Our Church is...
A Place of Friendship
In Proverbs 17:17 it says, "A friend loves us at all times, and a brother is born for adversity." All of us know the importance of having friends. Where would
we be without them? Friends are a blessing and real joy. At First Baptist, we strive to be a friend who loves at all times, and the brother or sister one needs
during trying times. We seek to be the friend "that sticks closer than a brother." (Prov.18:24)
A Place for Learning
God says, concerning His Laws in Deuteronomy 5:2, "Learn them and be sure to follow them." Isaiah 1:17 says, "learn to do right! Seek Justice, encourage
the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow." Learning the Word of God is a high priority to us and critical if we are to
learn what pleases God. We do our best to present ourselves to God as one approved, a workman who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly
handles the word of truth (2 Tim.2:15). And we have fun doing it! Come join us.
A Place for Service
The Scriptures testify to the privilege and spiritual benefits of serving God and others. Stephanas and his household devoted themselves to the service of the
saints. Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. He also spoke of the need to be ready to serve. As God's people we desire to be of service to you in any
way we can. In this way, we too serve Him. (1 Cor.16:15; Mk.10:45: Lk.12:35)
A Place for Worship
Our primary reason for existing as a group of believers is to know and worship our great God and Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. We seek to do this in spirit
and in truth, in a spirit of gladness and joyful song. We want to ascribe to the Lord the glory due His name. We pray God will lead you to worship with us.
