The mission of First Baptist Church Morrison is to develop Christian growth, individually and corporately, through the emphasizing and implementation of three major mandates: Ministry, Music, and Missions. Through our worship services, programs, and supporting auxiliary ministries, we seek to fulfill these mandates.
The vision of FBCM is to glorify God in all that we do, by maintaining a corporate body of disciples who continually strive to be the focal point of humanity for all of Newport News and surrounding cities. We achieve this by promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and demonstrating His love by providing a place where healing and communal support is available to all who seek the promises of God.
Experience a real God for your real life. You don't have to have it all figured out before you come to Him. God loves you right where you are, and we want our church to be a place where you truly experience His love.
Connect in relationship with God and others. We believe life is meant to be lived in close community with our Creator and the ones He created. Our focus is on helping you connect with and grow closer to God so that you might connect with and grow closer to our community of believers.
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.
