How To Join
Attend one of our Next Steps classes. Here you’ll get to connect with the leaders of First Baptist while you learn what we are really all about. This isn’t your typical church membership class, but an interaction in which we can learn about each other and a platform for you to get your questions answered.

At First Baptist, we prioritize relationships. We want to ensure that no member stands alone in life’s spiritual journey so your next step in this process is to join in and experience one of our Small Groups. One of the best barometers of being a Christ follower is the reflection of the fruit of the Spirit, and we utilize Small Groups as the laboratory to cultivate that fruit.
