Our Strategy is to

Introduce people to Jesus Christ.

Our desire is that God would use the members of First Bible Church to engage our culture with His truth. Convinced that Jesus Christ is the only way to God, we want others to know Him.

Establish people in the essentials of the Christian faith.

God not only leads people into a relationship with Himself; He wants us to continue growing in our knowledge of Him. Our ministry is designed to help people take that next step in learning how to glorify God through their lives.

Help people discover how God has created them to minister to others.

As people grow closer to Christ, they want to have an impact for Him in the lives of others. God has given us the community of faith to help us minister to others.

Send people out to make an impact in the world!

We are committed to playing a vital role in what God is doing throughout the world. Our heartbeat is to see people from every tribe and every nation glorify our God!
