Our Mission & Vision

Our mission here at First Baptist is “To bring people to Jesus and his membership in His family, develop them to Christ-like maturity, and equip them for their ministry in the church and life mission in the work in order to magnify God’s name.”
 

What we believe:

WE BELIEVE in the Holy Scripture; accepting fully the writings of the Old and New Testaments as the very Word of God, inspired in all parts.
 
WE BELIEVE there is one God eternally existent in three Persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
 
WE BELIEVE in the Deity of Christ; His virgin birth; His shed blood for atonement; His bodily resurrection; His ascension into Heaven there to be our Intercessor.
 
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit convicts our sin, makes believers children of God through the new birth, assuring them of Heaven, and by His indwelling enables Christians to live a godly life.
 
WE BELIEVE that all persons are by nature and choice sinful and lost, and have within themselves no possible means of salvation.
 
WE BELIEVE in salvation by-grace through faith; that salvation is the free gift of God, not by any virtue or works of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ; that all true believers possess the gift of eternal life, a perfect, righteousness, son-ship in the family of God, and the divine guarantee that they shall never perish.
 
WE BELIEVE in the existence of Satan, the deceiver, and god of this present we believe that he was defeated and judged at the cross, and therefore his final doom is certain.
 
WE BELIEVE in the second coming of Christ; that His return from Heaven will be personable, visible and glorious; the time being unrevealed but always imminent.
WE BELIEVE in Heaven as the Final Destination of the saved, and in Hell as the Final Destination of the unsaved.
 
WE BELIEVE in the priesthood of all believers, that Christ is our Great High Priest and through Him every born again person has direct access into God’s presence without the need of a human priest; that the believer has the right and responsibility to personally study and interpret the Scriptures guided by the Holy Spirit.
 
WE BELIEVE that a New Testament Church is an organized body of born again baptized believers practicing scriptural ordinances and actively engaged in fulfilling the Great Commission.
 
WE BELIEVE the two scriptural ordinances given to the local church are baptism by immersion of believers only, and the Lord’s Supper to be partaken in by professing Christians.
 

Meet Our Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
