Our vision is being the presence of Christ in the world.
Bible Freedom – We believe in the authority of Scripture.
We believe the Bible, under the Lordship of Christ, is central to the life of the individual and the church.
Soul Freedom – We believe in the priesthood of all believers.
We affirm the freedom and responsibility of every person to relate directly to God without the imposition of creed or the control of clergy or government.
Every believer and every church is responsible for sharing the Gospel with all people.
We want to enable believers and churches to work cooperatively with other Great Commission Christians to activate this global missions calling in their communities and throughout the world.We are committed to discovering and providing resources that will empower people to fulfill their mission in their particular contexts and will equip individuals to fulfill their calling under the Lordship of Christ.We prefer to cooperate in mutually beneficial ways with other organizations rather than to establish, own, and control our own institutions.Our church is affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, affirms the Baptist Faith and Message of 1963, and provides worship and leadership opportunities that include all congregants, regardless of age, gender or race.First Baptist Church is the oldest established church in High Point, dating back to its founding in Jamestown in 1825.We are affiliated nationally with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, a fellowship of thousands of Baptist churches who celebrate and value historic Baptist principles.
