Grafton Baptist Church - "You are the light of the world...." Matthew 5:14
Thank you
for your online visit to
Grafton Baptist Church!
 
Here at Grafton Baptist Church, our mission is to go and reach all people and to personally care for them by leading them into healthy growing relationships with God and others.
 
Our desire is to reach those not attending church anywhere and to welcome them into our church family.

We want to help the hurting to heal, the lonely to find friendship, and those who do not know the love of Jesus to meet Him in an intimate and personal way.

Have you ever felt this way?
Read and see if this doesn’t apply to you…












“ …I don’t understand myself at all, for I really want to do what is right, but I can’t. I do what I don’t want to - what I hate. I know perfectly well that what I am doing is wrong, and my bad conscience proves that I agree with these laws I am breaking. But I can’t help myself because I’m no longer doing it. It is sin inside me that is stronger than I am that makes me do these evil things.

I know I am rotten through and through so far as my old sinful nature is concerned. No matter which way I turn I can’t make myself do right. I want to but I can’t. When I want to do good, I don’t; and when I try not to do wrong, I do it anyway. Now if I am doing what I don’t want to, it is plain where the trouble is: sin still has me in its evil grasp.  It seems to be a fact of life that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong.

I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me! In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin.

So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free! “
 
Well, I know for a fact this is describing me beginning to end. Who wrote these words?  The Apostle Paul of all people!  Want to learn about it? Join me on Sunday, Nov 19 as we discover who we are, how we struggle daily and that of the gracious God that stands by our side day in and day out. 
 
By the way, if you have that friend that seems to always beat themselves up about their “sins” this is the Sunday to bring them.  Also, we were missing a lot people on Sunday so, if you noticed a family member or friend who wasn’t there, give them a call, send a text, or message them.  Let them know they are missed and we would love to see them this Sunday. 
 
Your Imperfect, but Passionate Pastor!
