Jesus is central to everything we do here. We sing, pray, and preach in His powerful Name. Our past, present, and future is centered on Jesus Christ. Our purpose on this earth is to make much of Jesus Christ. If you're new to FBC, we would love to get to know you better.

We are real people who recognize our need of the Savior. We are united with a common faith and vision, joining together in the covenant love of our Creator. We are committed to reach our community and the world with the Good News of Christ. We firmly believe that you should come as you are to the feet of Jesus, for He is capable of transforming a broken and contrite heart into a blooming soul that brings Him joy. We believe in the study and application of God's Word, together in fellowship. As we gather together as a church body, our priority is to focus our attention on God's Word, studying and applying it, and to give Him the glory in everything we do.
"So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints, and are of God's household, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus Himself being the corner stone, in whom the whole building, being fitted together, is growing into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together into a dwelling of God in the Spirit."
We used to be completely broken . . . but now we are healed through forgiveness. We used to be lost, but now are grateful for the salvation provided by His amazing Grace. We are humbled by the invitation to be included in God's redemptive plan for this broken world. This truth is what inspires us to worship the Lord for He is worthy of all our praise!
"but speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ, from whom the whole body, being fitted and held together by what every joint supplies, according to the proper working of each individual part, causes the growth of the body for the building up of itself in love."
We serve a good and perfect God. He is Sovereign over all His creation and we are His broken vessels used for His kingdom. We are His hands and feet in this world and seek to love people as He first loved us. We believe that the purpose of every Christian is to spread the Gospel and love of Jesus to the uttermost parts of the earth and that it starts right here at home. There are many ways to get involved here at First Baptist. Whether you give financially, or give with your time, prayers, gifts and talents, we encourage you to be faithful to the work of our good Father.
