Make The Connection  

      The invitation is all yours!  What a blessed invitation at that!  You are standing, so to speak, at the front door, and with your hand it’s about to open.  What’s inside?  Come on in and you will find that from our homepage you can access any page of this website and find that something special from the Lord awaits your visit.

     It’s all about family– God’s family– laughing, loving, and sharing the joy of the Lord that He has put in us as we desire to serve Him and do the work of ministry, and we want it to touch your heart.  I hope that as you visit our website you will feel the fellowship of excitement!  It’s here, it’s sweet, and it’s very real as we are captured in these images and videos, meeting to worship and holding forth the Word of Life.  So, as you look at all the images, all the events and gatherings, all the moments and ministries from the children to the youth and to the adults—we want you to feel the connection because God created us for connections, and the most important connection is at the cross.  The bridge God has built to us, to reach us, save us and love us is with an everlasting love.  He wants you to make that connection most of all.

     Sometimes we sing, “Blessed be the tie that binds our hearts”.  That tie is the cord of love that is laced throughout our lives and lies within the pages of this website.  Come now, make connection, begin the fellowship with Hindman First Baptist Church, make the connection with God’s love, and it will tie you to Him.  Please, if you don’t have a church home, we invite you to be a part of us.  The cord is strong and the love is real and that connection is for you.  Join us!  May God richly bless you.
Bro. Mike Caudill

Youth Pastor

     “Impacting the world for Christ, one student at a time” is the theme of Hindman Student Ministries (the Middle School, High School, and College Ministries of Hindman First Baptist Church).  HSM is committed to equipping students with the truths of God’s Word in order to change the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

     As the pages of this website unfold, it is our prayer that you will experience the clarity of that mission.  From service projects to mission trips, from our weekly meetings of teaching and proclaiming the truth of God’s inerrant Word to just hanging out and enjoying  each other’s company, everything that happens within HSM takes place for the sole purpose of bringing glory and honor to God the Father, by exalting God the Son, through the leading of God the Holy Spirit.

     Students are much more than “the church of tomorrow”; they are part of the church today.  Therefore, we refuse to neglect any student who walks through these doors willing to grow in Christ.  We will devote our time and our efforts to seeing lives changed, souls saved, and God glorified in all that is said and done here.  If you or someone you know desires the opportunity to grow in Christ, we would love to have you as a part of what God is doing in our midst.

In His Grip,
Bro. Steven Bell
