sincerely worship God as Jesus said they should; “in Spirit and Truth”. Come to First Baptist Church of Boynton Beach to “Taste and see that the Lord is good”!
To the pastor Buzz,
I noticed that the pastor started with what seems to be a good message, but in no time I realized that I am beginning to get distracted and find it difficult to follow what he says, then the message was lost , not because of me but because the pastor takes little part of the message and keep going through exceplaining little dedails and his theory that bores every one then the whole message gets lost , and feel that I had enough and need to get out of the church,
Hay pastor buzz , please concentrate , finish giving the message first then go around
it as you wish , may be you need to tell stories to keep the people interested and to prove your message , you need to be humble and listen to some advice from the people , beside you need god to help you making your message succesful to get to every one.
next I noticed the band is very loud , and I do not like to lose my ear drums.
We like you and wish you great success , it is the closest church to me and I do not like to travel one hr.to go to a nother church.
The below reviews are unfortunate and misleading. This church is absolutely amazing. They have a new pastor who joined the fellowship in February 2010 who is all about growing together as a body of believers in love and unity and sharing the Gospel to the surroounding community. The music is Christ-center, with a mix of hymms and worship music. They have a strong AWANA ministry for the younger kids on Wednesday night. Highly recommend that you try this church and hear the Good News of Jesus Christ.
i can only speculate that the previous individual(s) who posted either had an ax to grind, or were themselves carnal unbelievers unfamiliar w/God and the true things of God. I say that because 1st B. (for any true believer) is an absolute shining example of a true church of God, led by godly leadership, attended by (largely) genuine, loving, spirit filled Christians who worship (in both in music and preaching in Spirit and Truth. Anyone who likes the Biblically sound and alive preaching of modern day men like MacArhur,Piper,etc and men of the past like Spurgeon and the like, will be very much at home at 1st B. Anyone who is just looking to be told they're doing fine, even in the face of their ongoing, willful sin, will likely have an experience similar to the earlier posted emails. the music is at 1st B is reverent, and the preaching is powerful and accurate in ways that are very rare today in the church!
I visited this chuch for awhile to see if it would be a place of worship for my wife and i we have been christians for many years.(20)
I found the people to be cold and closed off from gods real truth,(fake).
The worship songs were ok but as i watched the people sing they lacked
joy from the spirit and they had no depth in there voices.
The Pastor at first seemed to have scipture down ,but his messages are
to critical and although i didnt realy know him,ive meet many other pastors so I can tell he had some issue with personell pride and as one other reveiw put it" its his way or the highway"
For those of you looking for a sound,well balanced church this is not it, may god bless your efforts in finding one.
Believers looking for a spiritually healthy congregation should avoid this church like the plague. The "pastor" has no seminary training and no prior ministry experience. He is morally dishonest and deeply prideful. His preaching is also incredibly discouraging. You will definitely leave feeling God's displeasure at the fact that you haven't prayed enough or read enough scripture every day. Oh, and God's also not too happy that you don't have family worship time every day. It is basically a legalistic, fundamentalist church - and many people have left. Maybe a nice place to visit if you can endure the preaching, but please do not invest your time, talents, or life in this church.
the pastor talks like it is his way or the highway.... he discourages people from leaving the church, and every service is a 'downer'. there is no encouragement here. the music is almost non-existent. there are too many slides behind the pastor with a creepy voiced man speaking. not a friendly church, but a place where you feel guilty and all around bad - even if you have been a strong christian you're whole life! the pastor also speaks badly of other pastors from the pulpit, coming across that only his way of preaching is the right way. it is a free country and we have free will to attend any church we want to. only God can see your heart. a pastor should not guilt you into staying at this church or question your salvation if you leave....
beautiful house of the Lord - the cross behind the preacher is so beautiful ... however, the music is so so so loud ... there is a disconnect with the people ... the main person to deliver the message seems to be the minister of music - taking away the show like a rock star - when the pastor comes up the the pulpit he shows slideshows ... very high tech operation ... again, a disconnect to the knees on the alter and an actual heartfelt invitation to come to the Lord - people leave as fast as they can ... could be a great place of worship ...
