Pastor Paul's Perspective


Loving the Local Church Like Jesus Does

This Sunday, October 13, we will be wrapping up our series on the "Membership Agreement".

Our focus this Sunday will be on:
I agree to stay connected to my church.

In a day of a declining church, fewer people are staying connected.

Consider some sad statistics on the local American church:


The Importance of Connection

This Sunday, October 6, we will be continuing our series on the "Membership Agreement".

So far, we've looked at:
Week 1 - I agree to protect the unity of my church.
Week 2 - I agree to pray for my church.
Week 3 - I agree to serve in my church.
Week 4 - I agree to support my church.

This week:  I agree to get "connected" with my church.

This idea of being "connected" can be illustrated in a number of ways.


The Human Support Structures

This Sunday, September 29, will be Week 4 of a 5-week series on the Membership Agreement of WPBC.

This series is about the responsibilities and expectations of the members and partners of this church.

As members/partners, we agree to:

1. Protect the unity of our church.
2. Pray for the ministers and ministries of our church.
3. Serve the individuals and body of Christ in our church with our own gifts.

This Sunday:


I Feel His Pleasure

1 Peter 4:11
If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

Please read that again.

As we speak . . . 

As we minister (serve) . . . 

"in all things God may be glorified . . . "

This Sunday, September 22, we will be continuing our series on "Membership Agreement". What are the responsibilities and expectations of the members/partners of WPBC?


What Jesus Was Passionate About

There is something impressive to me about passion. About caring deeply for someone or something.

It honestly drives me bananas to see people go through life without passion. Living as though they don't care about anything. Living as though life happens - no big deal.


And How To Help The Bahamas

Hello Hurricane Survivors!

Once again south Florida was "in the cone" and then "out of the cone", and we survived.

Let me be a little introspective about storms. As we faced another possible natural disaster along the east coast of Florida, my mind went wandering. Again . . . 

As we "hunkered down" watching the feeder bands and wind squalls out my front window, I found myself thinking about what I've learned from storms over the past 24 years of living in Florida. Here are a few of my thoughts:


Family Expectations

Lord willing, we will begin a new 4-week series this Sunday, September 1, about expectations for the members of West Pines Baptist Church. These "expectations" are part of the membership agreement that is signed by those who have become members here. This week we will be looking at Agreement #1: "I agree to protect the unity of my church." 


Tapping Into The Help Jesus Promised

This Sunday, August 25, we will be wrapping up our summer series on Seeing Jesus. As we study the life and minstry years of Jesus (only 3 years), we see His heart for people on display. We have seen His investment in the men who followed Him as His disciples, His love, His compassion, His ministry mindset of serving others, His commitment to the truth, and His answers for life's greatest challenges. It's been a great series.


Or, How To Get Inducted Into the Hall of Fame

Each summer in Cooperstown, New York, the Baseball Hall of Fame welcomes in a few new members to a very exclusive club. The Baseball Hall of Fame is a place reserved for the best of the best. Only those who accomplished something special are part of the museum in Cooperstown. People who make it to any "hall of fame" are special people who excelled in something.

The Bible has its own "hall of fame". 


Guest Blog by Pastor Jordan

2 Samuel 22:18-20 says, “He rescued me from my strong enemy, from those who hated me, for they were too mighty for me. They confronted me in the day of my calamity, but the LORD was my support. He brought me out into a broad place; he rescued me, because he delighted in me.” 

A lighthouse is a tower designed to radiate light and to serve as a navigational aid for boaters and captains at sea.  The lighthouse is used to mark off dangers that may be unseen on the coastlines, such as hazardous shoals, reefs, or rocks. The lighthouse can also be used to provide safe entry back into a harbor from a treacherous storm.
