DISCIPLESHIP

TealLine75

At First Baptist Church, we have learned that when we use biblical words to describe biblical truths in biblical ways, our doctrine and practice will be sound, our thinking will be renewed, our lives will be transformed, and God will be greatly glorified.

That’s why we describe how disciples are made with four biblical words: love, grow, serve, and go. A disciple loves God with all their heart, soul and mind. A disciple grows in obedience and Christ-likeness. A disciple serves like Jesus served. And, a disciple goes  in obedience to Jesus’ command to make disciples.

These four words also describe the path we encourage every disciple to walk at First Baptist Church. We challenge every Christ-follower to…

  • Love . . . God through worship
  • Grow . . . together in a Bible Study Growth Group
  • Serve . . . others in a ministry, and 
  • Go . . . with the gospel.
When by God’s grace we do all four, it’s good for us, for the church, and glorifies God.
 
The first step along the discipleship pathway is to participate in a DiscoverPoint Class. This is a one-hour Sunday morning class where you will discover who we are, what we believe, and how you can become connected at FBC. During this class, Pastor David Eldridge and Minister of Education Jim Gifford will introduce you to our church staff and the many ministry opportunities that await you.
