Faith should be defined as "awe in the face of mystery." Good films lead us further into this mystery and help us experience "awe." For the second year, First Baptist is partnering with the Wayne Theatre by sponsoring six spiritual encounters (i.e. films) exploring their religious questions in order to see them a resource for Christian growth.

Make plans to join us for a 'pay what you will' experience and stick around for panel discussions that give voice to the mystery and majesty of finding faith in film.
