About Us

Visiting A Church For The First Time Can Be Intimidating

 We're not perfect

That’s probably why we make such a close family, because we’re all sort of limping through life and growing in grace. We’re not evaluating you—when you walk in, we’re glad to see you! Don’t worry about having to measure up or fit in. None of us really measure up, and we’re all very different. Our family is very diverse, so fitting in isn’t an issue

We're not very religious

Honestly, religion has let a lot of people down. Religious structures and systems are confusing, complicated, and disconnected from real life. We would love to help you move from “religion” into an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ.

 We speak plain English

We worship Jesus, study the Bible, and encourage each other in simple terms you’ll be able to connect to your daily life.  We believe and teach what the Bible actually says and why it matters—no pointless traditions, no archaic languages, no irrelevant lectures.  We open the Bible and apply it to real life in the twenty-first century.

We're just everyday people

We really are just regular, friendly people. “Religious” people often come off contrived, artificial, and argumentative. You won’t find that at First Baptist. We’re like you—working hard, fighting for healthy relationships, looking for encouragement, and glad to have some good friends who also have faith in Jesus Christ.
