We at First Baptist want to be all about Jesus.  If we are to look at history, there was no one more talked about than Jesus.   It has been over 2000 years and he is still being widely discussed, highly debated, and passionately followed.  Here we don’t want you to merely know about Jesus we want you to have a life changing relationship with him.  He is the head of our Church and we want everything we do, whether it be our services on Sunday mornings or other meetings during the week, to be in accordance with Jesus purpose for us and the church.  We are all about Jesus but how do we get to know Jesus and his purpose for us?  We study what the Bible says about him and the church.




We are glad that you asked!  Our worship service is built around the preaching of God’s Word and Worship.  The preaching style varies from Sunday to Sunday.  From going through books or sections of the Bible to choosing a topic and then scour through Scripture, we desire to help you see that Jesus is everything to us because it is only in Him that we can find salvation and satisfaction in this life.


First Baptist Church music includes a variety of worship songs and styles.  We mix traditional music with contemporary, hymns with new songs.  Our desire is help you prepare your heart and mind to hear and respond to God’s Word no matter who you are.  Also the first Sunday of every month we take communion together, remembering Jesus broken body and shed blood for atonement of our sin.  Giving our offerings to Jesus is another important part of worship as well, as we desire support God’s work at First Baptist Church.  Our gatherings are casual, loving and open to all.

We love children and we do not take the opportunity to help your child grow in their relationship with Christ lightly.  During the preaching portion of the service children kindergarten through 3rd grade are offered the opportunity to have a lesson catered to their age level. The lessons are fun and are taught by volunteers that love teaching children.  If they are lucky the lessons might include crafts and snacks.
