"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, the the very end of the age."
Matthew 28:19-20 (NIV)
First Baptist Church of Clovis exists...
To lead an ever increasing number of people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ. We do this through seeking to fulfill the Great Commission which Jesus gave, as written above.
To help us achieve this, we have our Core Values and our Seven Pursuits.
Our Core Values
We believe that God works through His word. We want everything we do to be centered on the truths and teachings of His word so that we can be fully inline with His will.
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." (Romans 12:2 NIV)
Obedience to God's Word
God's word changes lives when it is believed and obeyed. God is honored and glorified when His people seek Him and obey Him.
"Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." (James 1:22 NIV)
People: The Object of God's Affection
God loves people. And so we love people too. We want people to meet Jesus Christ so their lives can be transformed. And we want Christ-followers to grow to know Him more and more so they their lives can continually be molded by him.
When Jesus returns, He promises to reward His faithful servants. We want to be those who are found faithful by our King. And so we have these Seven Pursuits in which we want to be found faithful. For more information about these pursuits, please click here.
