Because of the Gospel of Jesus, that God forever loves us and has come near to be with us, First Baptist Church is compelled to serve. We don’t serve because we have to or because we are worthy to. We are simply moved by how Jesus has graciously loved us to go and love and serve others. We don’t do it perfectly. We may miss an opportunity here and there. We also don’t do it to be noticed or make the news. But we do it in hopes that our neighbors and the nations will trust the love and goodness of the God who came near.
