are a fellowship proud to be located in the West Plains area believing that God has a
special plan for south-central Missouri, and hopeful that He will use our
church to live out His purposes here!
Historically Relevant~ This fellowship through notable spiritual revivals in the 1890’s and 1960’s has truly helped shape the spiritual climate of WP and the surrounding area for the last 135 years. We believe that God has a plan for this area and we get to be one of many churches that He works through to accomplish His purposes.
Physically Relevant~ A place of refuge, noted by victims of the flood, our city and even the State Representatives and Governor. It is clear that we serve as a place for refuge during catastrophic moments in our town history. Beyond that we distribute 2 tons of food per week through our Food Bank and provide clothing for many through the clothing share program.
Purposefully Relevant~ We help people in other ways also. We have been equipped to teach, train and prepare people for life. Through our Five Year Plan (5YP) we are intentionally living out the directions of the Bible as we view them through the 8 Core Values (8CV) of First Baptist Church.
We believe Jesus makes it possible to LIVE an abundant life and He is the HOPE for our community
We believe Jesus makes it possible to LIVE an abundant life and He is the HOPE for our community, our families, and our church family. We then choose to Live Hope!
