The purpose of this church is to glorify God as a Bible-believing, Spirit-filled fellowship who loves God, loves people, and passionately follows in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.


First Baptist is a bible-believing church, committed to teaching the life-changing words of Jesus in a relevant way. We desire to be a God-glorying fellowship that affects our community with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

We are a multi-generational, multi-cultural, family-centered church community who believe in the sovereignty of God, that salvation is found in Jesus Christ alone, and that the bible is the inerrant, infallible Word of God.


Loving God.  We are passionately in love with God.  We do this out of devotion and desire, eager to love God through the power of the Holy Spirit in the name of Christ Jesus.[1]


Loving People. We are a church that loves people, recognizing that as God has called us to love Him, He has called us to love people.[2] 


Following Jesus.  In all that we say and everything we do, we desire to glorify God as we follow Jesus’ leading, through the teachings of the Bible and the prompting of the Holy Spirit.[3]
