A building for God

FBC renovations almost complete 

 

By JOE GONZALES

For the past nine weeks, there’s been major work going on inside of the First Baptist Church of Littlefield.

Pastor Tanner Wilson will tell you all the work done inside of the church was much needed, and he’s excited about it, but what he’s more excited about is – spreading the Word of God and seeing what the work can do to those who attend their church.

“Central to our church is Jesus, and presenting his Word and worshiping his name,” said Wilson. “We just want to do that the best way we can, and at the same time, we wanted the church be more beneficial to everyone.”

First Baptist Church was built in 1952, and Pastor Wilson said there had been no major changes since then.
