Message from our pastor

Churches are many things to different people. Some are drawn to the church because a friend already attends. Others especially like the social aspect--getting to know an interesting variety of people. Still others look to the church as a place of love and acceptance, or as a place to serve--using one's God-given gifts and talents.

Certainly, the church is many different things to different people. The love, fellowship, and acceptance are generated by the relevant preaching and teaching of God's Word. This, in turn, creates an atmosphere of praise and prayer. All of this together makes for a worship experience that will promote spiritual growth in the Christian's life.

As Pastor, it is my prayer that First Baptist Church of Oakland Park will be all of this and more to you, your family, and your friends. Come and visit us soon. God bless you!

Dr. Merlin Berkey, Pastor
