Who Is Our Senior Pastor?

Pastor Marty Pursel who truly believes that God's people must reach outside the walls of the church to their communities and be the Heart and the Hands of Jesus Christ.

What's New?

We at First Baptist Church are a rural country church with a heart to share the Gospel message of the saving power of Jesus Christ with all we come in contact with.

What Do We Teach?

We use both the Old Testament and the New Testament  as the foundation for our faith and the inspiration for our daily lives. We put those teachings into practice at home and at work.

What Are Our Core Values?

Just as Jesus said in the Beatitudes, blessed are the poor in spirit and those who hunger and thirst for righteousness. Our mission is not just to love one another, but to make sure we spread the love of the Gospels everywhere. Our desire is to bring Jesus Christ to those who understand their spiritual depravity before God, show them how Jesus Christ can quench that spiritual thirst and regenerate their lives as a follower of Jesus Christ.
