Mission & Vision
A Church Home in the Heart of Kingston…Experiencing freedom and security in Jesus Christ through love, growth, and service.
Love: Jesus summed up the law in two commands: Love God and Love others. We seek to offer a place where believers respond to God’s love by worshipping in Spirit and Truth, and learning to love others sacrificially. ( Luke 10:27; 1 Peter 2:4-9, John 4:24,Phil. 2:4, 2 Cor. 8:5)
Growth: As believers grow in love, a desire for the Word of God takes root. We strive to feed that holy hunger through relevant, biblical preaching and discipleship classes that meet both at church and in homes throughout the week. ( Phil. 3:10, Acts 2:42, 2 Pet. 3:18, Prov. 6:23, Matt. 28:20)
Service: Once believers experience the transforming power of God’s Word, they are set free to find their place in ministry in all manner of creative ways. Jesus’ last words were to make disciples of all nations. We seek to encourage and support the spiritual gifts of each member by providing opportunities to serve, and by being open to new, Spirit-led ministries that will allow First Baptist Kingston to reflect the glory of God to all people and make disciples here and among the nations. (John 8:32, Matt.28:19, Luke 8:21, 2 Cor. 5: 18-20;, Psalm 67:2)
