What a Website Can Say

I don't know about you, but I think websites say a lot about organizations. In today's world, people do research online before checking out restaurants, schools, churches. And so a website is often the first introduction you get to a church. And, as the saying goes, you never get a second chance to make a first impression. I get that. And that's why launching this new website is such an exciting new step in the life of our church. It's been on my priority to-do list ever since I was invited to join the PR committee at First Baptist because our previous website just didn't convey who we are or what we're about. One of our core values is hospitality, and we want that to be reflected when you visit our website as well as our building. 

We hope you find our new site welcoming, accessible, and easy to use. We hope you find evidence of the community, relationships, and dialogue we take pride in at First Baptist. We hope you find an emphasis on spiritual growth, worship, and service in our community. And location matters. When our city experienced population flight years ago, we could have followed. But we made the decision to stay put, to serve our city, and to help make it a better place. And look around - Memphis is thriving, and we're glad to be a part of what's going on. 

We partner with Levitt Shell, just across the street to our west in Overton Park, to help them build community with 50 free outdoor concerts each year. We partner with Caritas Village, Rachel's Kids, and others to serve the Binghampton community to our east, where a federal grant from the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program is helping that community thrive. And that's just what's happening on the immediate borders our church property. 

Use our website to get to know us. Get to know our history, our values, our staff, our members. Read our blogs - we'll be posting twice a week, once from a minister and once from a lay person. Connect with us on Facebook and Twitter. Check out our events page and join us. We are a Midtown congregation for all of Memphis.
