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. 

This week, December 6th, we will be meeting indoors for 10 a.m. worship service. We will be wearing masks and practicing social distancing for everyone's safety. This Sunday's sermon will also be available online for those who are not yet able to attend in person.

E-mail from the Pastor, Sunday, December 6, 2020

Hi Church!

We enter into the second week of Advent this week. I hope you are able to slow down and hear the voice of God calling to you during this time of waiting. Our text, 2 Peter 3:8-15, tells us that our timeline and God's timeline are not in sync. In fact we learn that God's timeline is really the only one that counts. The sooner we come to understand that the better. But we must still function within time, since that is our only choice. Thankfully God is patient.

Sunday evening is our first virtual meeting for our Advent study at 6:30 pm. The link will have 6:00, but we won't start until 6:30. Our meeting will run an hour or less.
