MISSION AND VISION
First Baptist Church of El Dorado exists to “Dare nobly in communicating the commanding claims of Christ here and everywhere.”
When FBC celebrated its 100th Birthday – October 1945 – a church member printed the following prayer in the commemorative celebration booklet distributed for the occasion: “Bring to us a revived nobility of daring, that shall see us making known the commanding claims of Christ both here and everywhere.”
Based on this prayer and vision, five adjectives are used to describe the type of people First Baptist Church members strive to be:
We depend on the Spirit; seek to join where the Spirit is working; and point others to Jesus in the Spirit’s power.
We aim at showing the effects of the Gospel while voicing its truths.
We know we need each other in an effort to prevent sinful hardening of our hearts.
We know we are missionaries right here in El Dorado – everywhere we go and with everyone we encounter.
We believe Jesus is worth giving our time, money, and efforts so international darkness is penetrated.
First Baptist Church of El Dorado is a Southern Baptist Church. We believe and practice the articles contained in the Baptist Faith and Message 1963, which can be viewed here.
