First Baptist Church exists to honor God by making more disciples and bringing people closer to Jesus Christ.
We focus on these five purposes:
Worship is focusing on God. It is giving Him the love and respect that is due to Him as Lord and Savior of our life. We do this through singing, praying, teaching, baptism, serving, and the Lord’s Supper. Worship is both an individual and a corporate experience.
Ministry a main goal of the church. Our desire is to see people using their spiritual gifts and talents for God in a constructive, positive way. There is a sense of fullfilment when people begin using their gifts and talents to serve the Lord and others. Tied in with this are assimilation classes where both evangelism and discipleship, along with ministry preparation, take place.
Evangelism is reaching out to the community with the love of God. To carry out this vital part of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we use various ways including our Sunday School gatherings, bridge events that connect with the community, small groups, senior adult ministries, children’s programs, and sports to name a few ways we attempt to reach out.
Fellowship describes the goal of our church to be a place where people feel cared for and can build relationships with others that will enhance and transform their life.
Discipleship focuses on helping people develop and grow spiritually in their walk with God. To help accomplish this, we offer Sunday School classes for all ages, life-development classes, a women’s Bible study, and personal one-on-one discipleship.
