Welcome to Gretna Baptist Church We are a fellowship of believers committed to building strong relationships within the church and community - creating an atmosphere for people to discover, grow, and model their faith in Christ.
The most important period of the year for Christians, often called Holy Week, begins this Sunday. The biblical account of Palm Sunday can be found in Matthew 21:1-11; Mark 11:1-11; Luke 19:28-44; and John 12:12-19. It is a celebration and remembrance of Christ’s death and resurrection as related in the Scriptures, culminating on Easter Sunday.
Holy Week begins with Palm Sunday, which commemorates Jesus’ entry into Jerusalem with his disciples to celebrate Passover.
The Bible reveals that about 2,000 years ago on what we know as Palm Sunday, the city of Jerusalem had a very special visitor. He had been in the city many times before, but this time He presented Himself in fulfillment of Zechariah 9:9.
Not everyone welcome the Lord Jesus with enthusiasm (Luke 19:42-44), but there are those who did. Jesus, the Messiah, the King of Kings, was made to feel welcome, especially by his disciples.
The people sang part of Psalm 118 - ...Blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord. Blessed is the coming kingdom of our father, David. ... (Psalms 118:25-26).
Immediately following this great time of celebration in the ministry of Jesus, he begins his journey to the cross. Join us Sunday as we prepare our hearts to celebrate the most powerful week in Christendom and welcome King Jesus!. ... See MoreSee Less
It’s easy to be spiritually smug and let pride enter into our lives. We all want to be appreciated for our gifts and devotion. Sadly, it is this small seed of pride that often grows into a spiritual arrogance that can drive people away from the church.
The Bible is clear that we must seek to impress God alone. Spiritual humility requires a self-audit of our motives. Motives matter when it comes to being approved and rewarded by God. Simply put, we must do the right thing for the right reasons.
