We, the people of First Baptist Church, are the body of Christ in this place. Our desire is to live under the Lordship of Christ and according to the truth in His Word. We have been placed here to fulfill the following responsibilities:
To draw near to God in grateful praise and thanksgiving for our salvation and for all of our other blessings (James 4:8, Romans 12:1, Hebrews 10:25).
As a result of these blessings, we strive to share the good news of Christ with everyone who needs to hear (Matthew 28:19-20, Acts 1:8).
To teach the Word of God in order to equip Christians to walk with Jesus and to faithfully serve Him (Matthew 28:20, Acts 18:11, Colossians 3:16).
To provide a network of loving concern and support for those in need (Matthew 25:34-40, Galatians 6:2, 10).
To encourage one another in Christian love and spiritual growth, working together in a spirit of unity (Hebrews 10:24, Ephesians 4:3-4, Acts 2:42).
