  • Our Mission

    To develop missionaries who will share Christ's love with our community and beyond.

    Our Strategy

    We are working to accomplish our mission by regularly practicing these 3 strategies:

    • To encounter God in Worship
    • To equip the church through Bible Study
    • To engage the world for the sake of the Gospel
    Schedule & Directions
  • What We Believe

    About The Bible:

    We believe God inspired the writing of every word of Scripture, and, therefore, we believe that it is without error.

    About God:

    We believe there is one, living and true God. We believe He is Holy, ever present, all knowing and all powerful, and He exists in three persons: God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We believe we can come to know God through His creation, His Word, and the work of the Holy Spirit. God is most clearly seen in the life of His Son, Jesus Christ, and Jesus is the only means by which we can have relationship with Him.

    About Humanity:

    We believe men and women were created in the image of God but that image has been tarnished because of sin. We believe there is a desire to know and be known by God written on every human heart, but because of sin, we do not possess the power to regain a right relationship with Him without salvation through Jesus Christ.

    About Salvation:

    We believe the wages of sin is death and all of humanity has a debt before God that we can never repay, but God sent His Son to bear His wrath for our sin so that we can be saved. The only means of salvation is to repent and believe on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. This free gift can be received by anyone who by grace through faith surrenders their life to God. We can never earn salvation by how we live, but true salvation will result in a dramatic change in how we live.

    About Baptism:

    We believe Jesus ordained baptism as the public profession of salvation by believers. We believe the Bible records that baptism should be by immersion and only after surrendering your life to God. Baptism does not save you from your sins, but it is a public proclamation that Jesus has saved you.

    About The Church:

    We believe the Church is the body of Christ connected to Jesus as the head. The members of the Church are those who have responded to God's gracious call through faith in the finished work of Christ on the cross. The purpose of the Church is to worship God, equip believers for ministry and to evangelize the world.

    First Baptist Church of Palmetto upholds and agrees with the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
