To Know Jesus and to Make Him Known.
About First Baptist Church
We are a group of people striving to live God honoring lives as defined by the Bible. We are not perfect, but we team together to help each person be all they can be through the power of God. We want to know Jesus and make Him known.
What we believe
We believe the Bible is God's inerrant message to humanity. We believe God is the only true God. Adam and Eve's sin destroyed the relationship of all humanity with God. Jesus Christ redeemed humanity from the penalty of sin by dying on the cross, being buried and rising again from the dead. Read our complete doctrinal statement. (LINK)
I am blessed to be married to my High School sweetheart, Beryl, for 42 years. God has blessed us with two boys and three grandchildren.
My favorite Bible verse is 1 Peter 2:9, "But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light."
Some of my favorite activities are bicycle touring, kayaking and camping.
I married my High School Sweetheart, Roger, 37 years ago. God blessed us with two sons, one daughter, and seven grandchildren.
My favorite Bible verse is Romans 5:8 & 6:23. "But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."
Some favorite activities are: sewing, decorating cakes, traveling, reading, and most of all, spending time with my family.
My favorite Bible verse is
"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails." 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
I enjoy riding my Harley, cooking, vacations, crafts, visiting with friends.
