About us

Mission and Vision

As a church, we believe that every follower of Jesus should have a regular routine of corporate Worship, Bible Study, Fellowship, and Service. This is​ summarized in our motto: "Knowing, Loving, Serving Christ... Together."

We are a church with a 5-pointed vision that we hope will help us reach our surrounding community. First Baptist strives to be a "Church at the Heart of the City" known for our Neighborhood Focus, Relational Discipleship, Radical Hospitality, connection with Young Adults, and enthusiasm for Fresh Expressions of Church. To learn more about what that means, we invite you to continue to explore our website and contact us with questions. 


Our Beliefs

We believe in the One God Who exists eternally in Three Persons—Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


We believe in Jesus, the perfect incarnation of God the Son, Who died taking upon Himself our sins, rose again on the third day, and will come again.


We believe all humans are created in the image of God and deeply loved by our Creator.  Yet, because of our sinful choices, we are in need of a Savior.  


We believe Jesus is that Savior—the Savior of all who will turn from their sin and follow Him.  


We believe in the power of God’s Holy Spirit to teach, comfort, enable and transform us.  


We believe in the Bible as the trustworthy authority for what we believe and practice.  


We believe in the Church as the body of Christ in the world.  


We believe in our calling to meet human needs and to encourage others to follow Jesus, both in our community and around the world.


We believe our decisions in this life have eternal consequences.  


We further believe that our hope for Heaven comes through faith in Jesus, not our own goodness.  


We believe we are to be good stewards of our God-given resources, from our talents to our finances to our planet.  


We believe in grace as the heart of the Christian faith. 

We also affirm the 1963 version of the Baptist Faith & Message. Neither that nor the above is an all-inclusive statement of our beliefs.
