Why church?

At First Baptist Church we believe that God has revealed Himself through His inspired Word, the Bible. We believe that God has called us as a church to share the good news of the gospel with our community and the world. No matter your background, we want to welcome you to join us for an engaging worship service and encouraging fellowship with people who genuinely care about you. For more information on our beliefs and doctrine please visit Our Beliefs page.
