First Baptist Church of Amherst
A Disciple Making Church
Philosophy

Why do we do what we do?

Our main objective is simple: we want to see lives changed for the Glory of God and the way that happens is through relationship. First by a relationship with God and, secondly, through relationship with others.  Together our lives grow and change as we love God (Matthew 22:37) and love others (Matthew 22:39)


Keeping it Simple

We do not want to over-complicate those commands by creating a lot of church structure and rules. Through mutual encouragement and support guided by God's Spirit, we are learning how to apply God's love which is helping us be people who truly care.


Bottom Line

If you are looking for a place where you can take an honest spiritual journey, seek answers about life and God with people who will love and respect you, that's what we are all about. We teach and talk about what the Bible has to say because we believe it has the answers for this life and the next. We know that life is tough but we also know that faith in Jesus is the key.
