Thank you for visiting our website!

Here you will find information concerning First Baptist Church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. First Baptist is a warm and loving church, and we want you to feel comfortable and at liberty to call on us for anything you need. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn about our fellowship.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest.

When you visit First Baptist, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age

We practice open communion at First Baptist. That means if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you are welcome to join with us during communion. We celebrate the Lord's Table during the first Sunday of each month. Our communion bread is nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free so that all of the Church body is able to partake together in unity. 

Please note: At this point in time, due to the COVID-19 Virus, all in-person activities at First Baptist Church have been cancelled through June. A recorded sermon will be available via our website. The FBC Board has recently voted to open the building on July 19th for worship. 

Preliminary guidelines for participating are as follows:

  • Masks must be worn to safeguard all people.
  • Seating will be in every other pew.
  • Social distancing will be required in seating.
  • The service will be different from the norm. [Details still to be worked out].
  • There will still be a video presentation at 10 am on Sunday for those who are not ready to return.

Good Afternoon Church!

I hope you are are all doing well. Here we are at the first Sunday in July. Amazing! As you celebrate the fourth, please stay safe. Our worship this Sunday includes Holy Communion, so gather your bread and juice for when you watch. The text continues on in Romans 7:15-23. This is a very difficult reading. There are many thoughts about what it means. I will attempt to do my best unpacking it. I decided to call the sermon "Law and Disorder."

We are still planning on holding service in the building on July 19. We do have another Board meeting on July 15 and we will make a final decision at that time.

Enjoy your weekend and holiday.

Hi Church,

We are approximately three weeks out from meeting for worship in our building. Please keep leadership in prayer as we work through the many details.

This week is the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost. Our text this week continues in Romans chapter 6. We will be looking at verses 12-23. If last week was about our justification, then this week we move into what is called sanctification. The two cannot be easily separated because they work hand in hand. Basically, sanctification is our journey to holiness empowered by the Holy Spirit over the rest of our lives. There is no growth chart for this experience. Over time God shapes and molds us though our study of his word, our experiences in life, our church life, and our growing prayer time.

Please keep Aundrea Leppert in prayer. Her grandfather passed and the ceremonies are today. There is an obit in today's paper.

Our two local high schools will hold graduation ceremonies on Saturday outdoors at Dalzel Field.

Blessings to everyone.
