At First Baptist, we want to make it easy for you to connect with God and with others. Our church is designed to be an open community, where anyone can take steps to know Christ more and help others do the same.

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
Prayer is the heart of First Baptist and we want to pray for you! Christ says is 1 John 5:14 ~ This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us." So please tell us how we can be joining with you in prayer.
