Who We Are

Our Mission

Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. ― Colossians 1:28

We proclaim Christ through the expository preaching of God’s Word, verse-by-verse through books of the Bible. He is the supreme focus of our worship through discipleship, Small Groups, and the various ministries throughout our fellowship. We warn everyone and teach everyone because the truth of the Gospel is for everyone from the youngest to the oldest. This is accomplished with all the wisdom found in the whole counsel of God. Our goal, then, is to present everyone mature in Christ—to know Him and grow in Him until the day we see Him face to face.

I invite you to join us as we seek to know Jesus and make Him known!

Our History

First Baptist Church is a non-denominational Bible-believing church. The original church building was purchased for the newly organized First Conservative Baptist Church of Arlington, Washington in 1961. Since then, God has continued to bless our fellowship with strong Bible teaching, a heart for Missions, and love for the saints.
