We are a W.E.L.L. Church
We envision First Baptist Church as a fellowship of believers seeking to grow in knowing the Lord Jesus with all of our hearts, souls and minds, and desiring to trust in the presence and power of the Holy Spirit.
We envision carrying our this desire by:
W - Having authentic worship, where we praise God as being the Sovereign and Holy God, and receive His wonderful and amazing grace.
E - Being a fellowship that encourages intentional evangelism, where we desire and actively equip the fellowship to share and carry out the purpose in which God created us, which is to be a spiritual extension of His grace and love to a lost and hurting world.
L - Having a heart that loves others with a purpose and that is to love others as Christ loves us with an unconditional love. We further envision that the fellowship show this love by remembering one another in prayer, aiding one another in sickness and distress, cultivating Christian sympathy in feeling and Christian courtesy in speech, and being slow to take offense, always ready for reconciliation.
L - Encouraging every person in the fellowship of believers to have a lifestyle of learning with consistency. Every believer needs to mature in their walk with Christ to know Him better every day and to grow and abide in Him so that the fruit of the Spirit might be produced through our lives daily. This comes as we encourage each other to have a personal and corporate time with God.
