Jacob Simmons (2).png

At First Baptist Church our mission is simple - reach people and make disciples. We desire to see the nations reached. Through various partnerships all around the world, our church is able to be the hands and feet of Jesus in particular cities, states, and countries where God has enabled us to do His work. We long to live as a people who are sent on mission for the sake of the advancement of God's kingdom!
