Current Series - February 24 through April 21

The Bible is full of examples where 1 person was important to God. Jesus made the effort to go after that 1 person that society considered an outcast. As believers full of the Holy Spirit, we can make a major impact in reaching that 1 person without Christ, for the glory of God.

Please join us as we explore how to be 1 and reach 1.  Service times are Sunday at 9am and 11am.

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.

  • Celebrate Easter - April 20th  & 21st

    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.

    There is freedom found in Christ. Come and discover how much God Loves You this Easter! “For God So Loved” is a dramatic musical presentation with a powerful message reflecting on the life of Jesus Christ and freedom that He brought.

    Join us Saturday, April 20 at 6pm and/or Sunday, April 21 at 9 and 11am.

  • 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.

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