The purpose of First Baptist Church is for spreading of the gospel of Jesus Christ through evangelism: through the effort of every member, and in cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention, to reach out compassionately and creatively to all persons and extend the kingdom of God throughout the world; to minister to the whole person in His name; to disciple and develop good stewards of all the Father’s gifts; and to maintain consistency in attitude and behavior that is exemplary of Christlikeness by being yielded and submissive to His Spirit.
Statement of Faith
The Holy Bible is the inspired Word of God and is the basis for any statement of faith. The Church subscribes to the doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Message as adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention in 1963. We band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind. The ordinances of the Church are Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
