About First Baptist Church
Our mission is to provide worship experiences, educational processes, and opportunities of fellowship that advance God’s Kingdom by empowering believers in Christ to impact communities around them by serving as witnesses for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
This mission statement contains a desired result and the process through which the results will be achieved. The mission is to impact the communities surrounding our church—our Jerusalem. We are Kingdom people who strongly desire for the Kingdom to be advanced. We also understand that all through history God has chosen to use people to reach people. It is an honor and a privilege to be used by God as an agent of spiritual transformation.
With this understanding, that God uses His people to reach others, we as a church have a responsibility to equip people to accomplish this task.
Our conviction is that people who have a fresh, vibrant relationship with the Lord are the most effective witnesses. There is genuineness and authenticity in their life that is complemented by their testimony. We invest a significant amount of resources in helping our folks experience a fresh walk with the Lord. We believe worship, educational processes, and fellowship opportunities are key elements in empowering our members to be witnesses.
Much prayer, thought, planning, and effort go into every worship experience, educational opportunity, and fellowship event with the goal of helping people experience the presence and power of the Holy Spirit in order to be effective agents of spiritual transformation.
