The foundation of First Baptist Church of Eaton Rapids is the Lord Jesus Christ (I Corinthians 3:11), and its code of guidance in all its affairs, the Word of God, and we affirm that the Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of Almighty God (Mark 13:31).
Our mission is to glorify God by developing fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ in accordance with the teaching of His Word set forth in the New Testament (Matthew 28:18-20), to sustain its ordinances and doctrines and to preach and proclaim among all peoples the gospel of salvation which is by personal faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord.
Our vision flows from God’s glory revealed in Jesus Christ. We exist to make disciples who make disciples through winning the spiritually lost, building the believer in their faith, equipping the worker to do the work of the ministry, and growing spiritual leaders who can shepherd and lead God’s people.
Our vision can be communicated in 4 succinct words – LOVE. CONNECT. SHARE. THRIVE.
