Additional Info About Our Church
First Baptist Church is evangelical, reformed, and strongly missional. We ordinarily practice expository preaching and have a big focus on discipleship and growth in Christ. Our worship is blended worship, and our tradition is Baptist (our Baptist roots date back to 1823 in the Pittsfield area). There are believers from all different denominational backgrounds here, who have found the Christ-centered and cross-focused nature of our worship to be comfortable to them, although they are not from a Baptist background. Visitors often comment about the warm and friendly atmosphere here. We have all different styles of music. There are both the older hymns and more contemporary praise songs. We have a choir and a bell choir, but also a praise team with guitars, bass guitars, keyboards, drums, and hand drums. Kids are welcome in the service; we also have nursery and junior church services available for the little ones. Usually there is a children's message as part of our service. We also have wheelchair access to our building. Holy Communion is celebrated regularly, and is an important part of our worship.
To be a caring community that is intent on finding and growing God's people, while serving our world.
We see this Church, in the midst of a culture of change, continually communicating the Gospel in relevant and persuasive ways, both to Christians and to the unchurched. All people will be welcomed, cared for, nurtured, fed, and given opportunities for service. Leaders and teachers will be raised up from within our midst. This will all be done in dependence upon the Spirit's power, and under His guidance.
