WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT First Baptist?
First, Expect Imperfect People
We never want to give the impression that we are perfect and without problems. The members of First Baptist get angry and upset, we have our desires and preferences, we laugh and we cry, we have our hopes and dreams, and we are just like everybody else. With all this being true, we know that Jesus provides the answer to all of our problems. We are sinners who have been forgiven and we desire others to be forgiven as well and live their lives for the glory of Jesus Christ.
Second, Expect to Be warmly Welcomed Just As You Are
Whether you are a regular member or a first-time guest, whether you wear a coat and tie or dressed in jeans and t-shirt, you will be warmly welcomed just as you are. We believe that it's the attitude of your heart that matters to God, rather than your physical appearance. Our concern is about meeting people where they are and help one another grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Thirdly, We Expect to Worship
We hope you are blessed by the warm reception but most importantly we hope you worship God through Christ-honoring music, and a biblically-based sermon. We believe that Sunday is truly the Lord’s day and we come here to offer our sacrifice of praise to Him from whom all blessings flow. Our services are approximately an hour long.
Fourth, Expect Something for Everyone
We believe the church is about making faithful followers of Christ and equipping themfor being a Christian witness in the world they live. We offer small groups for all age groups that meet on Sunday at 9:45 and at various times and locations during the week.
Kids Life is the children’s ministry (preschool through 5th Grades) at First Baptist Church of Walterboro. Though it might appear that our role is simply childcare or babysitting, we are much more than this. For us, children’s ministry is truly a ministry. Our mission at KidsLife is to lead children to a new life in God and to help them grow into passionate followers of Jesus Christ. We seek to partner with parents to grow children spiritually from a, "Seed to a Tree"! We provide activities and services that are biblical, relational, safe and fun. Check out our Web page!
