About

Who We Are

First Baptist Church is a welcoming, family friendly, user-friendly, multi-generational congregation. Our worship service is informal, spirit-moved, and joyful with much praise and a wide range of music from a diversity of people and groups. We believe in prayer and hearing the word of God through our music, scripture, testimony, and preaching. We like to laugh together, eat together, cry together, pray together, and celebrate together.

We are mission minded, giving a generous portion of our income to missions, reaching out to the community, and sending our members on short term missions.

We provide a full service Sunday School program serving pre-school to adults (see the HOME page for times).

During worship, we provide a nursery for infants; a play group for young children; and a Children’s Church for older children.

We know in our hearts that Jesus Christ changes lives when we truly accept his Lordship. We believe the best way to proclaim the gospel is with an honest and genuine walk with the Lord.

We preach the good news of the resurrected Savior who is seated in power at the right had of God, our Father. In our worship, we open our hearts willingly to the leading of the Holy Spirit. We pray that the fruits of the Spirit are evident in our everyday behavior.
