Do you need some newness in your life? New purpose? New hope? A new start? God wants to make you new. He makes the dead alive. He makes the hopeless and forgotten full of new life and purpose. Your burdens and struggles don’t have to weigh you down any longer; through the power of Jesus’ sacrifice and resurrection, you can receive freedom and experience all things new through Him.
2 Corinthians 5:17: “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.”

Night Of Worship
6:00 pm in the Worship Center
“…He took the cup…saying, ’This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.’ For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until He comes.” — 1 Cor. 11:25-26
Begin Easter week with the BPBC Worship Ministry as we gather for a night of worship and remembrance as we look to the Cross where Jesus’ blood was shed to cover our sins.
Living Out Loud from the Inside OutSunday, May 4 at 6:00 pm
Kidz Praise Spring Musical
Join our Kidz Praise Children’s Choir at Live Out Loud Academy where they will learn how crucial it is to live in God’s ways and not the ways of the world. Classmates will discover that reading God’s Word, listening to the Holy Spirit, and connecting with other believers is the way to live out loud! God’s truth changes us from the inside out, and Jesus is the greatest example of living from the inside out in this upside down world!
“What You are after, Lord, is truth . . . from the inside out!” – Psalm 51:6
