Making Disciples who Make Disciples
I’M NEW HERE
We ‘re glad that you have stopped by to learn what we’re all about. We hope you see our passion for Jesus and His gospel. He is the reason we do what we do.
First Baptist is a God-centered, mission-minded, multi-generational body of believers. The most concrete means of expressing love for God is worship. Therefore, we provide opportunities for both traditional and contemporary worship and support personal worship as a lifestyle.

Worship is our response to God’s initiative. It is His idea and it is all about Him. Worship services are planned scripturally to reflect what God is saying to us as a church and to give voice to the heart’s desire of His people to praise Him. We respond to Him corporately in different ways but always consistent with His Word. From contemporary, to more traditional, to blended services, we want to worship in spirit and in truth.
Students are energetic, creative, passionate, and just plain fun to be around. Our goal in student ministry is simply to help students take those positive traits and use them for the kingdom of God. Our students are involved in Bible studies designed to challenge faith to flourish and inspire Christ-likeness. We also have different avenues of ministry opportunities throughout the year for students to share the hope of the gospel. In addition we offer numerous opportunities designed to promote Christian fellowship and spiritual growth.
Our desire is to provide support and encouragement to parents while providing programs and activities that lay a strong spiritual foundation for children from birth to 6th grade. On-going preschool activities include Sunday School, Mission Friends, choir, Mother’s Day Out, Weekday Early Education, and nursery care during worship. Older children enjoy Sunday School, Discipletown (kids church), RA’s, GA’s, and choir. Throughout the summer, kids can also enjoy VBS, Music Camp, Art Camp, Centrikid Camp, & other “Fun in the Son” activities.
Sunday School– our primary mode of small group Bible study.
Connection Groups– small groups that are interest driven and biblically based.
Refuge– college bible study that meets every week at 7:30pm
The Well– Women’s small group that meets on Thursday mornings.
The strategy of missions at First Baptist is to be a beacon of light in our community, preparing disciples, and sending those whom God has called out into the world through multiple mission opportunities locally, nationally, and internationally.
Watchman Prayer is our 24/7 prayer ministry. Our Watchman Prayer Wall consists of 168 prayer warriors, one for each hour of the day, 7 days a week and 24 hours a day. If you would like to be a part of this intercessory prayer ministry please contact the office.
