40 Days

Although FBC’s official 40 Days of Listening & Reflection has come to an end, our prayer is that you have established the habit of spending time listening and reflecting on God’s Word every day!  Keep up the great work!

40 Days of Listening & Reflection

Pastor Mike has been leading us through 7 Marks of Discipleship over the past few months.  We have covered GENEROSITY, PRAYER, WORSHIP, COMMUNITY, SERVICE, EVANGELISM, and  SCRIPTURE.  Hebrews 4:12 tells us that God’s Word, the Bible, is “living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword,” and spending time in it will change your life!  Join us as we embark upon a wonderful journey to engage the New Testament together during FBC’s 40 Days of Listening and Reflection experience.
Click HERE to get started. Complete the online questionnaire.  This will help us to have all the materials ready (journals, Bible sticks, CDs, etc.).


Then download the BIBLE.IS app on your smart phone or tablet by visiting Google Play or the App Store.  Visit www.bible.is/getapp for instructions, or contact the church office for technical assistance.  Choose the English ESV Dramatized version, unless there’s another translation you’re particularly interested in. To listen online, visit www.faithcomesbyhearing.com.  Set your goals, consider how reflection works best for you, and commit to attend a group meeting.  You’ll get out of it what you put into it, so let’s prepare ourselves to receive a blessing!


Access the electronic tool that was created specifically for First Baptist Church for the purpose of documenting your personal reflections. Visit www.40daysoflistening.org on your personal computer, tablet, or smart phone.  Register to get started.  Additionally, paperback journals are available for folks who choose to record their thoughts with pen and paper.

Life can get hectic.  There often doesn’t seem to be enough hours in a day to get everything done.  It can be a battle trying to find time to dig into the Word and spend time reading.  That’s why Pastor Mike will introduce us to using technology as an additional way to experience the Bible.

Faith Comes By Hearing offers a smart phone/tablet app and a plan to listen to the Bible in audio form.  Whether you’re stuck in traffic, waiting to see a doctor, or on a treadmill at the gym, listening to Scripture daily can help you stay connected to the life-giving Word of God.

As a Body of Believers, we will have an opportunity to join together and spend 40 days of listening to the Bible and reflecting upon what the Holy Spirit reveals to us through His Word.
