This year we have been blessed with new members who have completed the Inquirers’ membership class. Visitors who come in are amazed at the friendliness and warm welcome they receive when they visit First Baptist. Our friendly and welcoming atmosphere has encouraged many to make First Baptist their church home. Visitors have also been impressed by our church’s rich diversity. It has truly been a blessing for me to serve as the Welcome Minister of First Baptist Church. The Inquirers’ has provided prospective members a rich Christian education which forms a great Christian foundation which has served them well while seeking membership at First Baptist Church.
