Who We Are
a Church Home
Finding a church is as easy as checking the yellow pages. But finding
a church home, where you feel part of a real family is a little more
At First Baptist Church, we believe that being a part of a close, caring
church family is one of the most important decisions you can make for
yourself and your family. After all, church is where you'll be learning,
growing, and building caring personal relationships for a lifetime.
Meet our Family
We're a fellowship of Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and
are working to do His will where we live, work, and play. Through worship
and praise, reaching and preaching, music and activities and community
service, we want to reach others for Jesus Christ while encouraging and
supporting one another.
