We believe that the main purpose of any true biblical church is to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to "every creature." We can accomplish our part of the Great Commission as we preach the Word, reach out to those in Kansas City, and support other churches and missionaries in America and around the world [Acts 1:8].
First Baptist has been in existence for over 85 years and while others have followed the fads and appeal of the latest ideas, we are still preaching the same message from the same old blessed Book! We still use the great old hymns and songs that have blessed souls down through the ages. We still preach against sin while seeking the lost. The Bible declares that "for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God" [Romans 3:23]. Yet God so loved the world that "while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" [Romans 5:8]. You see when God saw that no man could ever pay the price of his sin debt, Jesus died, "the Just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God" [1Peter 3:18]. By shedding His precious blood on the cross, Jesus made peace between sinful man and holy God [Ephesians 2:11-19]. The Bible says, "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved” [Romans 10:9].
