First Baptist Community


church-circleWe are a welcoming, inclusive community of faith.

Worship is at the center of our life.
Worship that touches the mind, heart and soul follows Christ into the world.
Worship that blends both the traditional and the contemporary.

We seek to nourish a thoughtful, maturing faith.
We offer all ages opportunities to explore and deepen their faith. Our focus is learning what it means to be a disciple of Christ in today’s world.

We are committed to Christ’s ministries of justice and peace
through Service, Dialogue, and Action.
