Who We Are
First Baptist Church of Shawnee was organized as a result
of a gospel crusade meeting in September, 1940.
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.
Provide opportunities as a family of God to acknowledge His sovereignty, celebrate our salvation in Christ, fellowship together and respond faithfully to Him.
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.
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.
The original group of church members chose the scripture motto that has been the theme of the church for its life time.
