Sarah Stewart Called as Pastor
First Baptist Church Oklahoma City calls Sarah Stewart as Pastor
On Sunday, October 21, 2018 the First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City voted to call Rev. Sarah Stewart as its senior pastor. Sarah will serve as the 19th pastor of the 128-year-old church and is the first woman to hold the position in the church’s history.
In her sermon on Sunday, Sarah shared her vision for FBCOKC. “This church, this place, when you walk in these doors, you will find people who are forgiven, healed, and redeemed. You are not required to clean up your life before walking in these doors. Come and find the hope that we have found in Christ alone. That is my dream for First Baptist Church of Oklahoma City. I dream of this being a place where we are all wounded healers. We take the hope and forgiveness we have received, and share it with a hurting and dying world around us. This is a place of second chances. This is a place of healing for the broken. This is a place where hope is possible.”
Sarah Stewart will officially assume the position of senior pastor on November 18, 2018. All are welcome to join us for a very special worship service in the dining hall to be followed by a Thanksgiving luncheon.
