What to Expect

What are services like?
FBC has worked tirelessly at a blended service to celebrate and praise the Lord in a variety of ways. This would include contemporary praise music with a full band, a full choir, traditional music, personal and heartfelt prayer, involving the children, Biblical preaching, powerful personal testimonies, and much more!

What is the community like?
First Baptist is a multi-generational community that reaches out to all age and demographic groups. The church is an active, involved, and inviting community - praying; worshiping; singing and playing music; doing hands on mission work overseas, in the US, and locally; playing sports, practicing music; serving; loving; and praising God for His love.

What if I'm not a Christian?
All are invited to come experience the Lord at First Baptist - from those seeking understanding about life, to those struggling with challenges, to those who hope to deepen their relationship with the Creator. Becoming a follower of Jesus does not mean that you decide to start attending church regularly, purchase a new Bible, or start giving to the poor. While those are all great things that Christians and non-Christians do, it is so much more than that. The first and most important thing is to understand who Jesus is, and what he came to earth to do.
