Who We Are
First Baptist has been called to:
MAKE, MATURE and MOBILIZE
disciples of Jesus Christ who love the Lord above all else and touch others with the reality of Jesus Christ.
We carry out our mission through focusing on the four major functions
to which the New Testament directs the church.
To acknowledge that the God of the Bible is above all gods.
To praise God because of Who He is and what He has done.
To open our hearts to His revelation of Himself and His will.
To devote ourselves to carrying out His will and purpose.
John 4:24; Roman 12:1,2; Psalm 92:1-4; Psalm 150
Through studying the truths of the Bible and applying them to daily living.
Through developing each believer's talents and gifts.
Through involving believers in doing the work of the ministry.
Through modeling mature Spirit-controlled lives which reflect the character of Christ.
II Timothy 3:16; II Timothy 4:2; Ephesians 4:11-13
By praying for one another's needs, burdens and joys.
By encouraging and serving one another sacrificially.
By demonstrating love and being loved through the power of the Holy Spirit.
By fellowshipping together in the activities of our church and in homes.
Hebrews 10:24,25; I Thessalonians 5:11-14; Galatians 6:2
With an aim to share the good news of Jesus.
With a commitment to apply ourselves and our resources to reaching our families, friends, community and world for the cause of Christ.
With continual prayer for the redemption of people apart from Christ.
Matthew 28:19-20; Acts 1:8
Our church is affiliated with the North American Baptist Conference.
