About Us

Everyone is Welcome

We at Advance First Baptist Church are blessed of God in many ways. The fellowship here is amazing, and our congregation shares a common love for Jesus Christ, for the Word of God, and the advancement of His kingdom.

We passionately believe that unyielding, Biblical doctrine and knowledge is necessary to strengthen our Christian experience and worship. Sorrowfully, many churches today have turned, instead, to a “feel-good- gospel” and an entertainment-oriented worship; leading to larger numbers while clear teaching of the Bible has been neglected. Our goal is to see the Word of God prevail (Acts 19:20) in our preaching, evangelism, and personal lives; in this way, we may bring glory to Him.

At the center of our lives is Jesus Christ in whom we must continue to seek.  This we feel is accomplished through comparing scripture with scripture; line upon line, precept upon precept until we see the accurate picture of who Jesus is and what His plan is for the church. We must learn to worship Jesus in Spirit and in Truth that the act of worship is accomplished through the spirit that comes from learning of Jesus.

At Advance First Baptist Church we take seriously the teachings of the Bible that Christians are the family of God.  As a family of faith, we desire to love God and to lover others.  It is our love for each other that brings us together in good times and in difficult times.  We invite you to be our special guest and experience the joy and excitement of the family at Advance First.  You will find that being part of the family in a great feeling.  We would love for you to join us for worship or any of our other activities.  If you are looking for a place to belong, Advance First Baptist Church may be the right place for you.  We are here for you.
