Next steps

We are here for YOU as you explore your Next Step!

Tiffany Vaughan

Executive Director of Ministries and Next Steps

Thank you for being a part of our church family! As you learn more about our church and yourself, we are honored to journey beside you as you grow in Christ, your God-given purpose, and make a difference for the Kingdom. It starts with YOU and YOUR NEXT STEP.

Whether you want a relationship with Jesus or are a seasoned Christian who wants to disciple others, we are here for you! We're happy to help you make connections, explore your gifts to serve in the local church, find the right group to learn about God's Word, equip you to disciple, send you out to disciple others, or everything else in between.

You can fill out the form at the bottom of this page, and one of our Next Steps team members will contact you, or you can meet us at the Next Steps table in the foyer after service on Sunday.

Start with Growth Track

We are always looking for better ways to serve our guests and church family. We realize waiting after church to attend a new member class, finding childcare, wrangling kids, or missing out on your favorite Sunday morning Connection Group is NOT FUN. Embarking on a journey of connection and growth has never been this easy, exciting, and convenient!

Enter our BRAND NEW Digital Growth Track. Our team is excited to connect with you every month to help you on your pathway to connection at First Baptist. Walking into a new church for the first time and navigating what's next can be overwhelming. To simplify it, we've designed a three-step track to discover First Baptist for membership, develop your God-given purpose to serve, deploy into Kingdom work with a servant's heart, so you can pursue God's design for your life.

Also, the best can join us from the coziest spot in your home; no more juggling schedules, we've got you covered. Each month, we will meet on Zoom from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM while we engage with 3 distinct classes.

6:00-6:45 PM: DISCOVER: First Connection
7:00-7:45 PM: DEVELOP: God's Purpose for Me
8:00-8:45 PM: DEPLOY: A Servant's Heart

Get started today!  The beauty of this method is that you can hop on and off this call to meet your needs and pick up on your next step the next month. Or you can choose the fast track and go all in one night and be on your way. Regardless, WE ARE HERE FOR YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!

stepTHREE: Deploy


Dive into the electrifying third step of Growth Track: DEPLOY: A Servant's Heart. This digital experience is all about the heart and what it looks like to lead like Jesus. Before you embark on your servant leader journey, we'll supply you the heartbeat of Biblical leadership. Whether you play an instrument or teach God's Word, you will have a flock, a circle of influence that needs YOU to disciple them. What better way to start than with healthy leadership that is modeled after Jesus?

Here are a few other NEXT STEPS we can help with!


We believe God is in relentless pursuit of us! If you have questions about salvation or the Gospel, we have a team of people who love Christ and love the Gospel who would be happy to answer your questions. There is never any pressure to make a decision; we want you to have a safe place to ask your questions and clearly receive the Gospel.


As a church family, we practice believer's baptism by immersion – the way Jesus was baptized and the way the Bible commands. It's an outward symbol of an inward decision to repent and believe in Jesus. Let's celebrate your decision to follow Jesus.


At First Baptist, we believe every family is better with a church family. We would love for you to join ours, and we would love to invite you to step 1 in Growth Track, called DISCOVER: First Connection so you can see what we are about. It's important to us that you feel at home and understand our core values and mission in fulfilling the Great Commission, not just seats in worship.


Groups are how we love one another like family and grow in our faith together. Our Sunday family gatherings are a great way to increase your faith and grow as individuals, but God designed us for relationship - to do life together. Join one of our groups as we study the Bible, pray for one another, care for one another, and love our neighbors together.


First Baptist is a place where you can serve and use your gifts! Every believer is called to a life of service, whether in the local church, community, or friend and business circles of influence. God has gifted every believer with gifts to serve the church family and impact the world. Join step 2 in Growth Track, called DEVELOP:  God's Purpose for Me to explore your giftings and learn how you can serve at First Baptist.


Our Mission at First Baptist is Disciples Making Disciples. From the moment you enter our doors, we will look for opportunities to journey alongside you. Whatever season you're in, we want to help you draw closer to Christ, with the ultimate goal that you will multiply and invest in another. Learn about our discipleship opportunities.
