A Message From FBCM

Welcome to the website of First Baptist Church of Maricopa, Arizona. This congregation, begun in 1954, ministers to people of all ages in the Maricopa and Hidden Valley community areas. At First Baptist Church we love God as a family of faith – and we seek to share His love with others so they can experience a fulfilling life of hope.

Doctrinally, we believe that eternal salvation and the forgiveness of sin, as well as a meaningful life of joy and hope, are only found through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Jesus is the unique Son of God who died for mankind’s sin, bodily rose from the grave, ascended to the Father, and will one day return to earth to receive His followers unto Himself. Until He comes again, His church, (all Christians), are to live for Him by living lives of service and kindness toward all.

A church is part of God’s family where men, women, boys, and girls can be nurtured in their spiritual pilgrimages. We encourage each of you to become an active member of a church family close by.

If you live in the Maricopa area, or are passing this way, come be our guest for worship. The doors are open. The family is waiting. Come celebrate hope and life in Jesus Christ with us.
 
“Lord You have been our dwelling place
throughout all generations. Before the mountains were
born or you brought forth the earth and the world,
from everlasting to everlasting you are God.”
Pslam 90:1-2

Hello Friends and Family,

It is with great sadness that we here at First Baptist Church of Maricopa extend a heartfelt goodbye to Pastor Jim Johnson as he steps down as pastor of FBCM and moves on to the next chapter of his life. We have been so very blessed to have him at the pulpit for these past 15+ years. Sadly, though, he must now move on to see to his sweet wife, Miss Terry, who is struggling through the advanced stages of Alzheimer’s. All of our Prayers go with him as he walks through this terribly difficult season.

Oh, but our God is an Awesome God—and He had a beautiful plan in place for our church family long before we knew things were changing. So as we move forward…yet stay unashamedly the same in being true to God’s Word…we now have the honor and great joy, to welcome Kevin Treacy as our new Pastor, along with his beautiful wife, Colleen, and their three wonderful children. (Bio available soon)

The one thing that will never change here at First Baptist, is our endeavor to Glorify God in everything we do.  We will continue to Love God… Love Others… and Serve All.
