Our Mission & Vision
The Mission of First African Baptist Church is to be “The Church In The Community For The Hearts Of The Community” – Acts 13:43 Now when the congregation was broken up, many . . . followed Paul and Barnabas: who, speaking to them, persuaded them to continue in the grace of God.
We believe we can accomplish this mission by being...
A HOSPITABLE Church "Let brotherly love continue. Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares." Hebrews 13: 1-2
A HOLY Church "But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy." 1 Peter 1: 15-16
A HEALTHY Church "Ye shall therefore put difference between clean beasts and unclean, and between unclean fowls and clean: and ye shall not make your souls abominable by beast, or by fowl, or by any manner of living thing that creepeth on the ground, which I have separated from you as unclean. And ye shall be holy unto me: for I the LORD am holy, and have severed you from other people, that ye should be mine." Leviticus 20: 25-26
A HELPING Church "For I was hungry, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me." Matthew 25: 35-36
