I am glad that you have found us, either by intent or accident!
At First Baptist Church we really have just two goals, to be “Loving the Savior” and “Serving my Neighbor”.
We seek to do the first one (Loving the Savior) through engaging our minds in bible study and worship, which moves our hearts to love the Lord our God with all our minds, heart, strength and soul. We seek to know Him so that we can rightly love Him. This of course, as Jesus stated, is the first and greatest commandment.
The second is like unto it, as Jesus put it, and that is we are to love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe that if we are truly going to love our neighbor then we must serve our neighbor. We seek to do the second (Serving my Neighbor) through various activities such as gathering school supplies for families in need, donating food to local food banks and our own food pantry, and other ways and projects which serve those around us.
We do not pretend that we are perfected, or have even achieved, all that we can do in either area, but we do seek, by the grace of God, to continue to strive in that direction. Our task is not through because God is not through.
If you want to know more about us, please feel free to look around at our website. It will serve as a good beginning to understand a little more about how we “live” as a church body. Better yet stop by on a Sunday morning to worship with us and get to know us.
Thank you and God Bless,
