Our Mission & Vision

 

The covenant of First Baptist Church of Galva is as follows:

As we have been led by the Holy Spirit to receive Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, and on our profession of faith, have been baptized by immersion in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we do now in the presence of God and His Church, most sincerely and joyfully enter into a covenant relationship with God and one another.

 

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
