Ministries

Ministry at First Baptist Church in Eaton Rapids is about serving and equipping people in their own love and service to the Lord

The ministries of First Baptist Church are focused on this goal of equipping people to be transformational and provide a practical place to carry it out. In a large church worship setting is easy to get lost in the crowd, so it is in these smaller more intimate settings where relationships are developed and God's people can walk side by side with each other, encouraging, challenging and helping each other become the people God has called us to be.
