Sharing the Love and Life of Christ
First Baptist Church lives God’s vision through these core ministries:
Worship – We experience God through worship (Isaiah 6:1-8).
Evangelism – God gives us opportunities to tell the Good News about Jesus (Acts 8:26-40).
Discipleship – The Spirit’s gifts equip us for maturing in the faith (Ephesians 4:11-16).
Ministry – Our faith lives through ministry (James 2:1-17).
Fellowship – Our fellowship with God reflects in our fellowship with others (I John 1:1-7).
Having received the Lord Jesus Christ as our Savior and, on profession of our faith, having requested and received baptism, we enter heartily and joyfully into this covenant:
To live together in Christian love;
To strive for the advancement of this church;
To sustain its worship, its ordinances and its teachings;
To contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the church and the relief of the needy;
To extend the Gospel to all peoples;
To nurture our children in Christian faith and culture;
To seek the salvation of our kindred and acquaintances;
To walk circumspectly in the world;
To be just in our dealings and faithful in our engagements;
To seek diligently the
in all things; of kingdom God
To remember each other in prayer;
To cultivate Christian sympathy in feeling and courtesy in speech;
To be slow to take offense and always ready for reconciliation.
Out of love for God, our Father, these things we agree to perform faithfully. Amen.
