Jesus Christ invited all who will put their trust in Him and His finished work on the cross to come and receive forgiveness and new life in Him. First Baptist of Elimsport is simply a group of people who have done just that and have joined together to grow in Christ and serve Him.
Why We Are Here
Our purpose is to worship God and glorify Him by bringing people to salvation in Jesus Christ and into maturity through fellowship with His family. Meeting together as believers is vital so that we help each other mature in Christ and become equipped for ministry in the church and in the world.
What We Do
We want to help people navigate the ups and downs of life by lending a helping hand and leading them to the answers in God's Word. We seek to accomplish that by connecting and learning through a variety of ways such as Sunday School and various church services through out the week. We also have ministries specifically geared for children each Sunday and on Wednesday nights during the school year and a Youth Group that also meets at that time for grades 7-12. Our Golden Heirs Luncheon for those over 55, a monthly opportunity to get together to share a meal and each other's company. There is usually a guest presenter for these events. We also host or participate in community events throughout the year to minister to our community and share the good news of Jesus Christ. Check out our ministries page for more information.
On a more personal level, we seek to be a community of people helping people, whether by lending an ear and a shoulder to cry on, or by lending a hand in times of need. Come find out what it is like to be part of this group and don't hesitate to call if we can be of help to you.
What We Believe
All people need to have a personal relationship with God. You see, about 2,000 years ago God took on the form of a man so that He could make a way for the human race to have a relationship with Him. John 3:16 says, "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life."
Jesus lived as a man for thirty years, yet because He was God, He never sinned. He was unjustly accused of wrong-doing and willingly died on a Roman cross to pay the penalty for the sins of all people, because as it says in Romans 3:23, "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
Three days after His crucifixion, because death and sin could not conquer Him, Christ rose from the dead and ascended victorious to His home in heaven. He will return to earth some day to judge sin, but is waiting for more people to trust in Him and accept the gift of forgiveness He bought on that cross. Romans 6:23 says, "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."
