History

RICH HISTORY

First Baptist Church was founded just after the conclusion of the Civil War.  Throughout our first 100 years of ministry, First Baptist served as one of the cornerstones of our community.  During an era when many Americans were predisposed to attending church, FBC effectively fulfilled its calling through the leadership of Godly pastors, faithful members, and a strong commitment to missions and evangelism. Towards the end of the last century, we began to struggle to maintain an effective witness and ministry in our community.  Our facility had grown old, our worship attendance was declining and a church that was at the center of the community began to be pushed to the margins.                                    

 

NEW VISION

In the 1997, a courageous decision was made through the leadership of our pastor and key leaders to cast a new vision to reach our community for Christ.  Steps were taken to purchase new land, sell existing properties and raise funds as we navigated through a new adventure. As we came upon 2000, there were two key elements that continued moving the new vision forward at First Baptist - a new pastor who brought energy, enthusiasm, leadership and the move into a brand new facility.  Our vision was to fill the new 750 seat auditorium over time, but God's plan was bigger than we imagined.  Many people came and found a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and were baptized.  We had many new young families come as well which grew our attendance quickly and significantly.  God truly blessed our vision to reach our community at a crucial turning point in the life of First Baptist.
                
With the explosive growth over the past decade, there was need for more space for children and our worship experience. So the undertaking began and a brand new phenomenal Kids Zone addition was built as well as an expanded onsite worship space called "The Apex".  During this time, we also entered partnerships with church planting efforts in Independence MO, Kansas City KS, Lebanon, India, Iran, Serbia and France. In 2010, we called a new Senior Pastor who shares our vision to reach our community with the Good News of Jesus Christ, to develop strong leaders to impact our world and to connect people together through small groups.  We continue expanding our campus facilities with the most recent being a new lobby addition and a coffee shop - both of which will help create venues to connect people and generate a great Sunday morning experience!
