Welcome to First Baptist
Letter From the Pastor
“…to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,” Ephesians 4:12 (ESV)
I have always loved this verse because it is so foundational for churches. Everything we do in church ministry should be focused on building up the Body of Christ. Our serving, worship, discipleship, evangelism, giving, leading, even our conversations should be building up.
At First Baptist Church, we are:
- Building up families – Our church family and individual families to live and serve better for Jesus Christ
- Building up our faith – Challenging & equipping our congregation to grow in faith. Learning together how to better follow Jesus Christ. Serving as the hands and feet of Jesus.
- Building up our foundations – We seek to learn from the Word of God, the Bible, applying it to our lives and our church so we have a strong foundation that will endure.
