Who we are
First Baptist Church is a multi-generational church seeking to honor Jesus Christ and His Word! The church isn’t a building--it’s people. And we think you’ll find First Baptist Church is a pretty friendly bunch! That means “there is a place for you at FBC”. We have ministries specifically designed for preschool, children, youth, adults, and senior adults. The cornerstone of our ministry is deeply rooted in five values: Worship, Evangelism, Discipleship, Fellowship and Ministry.
We want to help you get to know God better and enable you to become who He’s created you to be. No matter where you are in life, we’ll help you figure out the next steps in your journey with Him. We want to see you succeed, but feel safe enough to fail. We want you to learn how to live common sense Christianity, without getting caught up in religious non-sense.
We believe that strong families start with a solid foundation. We partner with parents to help raise up the next generation to have a strong relationship with Jesus. We have opportunities during our Sunday morning services and mid-week services for children and teens and adults to create relationships with Jesus and each other
