4BYA is a web portal that pertains the Fourth Baptist Young Adults.

Our objectives are to:

  • Glorify God: “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31)
  • Equip believers: “for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Ephesians 4:12)
  • Herald the truth of the Savior (the Lord Jesus Christ): “woe is me if I do not preach the gospel!” (1 Corinthians 9:16)
  • Faithfully participate in the life and ministry of our Church: “To the saints and faithful brethren in Christ who are in Colosse” (Colossians 1:2)
  • Build effective Christ-honoring relationships by obeying the one another commands.

Our ministry is integral to and under the auspices and authority of the leadership team of Fourth Baptist Church.

Jim Peet biographical:

I was born in Fort Wayne IN, August 19th, 1949. When I was 11 our family moved to Delhi Ohio. I graduated from Oak Hills High School in 1967 and from the University of Cincinnati in 1971. I’ve worked for Wells Fargo Bank in technology since 1994. Kathee and I were married in 1974 and we live in Plymouth, MN.

About the photo of Niagra Falls:

The photo is a cropped (904 x 160 px) aerial photo of Niagara Falls. The Niagara River is one of the world’s greatest sources of hydroelectric power. I selected this image because when I think about “power” I think of Niagara Falls. Power is a key word in the book of Ephesians. The ultimate demonstration of God’s power is in the resurrection of Christ (Romans 1:4). This power, the power of His resurrection, enables the Christian life: “Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us” (Ephesians 3:20).

A larger image of Niagara falls is available here.
