Mission & Vision

Go therefore and make disciples...

The Mission

The mission of First Baptist Church of Luling is the same mission Jesus gave his followers: Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. 

foundational values

Christ the Center

Jesus Christ stands as the foundation and aim of our church (Eph. 2:13–22). His perfect life, death, resurrection and ascension achieved the redemption that we could not earn on our own. He is the defining identity of each Christian, and He is the focus of our message to one another and to the world.

Intentional Community

Christ saved us and grafted us into his body, the Church. As members of the body of Christ, we strive to live together with the aim of encouraging one another in Christ, holding each other accountable in order that we all might grow in the image of Christ (Col. 3:12–16; Heb. 10:24–25).

Great Commission Mindset

We have not been saved to focus only inwardly. Each Christian is commissioned as an ambassador for Christ, so we are committed to carrying out the Great Commission in a manner that reflects the sacrificial love of Christ (Matt. 28:18–20; Acts 2:42–47).
