The mission of First Baptist Church is to develop missionary disciples who worship God, grow spiritually, and share the Gospel and their spiritual gifts.
WORSHIP – Our lives are made to glorify God and recognize Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. We love God by glorifying him through obedience and showing others what Jesus is like in our words and actions.
GROW – Developing Disciples, Spiritual Growth & Maturity, Fellowship. We love each other as we mature to become more like Jesus and we help disciple each other to grow and mature spiritually. We do this through intentional fellowship and living life involved in each other’s lives.
SHARE – Called to share the Good News of the Gospel and God’s love with our community & the world and to share our spiritual gifts and abilities. We love our local community and communities around the world by serving them and sharing the Gospel with them. God places believers together in local churches to be part of a living body each doing one or more parts.

Can I trust God when everything seems to be going wrong?
The answer is in Hab. 3:18, yet I will rejoice in the Lord. I will find joy in the God of my salvation. God is my strength. He watches over my steps.

Jesus said the most important thing to do is love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. In our Gospel Treason class, Brad Bigney (LINK) said we are all made to worship God but many people worship anything and everything but God. As believers, we need to make sure that God is the one we love most. He is the one we go to first with our joy, our pain, our needs, everything.
