First Baptist Church is a loving and welcoming body of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, whose three-fold mission is to Exalt the Savior, Edify the believer and Evangelize the unconvinced. In 2017 we will celebrate our 60th year serving Christ and others. We are a member of the Southern Baptist Convention, The Baptist State Convention of Michigan and the Greater Detroit Baptist Association.
First Baptist Church
congregation of faith
We believe that the Bible is God's Word to mankind and is infallible and inerrant in its original manuscripts. We use both the Old Testament and the New Testament as the foundation for our faith and the inspiration for our daily lives. We put those teachings into practice at home and at work.
Pastor James W. Jones faithfully served First Baptist Church from 1960 to 1983 at which time he left to be the Director of Evangelism for the Baptist State Convention of Michigan. After serving in that capacity for 15 years Pastor Jones returned to take up the mantle of Senior Pastor in 1999, and has led our congregation in faithful living and community service ever since. This year he celebrates his 40th year as pastor.
