About us

This year our church's vision is "20/20 Vision." We are seeking to draw near to God by asking and thinking big things, knowing that God is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think. 

It is our prayer that 2020 would be a year of spiritual renewal and revival. As we ask and think big things from God, we can step back and see what God will do in us and through us. May it be a year where we, as a church, become stronger and healthier and glorify our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Our theme verse is Ephesians 3:20-21, "Now to Him who is able to do above and beyond all that we ask or think - according to the power that works in you - to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen." 

our pastor:

Pastor Josh Palma grew up in Moorhead, Minnesota under the care of godly parents, where he placed his faith in Christ at a young age. Pastor Josh graduated from Faith Baptist Bible College and Theological Seminary in Ankeny, Iowa. He received his B.A. in Biblical Studies in 2009, followed by his Master of Divinity in 2012. It was during his time at Faith that Josh met his wife, Lindsay, and they were married in 2011. 

Pastor Josh and Lindsay began serving at First Baptist Church in January 2019. They have two daughters and one son.
