One of my guiding verses in ministry is Colossians 1:28, "Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ." This verse holds the goal of all ministry: saved and spiritually mature people. The key is gospel teaching. That's why First Baptist Kids is a gospel-centered ministry designed to draw our children and their families into a faithful relationship with God in Jesus Christ. I hope you will visit with us!
