"For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us."
At First Baptist Church we desire to encourage people to use the gifts God has given each person within the leadership of the church. This church is lead by the Executive Board and a number of Departments. Each of these departments carry out a number of ministries within First Baptist and in the community. For more information about the needs of those ministries can be found on the Ministry Opportunities page.
The members of the Executive Board and each Department make up the Diaconate of the church. The Diaconate, along with the pastors, provide the spiritual leadership within the life of the church.
