First Baptist Church exists to...Celebrate God's Presence, Communicate God's Word, Educate God's People, Incorporate God's Family and Demonstrate God's Love.
The Recreation Ministry seeks to compliment the overall church strategy by:
  • Reaching others for Christ by assisting them to develop a personal relationship with our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.
  • Discipling all participants to carry out the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. "Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."  Matthew 28: 19-20.
  • Ministering to people by making and strengthening personal relationships based on Christian love, mutual trust and fellowship.
  • Fellowshiping by providing an environment and activiites that are fun and relaxing, giving church members and our guests an opportunity to meet one another and experience life together.
Recreation programs are open to everyone who desires to participate in leisure activities and sports within the guidelines of Christian fellowship. Church members are encouraged to invite others to participate in our programs.
