Our mission is to share and demonstrate the saving grace and power of God through Jesus Christ. We do this by serving our community and the world in Christian love. In doing so, we believe in the need for community based service programs that transform and empower lives. Our programs are facilitated by volunteers in our congregation and local agencies in our community that provide a variety of programmatic and enrichment opportunities.
We are celebrating a tremendous 120 year church anniversary in 2015 at First Baptist Church of South Orange. The volunteers and leaders who push our strategic plan for outreach services to the community are making a great difference in the lives of the children, youth and families.
First Baptist Church is committed to linking community resources and specific expertise to effectively address the needs of the family, youth, seniors, and address issues of poverty, re-entry, and eradicating forms of injustice and violence throughout our community. We continue to focus on Mentoring and Education as major components of our current services. The team of visionaries and strategic planners look to add additional services in the near future.
