"We are a family of faith seeking to know Christ and make Him known."
"We are a family of faith… That means we place a high value on our community. Our goal is not to be a collection of familiar strangers, but a spiritual family that shares life together through the bonds of Jesus Christ. We share life together through worship, prayer, bible study, and meals in our church and homes.
Seeking to know Christ... Our first priority at First Baptist Church on Fifth is to know Jesus Christ in an intimate way. We come to know Christ through following him and his teachings. As we continue to follow Jesus Christ we are able to see the Kingdom of God come 'on earth as it is in heaven.'
And make Him known." Once we know Jesus, we cannot be satisfied keeping him to ourselves. Our mission is to be the presence of Christ through word and deed in our community and around the world, inviting others to come to know the same Jesus we know and love.
This is our mission. This is our dream. Please join us as we strive, with God’s help, to make this dream a reality!
