Adult Discipleship

“We proclaim Him, admonishing and teaching everyone with all wisdom, so that we may present everyone perfect in Christ.” Colossians 1:28

It is our goal at First Baptist to help people progress in the lifelong pursuit of becoming like Christ. We desire to lead you to a growing and more vital faith. The purpose of our ministries is not just to give out information, but to lead people to transformation. It is our joy to help people fulfill God's calling in their lives. Thank you for investigating our ministries — we feel it will be a place that you (and your family) can grow and mature as a part of a larger “family.”

Bible Reading Plans – 2019

We encourage everyone to read the Bible for their personal growth, edification, and to be able to share the Gospel with others. We offer four different Bible reading plans, each simply designed to help and encourage you as you strive to grow in your Christian walk and faith. Each is available to download for free, or you can pick up a printed copy in the church foyer.

Sunday Mornings – Adult Bible Communities

We have small group Bible studies for all ages each Sunday morning at 9:45. Class listings are below.

Our adult classes offer two primary series for cohesive, structured Bible study  – The Gospel Project or Explore the Bible. Both are by Lifeway.

Many of our Sunday morning Bible studies (including preschool, children, and students) are studying through The Gospel Project. The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered and Gospel-focused Bible study. The children will study the Bible chronologically while our students and adults will look at the doctrines God gives us in His Word and how they all point to Christ. The objective of The Gospel Project is to equip believers with a strong knowledge of the Gospel which leads them to a greater commitment to live out the truths of God's Word every day! You can also visit their blog at www.gospelproject.com/Blog

Some of our adult classes opt for the Explore the Bible series. “Explore the Bible provides book-by-book Bible studies for groups of adults, students, and kids. Each session takes participants deep into Scripture, revealing context essential to understanding the text's original intent, and promoting transformation through God's Word in everyday life.” Lifeway

Men's Ministry

mens_bible_studies_fall2016_web_home_thirdOne of the keys to a man's growth in Christ is to find men of like heart and become brothers, moving together toward the goal of Christ-likeness. The men's ministry at First Baptist Church encourages men to develop vital relationships with other men that will help each man to walk with God and grow in his Christian life; to be a pacesetter at home and at church, and to share the Gospel with the lost and un-churched.
See our full listing of Men's Bible Studies under the Adult Discipleship Classes tab.

    Ladies' Ministry

    ladies_bible_studies_fall_2016_web_home_thirdThe purpose of the women's ministry is to encourage every woman to maintain a vital relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The women's ministry scriptural focus is found in Jeremiah 24:7 which says “And I will give them a heart to know Me, for I am the Lord; and they will be My people, and I will be their God, for they will return to Me with their whole heart.”‘
