Why? 

First Baptist is a community of faith who seek to glorify the Lord by loving HIM, loving others, and developing mature followers of Jesus Christ. Simply stated, we exists to have a passion for God and compassion for people. As a result, we know that God is honored and glorified. Our logo reminds us of the reason for our existence and purpose.
The Cross
 

As you look at the logo you will immediately recognize what is central–the cross. In everything we do we know that Christ Himself and the Gospel is central to our identity. When the cross is central to our life we will love God, love one another, and faithfully work to produce biblical disciples.

Blue

You’ll notice the two colors. Blue represents life and living water. In John 4 and in John 7 we see that Jesus offers living water to all who will respond to him. Those who do repsond in faith, the text says that living water will flow from their hearts. We want to be a people who share Christ; who share the eternal life that is found in Him alone. 

It also represents our baptism. Through Baptism we publicly proclaim that we are followers of Christ and He is Lord. Not only is Baptism an issue of obedience, it also reminds us that He is Lord and thus we live obediently to Him.

 

Green

 

As a result of experiencing eternal life in Christ through faith we are reminded of the call to follow Him too. That is what the Green represents. As faithful followers of Christ we are called to grow in our faith and GO! (2 Peter 3:18, John 15, Matthew 28:18-20, Acts 1:8) We are called to live life in a such a way that we live out the Gospel through word and deed in our communities.

But it doesn’t end there. We are called to go to the ends of the earth to share the Good News of Christ with those who haven’t heard. For believers, the call to grow and go is without question.
