We at First Baptist Church love having guests visit with us but we also know that visiting a new church can be intimidating. We hope that the information provided on this page will help you get to know us better and that you will come away encouraged to visit with us soon!

Our Purpose

Our mission statement as a church is to lead all people into a transformed relationship with Jesus Christ. We are committed to the person of Jesus Christ and rejoice in the message of the cross, namely, that anyone can be forgiven through faith in Jesus Christ and restored to a personal relationship with God. We are motivated by the belief that the Bible is written by God, authoritative, and sufficient and consequently believe and preach the whole Bible. The Word of God has direction and answers to help us develop Christ-honoring lives and meaningful relationships. 

Transformational Principles That Guide All Of Our Ministry:

  1. The goal of transformation is to become more like Jesus Christ – 2 Corinthians 3:18; Romans 8:29; Galatians 4:19; Colossians 1:28-29; 1 John 3:2
  2. God alone is the producer of spiritual growth and vitality – 1 Corinthians 3:5-7
  3. Transformation is a process – 1 Corinthians 3:1-15
  4. Transformation at FBC is a fourfold process:
    1. Believe: Transformation begins by turning from your sin and trusting in the Lord Jesus Christ. It continues as you train yourself for godliness through personal Bible reading, prayer and obedience.
    2. Worship: Corporate worship fuels transformation. Through engaging worship people are thrust into an environment where a growing and intimate relationship with God is the primary concern and where they are refueled and strengthened to be effective disciples wherever they might scatter to. Church is about going out, not just gathering in. Yes, we want church to be packed on Sunday but then we want it to empty out, empowered and transformed to make Christ-like impact on the community.
    3. Grow: We believe fellowship as called for in the New Testament is more than eating food together and does not happen as we see the backs of each other’s heads in the pews. As a result, we seek to accomplish Biblical fellowship through our growth groups. The Bible teaches that transformation happens in tight-knit community as Christians gather to learn and live the Scriptures with an emphasis on application and relationships.
    4. Multiply: Multiplication is the result of transformation. We love God and want to serve others in the church and in our community with his love. We want everyone to know and be impacted by his love.  We want to love God, love people, all the time. As we lovingly serve God and others in this way, God gives the increase. 

Summarized: We expect every member of First Baptist church to make their personal relationship with a God a priority through practicing the spiritual disciplines, to commit to worship on Sunday morning where you will be strengthened in the Lord, to be actively involved in a growth group where you will be challenged to learn and live the gospel on a deeper level, and to serve God and others actively throughout the week so they can know God’s love also. This is the transformational process at FBC – personal pursuit of God, gathered worship of God, tight-knit community, and loving service of God and others.
