Why do we exist as a church


First Baptist Church exists to love God, love our neighbors, and love the nations by reaching those who are far from Jesus and making them mature followers of Christ.


To become an equipping and sending hub of multi-cultural disciples across the region and beyond.


This means we center everything on Jesus and the Gospel. Jesus is our focus as we reach unbelievers, mature believers, and multiply leaders.
