What We


What to expect when you visit the First Baptist Church 

A friendly Christian welcome.


A group of Christians assembled to worship God through Jesus Christ His Son


A Worship Service with lively singing of our praises to the Lord


And the Bible-centered message with the faithful presence and work of the Holy Spirit.


What We Believe


In the Bible, inspired by the Holy Spirit in all parts; infallible and authoritative.


There is only one God, eternally existent in three persons; Father, Son and Holy Spirit.


In the Deity of Christ, His virgin birth, His shed blood for the atonement of sin, His bodily resurrection and His ascension into Heaven.


In salvation by grace through faith, that salvation is the free gift of God, not by any virtue of man, but received only by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. John 3:16; Romans 3:23; 6:23; 5:8, 10:13; 10: 9-10
