Jesus said, “Follow me.”  Everything we do as a church is an attempt to do just that.  We do our best to create an environment of learning that nurtures our hearts and challenges our minds.  We engage in serious Bible study and meaningful conversations.  We are comfortable with disagreement and welcome questions.  And throughout the year we offer classes on Church History, Theology, Ethics, Scripture, and other subjects.  Yet we know that the life of faith cannot be confined to a classroom; it is a way of life.  And so we learn to follow Jesus in formal and informal ways–in the classroom, in the sanctuary, in our homes, and in our communities.  We invite you to join us in following the One who calls us and draws us near.

When you come to First Baptist Church you will find an open table.
All are welcome; none are excluded.
