our vision


  • KNOW


    "And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent."  John 17:3

    New Life - eternal life - is a gift from God to you! It can be found only through faith in Jesus Christ.

    To learn more about a new life in Christ please visit the Next Step Center located in the Welcome Center on Sunday morning, or contact the church office to learn more about starting a new life in Jesus Christ.


    When someone says YES to a new life in Christ, they embark on a new path - one that has an entirely new purpose! Jesus told His followers that they should let the world know that they are now living with a new purpose. One way to do this is by being baptized. To learn more about how you can be baptized, please contact the church office.


    When a person says YES to Jesus, they not only start a new life with a new purpose, but they also become a part of a new community called the church. The church is made up of people who have said YES to Jesus and who are now striving to live lives of faith, hope and love. To learn more about the ministry of First Baptist and/or how you can become an official member, please visit the Next Step Center on Sunday morning or contact the church office.

  • GROW

    Connect through the Study of God’s Word.

    Growing with others is a key to your experience at First Baptist Church. That’s why we have Bible Studies, Community Groups and Wednesday night  programs. This is your opportunity to be involved with a smaller group of  people as you build relationships and study the Bible together.


    Serving with others is one of the best ways to get to know people and build valuable relationships. We’re here to help you find a place to serve in your area of interest, passion and giftedness. There are many opportunities spanning every Ministry Team with varying degrees of time commitment that will fit in your schedule. 


    Our desire is to share Jesus with the world around us, locally and globally. Every relationship we have is an opportunity to share the difference Jesus makes in our lives. Additionally, FBC has a wide variety of mission opportunities to share the love of Christ right here in Stockton and around the world.
