Who We Are...
First Baptist Church exists...
To honor and glorify God by obeying Jesus' command to make disciples of all people groups. We believe in one God who is the Creator and Sustainer of all things. We accomplish this through our Mission and Core Values.
People Reaching People to Become A Living Example of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Philippians 1:27 ~ "Only conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or remain absent, I will hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel"
Standing on Biblical authority (1 Thessalonians 2:13)
Reaching our community and beyond with the good news that Jesus saves (Luke 15, 19:10)
Teaching believers through the Bible how to love God and love their neighbors as themselves (Col. 1:28; Matthew 22:37-40)
Sending those believers back out into the world to share with others the story of how Jesus saved them (Rom. 10:13-15; Acts 1:8)
