Jesus gave the marching orders over two thousand years ago. As the disciples of Christ stood around him on that mountain in Galilee, many of their questions were answered and their path was made clear. There would be no more confusion as to what they were to do as followers of Christ. His command was simply to go. At its core, First Baptist Church is a Great Commission fellowship. We want to be part of Christ's mission in the world in whatever way possible. Below you'll find just a few of the ways we try to obey Christ's command to reach our community and the world with his gospel.
