Our Church Purpose
First Baptist Church exists: to Love God through Worship, Discover God through Discipleship and Share God through Evangelism.
Becoming a Part of God’s Family:
The way we come to know God is through a relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ, by responding in faith to His invitation to a new life. If you want to accept that invitation, all you have to do is ask Him. Admit that you are a sinner. If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. Believe that Jesus isGod’s Son, that He died on the cross for you, and that He rose from the dead. Confess your sins, asking God to forgive you, and make Jesus the Lord of your life
(I John 1:8-10; Rom. 3:23, 10:9-10).
Becoming a Part of the FBC Family:
At the end of each worship service, we give an opportunity for people to respond called the “invitation.” During this time, worship participants who desire to join First Baptist Church may come to the front of the Worship Center where they will be greeted by the pastor or member of the church. A recommendation will be given in becoming a part of the FBC family in one of three ways:
- BAPTISM: For persons who have been saved by accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior and desire to obey Christ by being scripturally baptized by immersion.
- LETTER FROM ANOTHER BAPTIST CHURCH: For persons who are saved, have been baptized by immersion after salvation, and are members in good standing of another Baptist church which will transfer them by letter to First Baptist Church (we will handle the transfer of the letter).
- STATEMENT OF FAITH: For persons who are saved and have been baptized by immersion after salvation but are not members of another Baptist church.
