First Baptist Church is a community of people from all walks of life who have been transformed by the incredible grace of God through faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our mission here at FBC is to EXALT Jesus Christ as Lord, EQUIP our members to serve and EVANGELIZE Christian County and beyond.
How do I become a Christian?
Admit -Admit you are a sinner and turn away from your sin to follow God’s new direction for your life. (Rom. 3 :23; Acts 3:19)
Believe -Trust in Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, for eternal life. (Jn. 3:16)
Confess -Acknowledge Jesus as Lord and the Leader of your life. (Rom. 10:9,13)
Invite -Pray asking Jesus to forgive you and accept God’s free gift of salvation. (Rom. 6:23, 10:13, Jn. I:12)
How may I join?
- By Baptism - When you have already personally committed your life to Jesus Christ, but have not yet been baptized by immersion as a public symbol of your faith.
- By Transfer - When you are a member of another Baptist Church.
- By Statement - When you are a member of a church of another denomination of like faith and practice, and have been baptized by immersion as a public symbol of your faith.
When do I join?
Near the close of the Sunday service, during the invitation, go forward to the minister and tell him of your decision. We strongly encourage a meeting with one of the ministerial staff prior to this decision. A minister will meet with you to help you understand your decision, answer any questions, pray with you and secure the information necessary for our records. Usually this takes just a few minutes. New members are presented and welcomed to the church.
I still have some questions.
You are more than welcome to call, 270-886-1216. If you would like to visit us in the church office located on the Virginia Street side, we are open Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm.
