New Sermon Series - July 7 through September 1

The book of 2 Peter teaches that the grace of God in Christ truly transforms and empowers Christians to live righteously, even in the face of opposition.  Rather than become complaisant, we can develop a vibrant faith that will stand strong.  Are you someone who needs to grow in your faith and trust God even when you don't understand what's is happening around you?  Then this series if for you.

Welcome to First Baptist Church

The world is longing for hope. We believe that hope is found in a relationship with Jesus Christ, and loving and being loved by His community of followers. Our goal is to infuse the hope of Christ in unexpected ways and help move people into action to live a life transformed.

  • Mountain Blessings Women's Retreat - September 6-8, 2019

    In His sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right–a study on blessedness, a reflection on the Lord's Prayer, a meditation on lilies of the field.

    But what if we navigated these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? 

    Please join us at Sky Mountain Christian Camp, September 6-8, for the video teaching "Sermon on the Mount" by Jen Wilkin.  Registration fee is $130 and can be purchased below by using the Buy Now button.

    For more information regarding the retreat, please contact Dawn Brindley at 530-273-7301.

  • Survivor Babylon - KidZone Performance

    Told with creativity and humor, this musical tells the story of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego and their encounter with Babylon’s famous King Nebuchadnezzar (and his even more famous fiery furnace!)

    The musical seeks to show children the importance of obeying God instead of men and like the Hebrew children, they can take positive, faith-filled action to conquer their fears and their foes!

  • God So Loved Easter Production

    Easter is the time we remember Jesus’ death and celebrate His resurrection. During this glorious time of year, you may feel defeated, bound by guilt or shame, and your faith may be wavering because of circumstances in your life. The good news is that the power of God’s love can break down strongholds and drive out all fear, desperation and loneliness.

    “God So Loved” is a dramatic musical presentation with a powerful message reflecting on the life of Jesus Christ and freedom that He brought.
