Our Mission

The mission of First Baptist Church Morrison is to equip people to become fully devoted disciples of Jesus Christ in our community and beyond. 

Our Vision

The vision of First Baptist Church Morrison is to spiritually, socially, and economically impact the city of Newport News and beyond, with a Kingdom mindset and a Spirit of excellence. 

Our Values

Worshipping God

We believe that we should be Christ-centered in all we do. Our aim as a church is to point people to Jesus and to worship Him with all our lives. We believe that God wants us to be a church that takes calculated risks.  To be innovative, radical, and creative in our worship, evangelism, and life together.

Loving People

We believe the church should be a place of openness, honesty, and loving relationships. We want people to feel valued and respected as individuals, but also belong to a small group for mutual encouragement and support. We believe the church should reach beyond the walls of the building and into the community to love others with the compassion of Jesus Christ.

Serving the World

We believe that God has given all of us gifts to be used in His service. Ministry is therefore the responsibility of each person, and we encourage people to discover and use the gifts God has given them. We believe that we have a responsibility to serve God's world, locally and globally. We want to be people who serve the communities in which we live and work.

Our Beliefs

We believe that the gospel of Christ is the hope of the world, and it's the heart of the church to bring that hope to others. This belief is the foundation of our church and informs all we preach, teach, and practice.
