First Baptist Church Skidmore is a theologically conservative Southern Baptist Church that has been faithfully serving Christ for 119 years. We hold the Word of God to be the center and foundation of everything we are and all that we do. It is our guide, our structure, from which we find our purpose and direction. The Word says in John 17:17, “Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.” You will find that evidenced in every class, every Bible study group, every mission organization, and in everything we do.
We are also a church full of love. Love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He is the reason for who we are and what we do. Because of that love for Christ, there is a genuine heartfelt love for people.
We are here to:
Glorify the Lord.
Grow in Christ.
Give unto the Lord.
Go tell others about Jesus Christ .
