Our Mission Statement
(Why we are here)
“The purpose of First Baptist Church is to love God and to share His love with this community and the world.”
Our church Mission Statement is our family’s expression of both the Great Commandment and the Great Commission. It grows out of our firm conviction that Biblical Christianity is not a religion but a relationship with the Living God through His Son, Jesus Christ! Consequently, our Mission and Ministry Goals are relational in nature as well:
-TO LOVE GOD (Give glory to God)!
-TO SHARE HIS LOVE WITH OTHERS (Evangelize)!
