CORE VALUES

Our strategy for making disciples at First Baptist is built upon 5 values. By living these out individually and corporately, we can have the greatest impact locally and globally. We want to pass the values on as we make disciples who make disciples.


BIBLICAL TEACHING
We believe the truth presented in the Bible and applied by the Holy Spirit is the only source of spiritual transformation.

LOVING ACCEPTANCE
We believe that an atmosphere of grace and acceptance in the spirit of love frees people to grow and serve. Acceptance does not mean we condone sinful behaviors, but rather we accept people where they are at when they enter our ministry with the hope of leading them toward Godliness.

AUTHENTIC RELATIONSHIP
We believe that loving, open, honest relationships should permeate every aspect of our ministry. We believe that healthy small groups are the best environment for developing these relationships and for promoting maturity.

PASSIONATE WORSHIP
We believe that everything we do is a form of worship. Our desire is to be a community that worships Jesus Christ. We believe worship is more than just a gathering Sunday morning. It is a lifestyle.

GIFT-BASED MINISTRY
We believe that God has uniquely created and gifted each believer for serving the Body of Christ. These gifts are necessary for us to be a church that sends people on mission.
