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

Faith will tell you to have patience when everything else is telling you to panic.
Faith will tell you to hold on when everything else is telling you to let go.
Faith will tell you to push forward when everything else is telling you to pull back.
Having faith isn't about making sense; it's about making your heart open and available to the voice of God.

Weekly Message From The Pastor

Unexpected Blessings

 

Have you ever been engaged in your normal routine when all of a sudden, the Lord stepped in and blessed that situation beyond your wildest dreams? I like to call those instances the times of unexpected blessings.

 

God’s blessings come in all shapes and sizes. He loves to bless His people! I have found that knowing God more intimately is one of the best blessings of all.

 

All too often we try to box God into our idea of what we want him to do. More often than not, it is based on a tradition that is rooted and grounded in something that we have created for God to live up to based on our own expectations. God is not to be bound by our expectations or how we think that He (God) ought it move. If we do, we run the risk of missing a blessing because it didn't come the way we expected, from whom we expected, how we expected, where we expected, or when we expected. 

 

We serve a God who is only bound by our lack of faith. In order to receive God’s blessing of grace, mercy, healing, favor, etc., we have to be in His will as well as his presence. To get access to unexpected blessings, we have to look with faith, with unbridled expectancy, to our God from whom all blessings flow.

 

An even greater point is that we should look for opportunities to be used by God to provide unexpected blessings to others, over and above someone providing us with unexpected blessings.

 

Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,

Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen. (Eph. 3:20-21, KJV) 

Blessings! Pastor George
