Welcome to First Baptist Church of Kissimmee. We are a caring family devoted to teaching the Bible and serving the world for Christ. Jesus Christ made it very clear in two Bible passages why the church should exist... "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. The second is like it, you shall love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 28:37-40 "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teach them to observe all that I command you." Matthew 28:19-20 In these two passages we find the five Purposes of the Church Worship - The church exists to worship God and that's how we love Him with all our hearts. Ministry - The church exists to minister to others, demonstrating Gods love to others by meeting their needs and healing their hurts in the name of Jesus Christ. Evangelism - The church exists to communicate God's Word. It is every Christian's responsibility to tell the world of His death on the cross, His resurrection and His promise to return for His children. Fellowship - The church exists to help provide fellowship for believers, calling them not just to believe, but to belong. Baptism is not only a symbol of salvation, but also a symbol of fellowship. It visualizes a person's incorporation into the body of Christ. Discipleship - The church exists to educate God's people. Discipleship is the process of helping people become more like Christ in their thoughts, feelings and actions. We at First Baptist Kissimmee, believe that a total commitment to the Great Commandment and the Great Commission will build a Great Church. We encourage you to join us in this endeavor by becoming a part of our body. We are all joined together in the love of God to be a visible expression of the head of our church, Jesus Christ.
