Current Purpose Statement
  • The purpose of the First Baptist Church is to
    bring people to Jesus and to develop them to
    Christ-like maturity

8
Todays Situation The Problem
  • People feel disconnected
  • Worship styles are different
  • Leadership training is minimal
  • People are too busy to commit
  • Finances are under pressure
  • Evangelism and mission not a priority

9
How Did We Get Here?
  • Lost sight of our purpose and vision to reach it
  • Became program driven rather than purpose driven
  • Have not adapted to the changing needs of society

10
The Solution
  • Back to the basics of our founders and our roots
    same principles different methods
  • Purpose driven life gives us the same basic
    spiritual disciplines in a modern and structured
    package. It will help us return to effectiveness
    and unity in reaching our purpose.

Why we need to recapture our roots
  • God created each of us and our church for a
    purpose. We need to return to that purpose to
    make a difference in our own individual lives,
    and the lives of those we touch each and every
    day.
  • Because there really is a hell, and life is not a
    game, but preparation for eternity. What we do
    mattersforever.

Purpose Driven Life is back to our roots
