Additional Info About Our Church

First Baptist Church is an independent, Baptist church that has served the community for over 100 years. The church takes a strong stand on the fundamentals of the faith: Christ's Virgin Birth (Isa. 7:14; Luke 1:26-35), the Deity of Christ (Col. 2:9; Heb. 1:8), Jesus' Blood Atonement (Heb. 9:12-14; Rom. 5:9), Jesus' Bodily Resurrection (John 2:19-22; Luke 24:39), the inerrancy of the Scriptures (Prov. 30:5-6; Ps. 12:6), and the imminent return of Christ (Js. 5:7-9; Heb. 10:24-27,37). The church is a Bible-based church in that the Scriptures are the church's standard and sole authority for what they believe (faith) and what they do (practice). The church believes that Christians are called to live holy, consecrated lives that are separated from sin as revealed in the Word of God. In addition, the church is heavily involved in reaching out to community with the Gospel and Faith in Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins and for eternal life). The church is not only "Baptist" in name, but is "Baptist" in doctrine and practice in that it upholds the eight Baptist distinctives that have been believed by Baptists throughout the centuries (Google "Baptist Distinctives" for more information). Ministries include: Spanish Ministry, Sunday school for all age groups, Nursery, Music, Missions and World Outreach, and Bus Ministry.
