The Mission

The mission of the First Baptist Church DeKalb is taken directly from Matthew 28:18-20. “Then Jesus came to them and said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’”

Our  Values

Gospel Transformation
People changed by the gospel are the central mission of Jesus, and are therefore our greatest cause. We demonstrate gospel transformation by focusing our time and resources on preaching the gospel message to people in our circles of influence everyday.

Relentless Love
Relentless and sacrificial love is Jesus’ conduit for the gospel, so we love people like He does. We demonstrate relentless love by our efforts to love those in our circles of influence, no matter what.

Hands-On Service
Service is the posture of biblical Christianity in the world, so we seek to serve others in practical ways. We demonstrate hands-on service by our consistent efforts to serve others, getting our hands and feet dirty, to be a blessing. No strings attached.

Kingdom Partnership
The Holy Spirit is at work in the world through many gospel-centered churches and ministries, so we partner with others for maximum kingdom impact. We demonstrate kingdom partnership through our strategic partnership with families and in our cultivation of gospel partnerships in our circles of influence in the Bay Area and around the world.

Spirit and Truth Empowerment
We are empowered with the Holy Spirit and the authority of the Word of God for divine guidance and powerful impact in the world, so we walk in that power and guidance. We demonstrate Spirit and truth empowerment by expecting the Holy Spirit to work in power, and by our strict adherence to the truth and authority of the Scriptures in every aspect of our lives.
