What is our mission and values in light of what God has done for us in Christ Jesus?
We exist to love God, to serve others and to equip disciple-makers.
We understand this mission as three relationships: our relationship to God, our relationship to other Christians, and our relationship to the world.
The three verbs in our mission statement (love, serve, equip) directly correlate with these three relationships. Thus, when we speak of "ministry" at First Baptist Enid we think in terms of relationships, rather than simply tasks.
It is our goal that the various ministries of First Baptist Enid would do just that: reach out in every direction and every relationship. It is our prayer that the Lord Jesus Christ would find us faithfully and actively loving Him, serving one another, and reaching out to the lost world with His gospel as we anxiously await His return.
We believe that our mission is accomplished as we hold fast to our values of:
Submitting to the authority of Scripture
Living as Christ lived
Serving as Christ served
Loving the local church
Being the church in our community
