Our Mission & Vision

The mission of First Baptist Church is to Exalt the Lord’s Name through meaningful worship, Extend the Lord’s Invitation through relational evangelism, and Equip the Lord’s People through the solid teaching of God’s Word and intentional training for service.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.

Pastor Justin, his wife Lynsey, and their four kids moved from Alaska to find warmer weather.  Justin and Lynsey had always talked about moving to Oregon and watched as God worked to redirect them into church ministry and move them to Oregon.  Pastor Justin is excited about working with youth, and connecting them with their families who are the primary source of discipleship in their lives (Deuteronomy 6).  Pastor Justin loves sports and playing in the outdoors.  He is excited to see the entire church family support all its children.
