Worship Ministry

Positional statement: We believe our primary purpose in life is to worship Jesus Christ. We believe we were created to worship. (Exodus 20:3; Deuteronomy 6:13; Psalm 2:11; Psalm 66:44; Matthew 2:2; Matthew 4:10; John 4:24; Revelation 4:10)

The worship services of First Baptist are designed to lead us to a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and His teachings. We use the Bible as the text for worship. We rely upon the Holy Spirit to interpret and to apply the Word of God in the context of our lives.

Our worship events are transformational moments designed to encourage

obedience to Jesus and to strengthen the spiritual lives of our members.

The worship team uses the preaching moment, music, drama and media to present biblical truths with contemporary application to our lives. Each worship encounter with God concludes with an invitation to commit to Jesus as Lord.

Our church schedules several special worship encounters for Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving Community Wide Worship Service and other worship events. We observe the Lord Supper quarterly.
