Here you will find a listing of some commonly asked questions about First Baptist Church...
What should I expect if I attend a church service? - On Sundays at 10:45, we all gather together for worship. The song portion of our service lasts for about 25 minutes, while the remainder of the time is spent listening to Bible preaching. Our service lasts a little more than an hour.
Is it okay to bring my children into the Worship service? - Yes, this is not a problem. Some young children may find it difficult to leave their parents in an unfamiliar setting. We hope that families who begin to attend our church will come to appreciate the value of their children developing close friendships with their peers in the context of the local church.
What version of the Bible do you use? - The pastor studies, teaches and preaches from the English Standard Version, but different Sunday school teachers use various versions.
What type of music can I expect to hear? - We sing a blend of hymns and contemporary praise songs. We have a praise team and praise band who make even the oldest hymn sound great! In any given service you may hear a 300-year-old hymn sung right after a song written six months ago and being played on Christian radio today. Our worship leader also incorporates loop technology to give the music a fuller and more custom sound. We are seeking musicians who love to lead others in worship. See Josh for more information.
Is there a dress standard at your church? - There is no specific dress code for those attending our service. We just recommend clean, modest clothing. You won't be judged for wearing blue jeans and flip-flops or a shirt and tie.
How big is First Baptist Church? - At the time of this writing, we have anywhere from 150-200 people who attend on Sunday morning.
What type of preaching will I hear? -Preaching is the center of the worship service. Pastor Brian typically preaches in sermon series, usually through books of the Bible. He desires not only to teach the Word, but to apply it to our everyday lives. Knowledge for knowledge sake only puffs up!
Do you have a youth ministry? - Yes. We have an active youth ministry that meets on Sunday mornings at 9:30 for Sunday school and Wednesday nights at 6:45pm for worship and Bible study. They participate in summer camps, fundraisers, and lots of other fun and challenging activities.
Who leads the church? - While we believe that the church itself is the final authority in all matters of church government, we realize God has given us a pastor to lead us. He is assisted by the deacons of the church.
