Inspirational worship in two styles (traditional & contemporary)...dynamic youth ministry...Bible study opportunities and small group fellowships... short-term missions and more make up a part of who we are at First Baptist! All of these are centered on God's Word and all are warmed by the love and grace of Jesus Christ. If you're longing to connect with God and with others, if you want to know about (or know more about) the grace of Jesus, we invite you to visit us on these pages or in person!
Our theme statement is:
"GATHERING, GROWING, and GIVING to GLORIFY CHRIST!"
Psalm 106:47 - II Peter 3:18 - Luke 14:33 - Hebrews 13:20,21
This statement reflects our desire to be a spiritual community where the people of God are ...
- GATHERING, both in the sense of bringing people closer to Christ as well as drawing together for encouragement and service
- GROWING, both spiritually and numerically
- GIVING, of our lives in service to Christ as well as our resources to help expand His kingdom
- GLORIFYING, we want all we do to lift up Jesus before the world.

The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side.
And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore.
And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow;
And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up:
Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth:
And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away.
And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them:
But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold.
Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.
