Our desire is to be a lighthouse in our local community while still seeking to reach the world for Christ through our involvement in missions.
The Sufficiency of Scripture
When we speak of the sufficiency of scripture, we refer to the fact that the Bible is the final authority in all matters of faith and practice. Therefore, we continue to make every effort to structure our church according to the biblical mandate.
A Biblical View of Conversion
Our mission is not to get as many people to ‘walk the aisle’ as possible. We desire to see true conversion. We constantly proclaim and explain the gospel, and take our time with people struggling to understand what it means to follow Christ. We are especially careful with children and would never manipulate or rush any child into making a “decision” to “accept” Christ.
Christ Exalting Worship
The Bible has little to say about worship styles. However, one thing is sure, we are to engage in Christ exalting worship through praying, preaching, Scripture reading, singing, giving, honoring and obeying God.
God has given clearly defined roles to men and women in the home and in the church. While these roles have come under attack in our culture, God has not changed. We embrace, teach, and celebrate these distinct roles at First Baptist Church.
While the church is called to make disciples, it is clear that God has given the family as the primary discipling agent. We believe that children are a blessing from the Lord and are entrusted to their parents for their spiritual upbringing.
