Welcome to First Baptist Church

First Baptist Church is located in Ventura County, in the heart of Camarillo. Our church is a fellowship of believers in Christ who meet regularly. Above all, Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior. We use the Bible as our authority in all aspects of life. We believe that the power of the gospel can change lives as we come to Christ and accept Him personally and His payment of our sin.
 
We are glad you visited our website and hope it gives you an idea of the ministries we have at our church. We are here to help you come to know Jesus Christ personally and grow in your faith if you are already a believer. Now that you have learned a little about our church, come visit us during one of our services and get involved in some of our ministries.

Devotional Post of the week:

Ps. 137:2 “We hung our harps upon the willows in the midst of it.” (Have you ever felt like hanging your harp on the willows? The people of Judah did as the Psalmist recounts. They had been taken from their homeland, their homes were destroyed and loved ones killed. Their captors in Babylon demanded a song but they could not sing they were in such sorrow. Their instrument of praise and joy was useless. They hung their harps up. Their song was dead or so it seemed. The music had stopped, the future was bleak and all hope was gone of anything turning out right. Now the very people who caused their grief wanted a song. It was just too much. It seemed as if they would never sing again. The song had disappeared. They could not sing in this imprecatory Psalm. They had hung their harps up.
The music may have stopped and be faint but it will come back if the Lord is in our life. Job 35:10 says that He gives songs in the night. No matter how dark the night there is always a song. It will come back, it will be constant. We may not feel like singing, our worship may be dimmed but the eternal God will always give a song.
The hymn writer expressed this thought perfectly when he wrote:
There is never a day so dreary, There is never a night so long, But the soul that is trusting in Jesus Will somewhere find a song. Wonderful, wonderful Jesus, In the heart He implanteth a song: A song of deliverance, of courage, of strength, In the heart He implanteth a song.
If Jesus is your savior he will give you a song. Something He implants will never be uprooted. With the help of God’s people, His word and His church there will always be song that will never go out.)
