Welcome To Basket Creek Baptist Church

We sincerely welcome you to join us in praise and worship here at Basket Creek. We are a church where everyone is family and everybody is somebody. We are dedicated to building growth, knowledge and faith in God. We believe that without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him (Hebrew 11:6 KJV). If you are looking for a church home or in need of prayer, please join us in fellowship as we worship together in the holy spirit.

Inspirational Quote

Easter is the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus from the tomb on the third day after his crucifixion. Easter is the fulfilled prophecy of the Messiah who would be persecuted, die for our sins, and rise on the third day.

Weekly Message From The Pastor

Ecclesiastes 4:9 says, "Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their WORK (labor)." This is not speaking of your work to earn money, but the work you put into the relationship. Yes, you have to work at the Marriage, to keep the harmony, and make compromises, but it will pay off for whatever you put into it, you will get a good return. It will be a good investment. 

Here are 7 Ways to Keep God in the Center of Your Marriage:

1.    Love God first before your partner. Strengthen your personal relationship with God.

2.    Pray for each other. Pray together.

3.    Study God's Word together.

4.    Ask God to help change your bad attitudes. You don't need to change your personality in a healthy relationship. It should motivate you to change bad attitudes though. Apart from cheating, pride is blamed on many broken relationships - one of the spouses or both find it difficult to admit errors and apologize first. Only God can help us change, so ask Him to help you put what the Bible teaches into practice in your life and relationship.

5.    Remember, the same God who made you, also fearfully and wonderfully made your partner. When/if you are tempted to compare your partner with someone you think is better, or you would like him/her to be somebody else, stop and take the time to love your partner for who he/she is because he/she is loved and special to the Lord, just like you are.

6.    Serve God together.

7.    Treat one another with grace-just as Jesus treats you. Putting God at the heart of your relationship does not make you perfect, your partner, or your relationship. However, it teaches you how to gracefully treat imperfections — which means not easily giving up on the marriage just because of challenges.  If you are hurt, forgive just like how God forgives you and be willing to give second chances.

Faith does not just believe that somewhere out there God exists. Faith is believing in a God who is real and here for us, in whom we entrust our heart, soul, body, and mind. Whatever hardships we face, if we turn to God in good and bad times, asking for His help and that he fills us with His love, and then respond consistently to each other in unconditional love, our marriage will be a success. When we move in that "God-kind of Love," it never fails to turn the situation around for good.

Blessings! Pastor George

Verse Of The Week

For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

 John 6:38-40 KJV
