The First Baptist Church is organized for the purpose of advancing and promoting the woship of God through the reading and study of the Holy Bible as the revealing word of God; the teaching and preaching of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ; conducting regular services of worship for the spiritual training, development and benefit of each member; and winning souls to Jesus Christ. This church shall be missionary in spirit, extending the gospel through our organized religious channels to the entire world. It shall exist to provide regular opportunities for public worship, to sustain the ordinances, doctrines and ethics set forth in the New Testmant for the Chruch of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to channel its offerings to the support of the objects of the Kingdom of God.
We the members of First Baptist Church, Black Mountain, are a body of baptized believers with Christ as our head. We gladly commit ourselves to be a prayer-centered, scripturally-based, mission-minded family that loves one another. By offering Bible-based education and training, we seek to affirm, develop and use the spiritual gifts of all members. As the Lord leads, we will develop new ministries, inter-generational activities, variety in worship, hospitality and outreach. Our Father is leading us to be a spiritual lighthouse, by sharing His redemptive plan with surrounding communities and throughout the world. We are dependent upon the Holy Spirit to lead us boldly out of our comfort zone to a higher level of commitment in our walk with Christ
