Making disciples who make disciples is essential to us at First Baptist
We exist to glorify God by attracting and winning people to faith in Jesus Christ, nurturing them in our Christian family, bringing them to Christ-like maturity, and involving them in meaningful ministry.
John 8:31-32 “So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
God’s word is where we discover His truth and perfect love for us. Sunday School classes and small group Bible studies are where we come together intentionally to grow in our knowledge of God and faith in Him. These groups also provide great opportunities for developing and deepening relationships with other believers.

Jesus said in John 15:7, “If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”
When Jesus is our essence for life and we are discovering His perfect love and truth in His word, then our communication with Him will reflect that. His will for our lives will become our hearts’ desire.
Prayer and Worship times are designed for us to communicate to God our love for and obedience to Him.
Jesus said in John 13:34-35, "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
Fellowship times are designed for us to celebrate God’s faithfulness in our lives and promote unity in our church. From chili cook-offs and church olympics to variety shows and family picnics, we make sure to have a little fun while developing and deepening our relationships with one another!
Jesus said in John 15:8, “By this my Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and so prove to be my disciples.” Later, Holy Spirit defined this fruit by writing through Paul in Galatians 5:22-23, “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Jesus also said in John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.”
Our outreach and service opportunities are designed for us to glorify God by seeing the needs of others as greater than our own and to bear the Fruit of the Spirit in our world.
