The mission of First Baptist is no surprise. It is not one which we dreamed up on our own, but rather we must simply adopt the mission given by Jesus Himself. It is centered around the Great Commission of Matthew 28. While many see the Great Commission as largely evangelistic in nature, we know that the text goes so much deeper than this. It is a call to make disciples, not converts. There is a call to teach those who have been baptized. Further, our mission is to help those in need, with a mindset to help with both the physical and spiritual needs. The Great Commission is the mission Jesus Christ gave the church, which makes it the mission of FBC.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth, and the life, and that no one comes to the Father except through Him. We believe that the Holy Bible as the inerrant, infallible, and inspired Word of God and the basis for our beliefs. We subscribe to the doctrinal statement of the Baptist Faith and Message. We voluntarily band ourselves together as a body of baptized believers in Jesus Christ, personally committed to sharing the good news of salvation to lost mankind.
We voluntarily associate with the Piedmont Baptist Association, North Carolina Baptists, and the Southern Baptist Convention.
