Through the church the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places.  
Ephesians 3:10

Our one supreme motivation
is that Christ would be made known.

This motivation drives everything we do at First Baptist.  

All things exist and are being worked according to the triune- God’s passion, pleasure, and plan (Ephesians 1:11), which is the demonstration of His own glory.

God creates, calls, rescues, redeems, saves, restores, restrains, and grants all to the end that He might be praised.

His desire, which He will surely fulfill, is that the knowledge of His glory would cover the earth as the waters do the sea (Habakkuk 2:14).
