For nearly 9 years, our church has gathered in the Uptown neighborhood of New Orleans. During that time, God has richly provided for all of our needs. Now, God has provided an opportunity for our church to purchase our own building. NOLA Baptist has entered into a purchase agreement with the New Orleans Baptist Association (NOBA) to purchase the Valence Street Baptist Church (VSBC) building located at 4636 Magazine St. for $559,000. The purchase agreement was signed on March 21, 2022 and will expire July 19, 2022.
We believe that Jesus has opened a door for us with this property. As he says in Revelation 3:8 to the church in Philadelphia, “I know your works. Behold, I have set before you and open door, which no one is able to shut. I know that you have but little power, and yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
Though our church is small and we have “but little power,” we keep his word and we hold fast to his name. Our confidence is in the power and sovereign will of Jesus, who opens doors that no one can shut. Being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, we look with expectant hearts to the future this door opens to. It does not open to a restored building. It opens to a people, whose lives have been restored by the power of the gospel and who now worship and live for Jesus!
