But he giveth more grace.
Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud,
But giveth grace unto the humble.
— James 4:6


Sunday School

Sunday School is an opportunity to read, study, and discuss the Bible with others. We offer special Sunday School programming specific to different age groups: Nursery, Pre-school / Kindergarten, Grades 1-2, Grades 3-4, Grades 5-6, Teens, and Adults.

Bus Ministry

We believe that transportation shouldn't limit someone from being able to attend church. For this reason, a dedicated member of our church launched Bus Ministry. Need a ride? Call 330-483-3274.

Music Ministry

Some members of First Baptist Church feel called to lead the congregation in worship through music. We embrace all types of Christian music, from bluegrass to traditional hymns and everything in between.


We believe...

1. We believe the whole Bible from Genesis 1:1 through Revelation 22:21, as the verbally inspired and infallible Word of God. We use only the Authorized King James Version to preach and teach from.

2. We believe Jesus Christ was born of Mary the Virgin, and is the Son of God, and God the Son.

3. We believe Jesus Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, the Just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God.

4. We believe that He arose from the dead the third day according to the Scriptures.

5. We believe that He is the only Great High Priest, and we need not the intercession of man, but that Christ ever liveth to make intercession for us.

6. We believe that Christ will come again in person - bodily, visibly - to establish His kingdom on earth.

7. We believe that in order to be saved, the soul must be born again.

Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.
— John 3:3
