Who We Are

Our Purpose

“Christ in you, the hope of glory”—this Scripture from Colossians 1:27, captures the essence of what we are all about here at First Baptist Church of Arlington, Washington. If you visit First Baptist you will see this verse displayed in the front of our worship center. The purpose of all of our ministries is to introduce people to Jesus Christ who died for their sins and offers them forgiveness and eternal life encouraging them to place their faith in Him as their Savior and God. When one expresses such faith, Christ enters into that person—“Christ in you”—and they become a new person. But “Christ in you” is also “the hope of glory,” and we are seeking to prepare folk for that glory which speaks of a glorious place as well as a glorious existence throughout the eternal ages.

If you have opportunity, come and join with us as we seek to make “Christ in you, the hope of glory” a meaningful, daily reality.

Awaiting our soon-coming Savior—“Our Hope of Glory,”

Pastor Bill Walker
