As a group of God's people we care about you and your family and we're here not only to feed you spiritually, but to help in any way we can. We love doing it and it's why we exist! Our purpose is to;
We commissioned as a church to proclaim the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ (Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:8) We are called to be faithful in sharing the gospel through word and deed. We promote the gospel and prepare our members to proclaim the gospel (1 Peter 3:15).
Our job as First Baptist church is to teach biblical doctrine so we can be grounded in our faith. Ephesians 4:14 tells us, “Then we will no longer be infants, tossed back and forth by the waves, and blown here and there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.”
First baptist church is a place of fellowship, where Christians can be devoted to one another and honor one another (Romans 12:10), instruct one another (Romans 15:14), be kind and compassionate to one another (Ephesians 4:32), encourage one another (1 Thessalonians 5:11), and most importantly, love one another (1 John 3:11).
We equip believers in Christ with the tools they need to overcome sin and remain free from the pollution of the world. This is done by biblical teaching and Christian fellowship.
On Sunday mornings all of the students/Young people and young at heart enjoy breakfast together and then we come together as one united youth family for our own youth service. Our desire is that that we have the freedom to worship and fellowship with a group of like minded friends.

First Baptist Athiriver is a place that promotes prayer, teaches prayer, and practices prayer. Philippians 4:6-7 encourages us, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
First Baptist church is a “lighthouse” in the community, pointing people toward our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
