Who We Are

The First Baptist Church of Merritt Island has had a presence and a name in our community for 70 years.

Our FIRST love is Jesus Christ, and our FIRST priority is to the sharing of the gospel of Christ. We are a church committed to the great commission, first to the community around us, then to our county, our state, and then to the world at large.

Who We Are is represented by these core values.

Active Faith 
"And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him."
Hebrews 11:6

Uncompromised Truth
"Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth."
John 17:17

Passionate Unity
"I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace."
Ephesians 4:1-3

Extravagant Grace
"And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work."
2 Corinthians 9:8 

Humble Service 
"Truly, truly, I say to you, a servant is not greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them."
John 13:16-17
