Our Purpose

You areĀ NOT an accident! You were created by God for a specific purpose!

At First Baptist Church, we feel that there are five basic purposes in the life of a Christian. Everything we do as a church relates to these purposes.


Isaiah 6:1-9

Worship: Experiencing, loving and pleasing God.
Our objective is to be a church that encourages individual and group worship in order to lead people into a genuine experience and an intimate relationship with God.


Acts 2:42

Fellowship: Loving God’s Family

We strive to be a church family that demonstrates God’s love toward one another. Our hope is to love one another and to care for specific needs, just as Christ has commanded.


Romans 12:1-2

Dischipleship: Becoming like Christ

Our desire is to be a church that nurtures and develops believers toward Christlikeness, leads members to deeper spiritual commitment, and help others develop spiritual maturity.


Matthew 9:36

Ministry: Serving God and Serving People

We want to be a church that serves God by building up the body of Christ. We will do our best to help every member find a meaningful place of service related to the way God has shaped their abilities so that all the needs of the church are met.


Luke 24:45-48

Evangelism: Telling People About Jesus

We will be a church that proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and beyond. We will do whatever it takes to reach our community and our world for Christ.
