Below is a communication in light of recent events in Zeeland:

The tranquility of our neighborhood was disturbed recently by a small group of protesters carrying signs containing vile and offensive messages. It is reported that the protestors told at least some people that they were acting on behalf of our church. This is not the case. The protestors absolutely do not represent our church in any way. They are not from our church, nor are they acting on our behalf. They alone are responsible for the content of their message. With malice toward none, but charity toward all, First Baptist Church of Zeeland seeks to teach the unchanging truths of God’s word. God declares in His Word that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. But God commended His love to us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. As sinners who have received forgiveness and new life through faith in Jesus Christ, we joyfully invite other sinners to experience God's grace and cleansing.
