James 1:27 (NIV)

27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.

Romans 10:13-15 ESV

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Our aim is to do according to the Word of God.  First Baptist provides spiritual and physical support to the needy on a local and international basis.  

On the third Saturday of each month, our food pantry is open to residents of Claremont, Spring Grove, Cabin Point and surrounding area.

We also provide monthly support to the Home of Love Orphanage, located in Tororo, Uganda.  If you would like more information about the children we support, please click on the following link:   Home of Love.  Donations are always welcomed.
