Stepping Out in Faith

First Baptist Church recently went through a process called ReFocusing which led our church family to come together and examine our rich heritage as well as guide us in determining God's will for our future. This process has helped us become more intentional and spontaneous in our ministry for Christ. ReFocusing was not intended to be an "end" but only springboard toward our tomorrows. As a result we have come up (so far) with five Task Force Teams that are functioning to carry out God's purposes. We would love for you to step into our fellowship and join us in this exciting process.

FBCOH Vision Statement:
First Baptist Church is a Christ-centered family of believers in the heart of Old Hickory
who are committed to reaching our diverse community for Christ by being His loving hands and feet.
