Our Mission & Vision

Make disciples.  That what Jesus told us to do (Matthew 28:19-20). We exist to make disciples who:

Love God

“Teacher, which command in the law is the greatest?” He said to him, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” Matthew 22:36–37

Love One Another

“I give you a new command: Love one another. Just as I have loved you, you must also love one another. By this all people will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

Love the World

“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.  John 3:16


Love God. Love One Another. Love the World. This is our mission. Our values. Our strategy. It’s just that simple.


What we believe:

Our basic biblical beliefs are explained in The Baptist Faith and Message, adopted by the Southern Baptist Convention
on June 14, 2000.

Where Can I Serve?

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Baptist Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads overseas to every nation. First Baptist members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as assisting with lawn mowing, to preparing for ministry fellowships.  

Mission Outreach

First Baptist Church is thrilled to be part of the spread of God’s kingdom around the world. We are active in sending missionaries and supporting these missionaries with our money and with our prayers. Each year, a small team from our church travels to different countries to assist our Southern Baptist missionaries in practical projects and evangelistic outreach. We encourage all of our people to respond to God’s call for laborers, whether it means that they move to a foreign country or live and minister in our own community.  

Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Baptist Church, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.  

Ushers & Security Teams

The usher and security teams at First Baptist Church fill an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. These teams are a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.  

Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of First Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook for additional church communication.  

Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God.  First Baptist Church is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Wednesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.  

Kids Own Worship

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Baptist Church offers a Kids Own Worship service in conjunction with our Sunday morning service. This special time gives kids grades PreK – 3rd grade more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly KOW team have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.

How Do I Meet People?

First Baptist Church is not a place for spectators. It is a place for team members. Whether you are a five-year old child, a ninety-five year old grandmother, a busy mom, or a businessman with big responsibilities, we want you to be a part of our vibrant church community. Here is how you can learn, serve, and grow at FBC Shallotte.

Small Group

Often, small groups of people are better able to interact and learn about the Bible than larger groups are. For that reason, First Baptist has small bible studies that meet throughout the Education Building. The size of the group is anywhere from six to twelve. At a time, designated by your group, you can participate in the small group study.

Children & Youth

Each Sunday morning, children get to participate in their own classes. Bible lessons are taught in such a way that every child gets to participate and learn. Each of the class teachers is carefully screened and thoroughly trained in children’s instruction. The youth ministry of First Baptist Church is recognized for their close interaction.

Young Adults

Life can get complicated once you cross that nebulous threshold into adulthood. There are complicated decisions. Bigger stakes. Serious relationships. And a whole lot more decisions. The young adult group of First Baptist provides a welcoming atmosphere for college and early-career aged young people.

Women’s Group

FBC Shallotte Women’s Groups gives the ladies in our church family special times of interaction. Our women’s groups are times of Bible study, prayer (and, of course, food). This ministry provides a refreshing discipleship opportunity for the women in the church.

Men’s Ministry

We are here to inspire and equip men to know the Word, teach it, and faithfully follow Christ as husbands, fathers, and friends. Times for prayer, Bible study, encouragement, and accountability are offered throughout the week.

Married Couples

Even though marriage is one of the most important institutions, it is the one which is under the most attack–internally and externally. First Baptist Church gives married couples the opportunity to join four-month long marriage classes ranging on topics from Marriage and Money, Getting Ready for Kids, Shepherding Children and Blending Families.

Over 50’s

Once you get past fifty, the fun has just begun. Whether retired, just plain tired, or active as ever, the over-50 group of First Baptist provides refreshment, ministry, and times of valuable interaction.

Media Resources

Our aim is to make this website resourceful, so we have included links to the most requested information and media.  If you are unable to find it here, please call our Main Office and our friendly staff will assist you.
