New to First Baptist

At First Baptist, we promote “living faith”.

This means that we try to live for Jesus daily.

We are not a church with all the answers; we have many questions and struggles ourselves. Instead, we are a church that works together to live as Jesus taught. We are a people of missions, and we are on a mission to share the love of God with each other, our community, and the world.

We welcome you to share in a time of worship at your earliest convenience!

We are located in downtown Mount Holly:

Frequently Asked Questions

What is worship at First Baptist like?

Each week in worship we praise God through song, pray to God for one another and the world, listen to God’s word read and proclaimed, and leave renewed to live as Jesus’s disciples in the world.  We hope to think, laugh, and pray during worship.

For information see the Worship section of our website.

How does First Baptist ensure children’s safety?

While First Baptist is a church welcoming to all people, we do so in a way that ensures the protection and safety of our children. We are a church that has enacted SafeChild policies for all our children’s and youth ministries.

How must I dress to attend First Baptist?

You will find people in our church wearing suits or shorts, a golf shirt or sundress, and attire everywhere in between. Most of our members could be described as wearing business casual. We believe in the principle of bringing our best to God. We understand that might mean a suit or dress to one person, and it might look different to someone else. In the end, we are far more interested in people’s hearts and souls than what they wear to worship.

There are many kinds of Baptists. What kind of Baptists are you?

We are Baptists that stress freedom. We treasure the authority of the Bible, but also expect to wrestle with the tremendous complexity of the scriptures. We ordain women and men in roles of leadership as deacons and ministers of the gospel. We believe that every Baptist church is autonomous. We contribute our mission dollars through the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship and the Southern Baptist Convention. We can not be completely identified by who we partner with, but instead believe we are best identified by the way we worship, practice discipleship, build community, and do mission in the world.

What does Children’s ministry look like at First Baptist?

At First Baptist we focus our children’s ministry on Mark 10:13-16: let the children come to Jesus. We place a high priority on teaching children the Bible, and experiencing the relationships of a church community through missions, music, and worship.

We try to teach all these lessons in ways that are both fun and transformational for our kids. For more information see our children’s ministry page.
