Elements of Worship
At First Baptist Church, we practice some time-honored ordinances of worship that are important to our faith. We believe that it is important to observe these elements on a regular basis, giving our congregation an opportunity to participate as a body of faith in these rituals.
Holy Communion is served on the first Sunday of each month in both the Journey and the Traditional services. During the Journey service, Communion may be received through the "intinction" method or through the standard method.
Baptism is offered on the last Sunday of each month, as well as on Easter morning. We practice believer's baptism, offering this Christian rite to every person who has accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and committed their life to following Him. At First Baptist Church, we wait until children
are old enough to believe and understand the true
meaning of baptism before we baptize them.
At our Parent- Child Dedication service, parents commit to raise their child in dependence on divine grace, and in partnership with the church, to teach their children the truths and duties of the Christian faith: and with prayer, precept and example to bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Our prayer is that in due time each child may be led to trust Christ as Savior, and confessing Him as Lord in baptism, be made members of His Church.
