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.

It is written: “I believed; therefore I have spoken.” Since we have that same spirit of faith, we also believe and therefore speak, because we know that the one who raised the Lord Jesus from the dead will also raise us with Jesus and present us with you to himself. All this is for your benefit, so that the grace that is reaching more and more people may cause thanksgiving to overflow to the glory of God.
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
