Our Mission

Glorifying...Growing...Going


The most important mission we have as a church is to bring glory to God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We strive to do this in every moment of each day through the lives we live and the ministries of our church. 


The second part of our mission is to grow in Christ. We grow in Him through personal study of His Word, times of prayer, small group Bible study, and listening to the preaching of His Word. 


If we bring glory to our Savior and grow in Him daily, then going to the world around us and beyond us with the good news of the Gospel flows naturally from our lives.

What we believe

First Baptist is a church of people whose hearts' desire is to bring glory to our God, grow in Him, and go for Him. Are we there yet? Have we arrived? No. But by God's grace and mercy we will continue to "press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus." (Phillipians 3:14 NASB95) 


First Baptist is a Southern Baptist Church that adheres to the doctrines of the "Baptist Faith and Message, 2000." The church was formed on September 2, 1893.
