Who We Are


First Baptist Church of Shawnee was organized as a result
 of a gospel crusade meeting in September, 1940.


Mission Statement

The church is the body of people who have accepted and experienced the love, truth and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.  Therefore, we believe God's mission for the First Baptist Church of Shawnee is to grow towards a total commitment to Jesus Christ and carry out His will through the avenues of worship, discipleship an evangelism.
 

Worship

Provide opportunities as a family of God to acknowledge His sovereignty, celebrate our salvation in Christ, fellowship together and respond faithfully to Him.

Discipleship

Designed to bring us to spiritual maturity in Christ through  learning the principles of God's Word, a supporting and caring fellowship, obedience to the Holy Spirit and transferring these to others.

Evangelism

Provides for outreach in meeting the needs of people in Christian love and intentionally sharing the gospel, leading them to a personal decision of accepting Christ as their Lord and Savior.


Scripture Motto

The original group of church members chose the scripture motto that has been the theme of the church for its life time.

If my people who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.
— 2 Chronicles 7:14
