When Jesus Christ walked the earth two thousand years ago, He engaged all sorts of people with one simple call: "Follow Me." His call remains the same today. At First Baptist Church, we are a community of believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior who are seeking to advance God's Kingdom through worship, Bible study, missions, evangelism, fellowship, and prayer. We are seeking to follow Jesus, and in so doing, we are finding the full and abundant life He gives. We are finding eternal hope, peace that passes understanding, joy that is unquenchable, and love that is everlasting. That life is available to anyone who will follow Christ - including you!

God sent His Son Jesus into the world to save sinners like all of us, and once we give our lives to Him, He transforms us to become everything God intended us to be: His children living in His love and living out His truth in His world for His glory. That's why we're here - to follow Christ and to become everything He can make us so that the world around us is blessed. We'd love to have you join us!
"...be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect" (Romans 12:2).
God has called us to love and worship Him with every part of our lives - including our finances. The Bible says that God gives us His money to steward for His purposes, and part of that stewardship is to give back to Him a portion of that which He has given us. The standard to which God calls us is the tithe, which is ten percent of our income.
What happens to the money you give to First Baptist Church? Put simply, it is used to fund the ministries of the church so that people might be able to follow Jesus and find life in Him. Specifically, the money you give funds our Ministry in Action Budget, which is used to fund the church's various ministries, support missionaries and ministries around the world, maintain church facilities, and support church personnel.
At First Baptist Church, we take God's money very seriously. All financial assets of the church are managed by a Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, and Finance & Investments Team. If you have questions about the church budget or financial reports, please be sure to attend our bimonthly Church Business Conferences in which full financial reports are given. You can also contact the Church Office for more information.
