About First Missionary Baptist Church
First Missionary Baptist Church was founded in 1910 in the mining community of Acmar.
First Missionary Baptist Church is experiencing exciting growth both spiritually
and physically. We are actively ministering to the needs of the residents of Moody, Alabama
and surrounding communities. We have many vibrant ministries that are designed to meet
the needs of existing members while seeking to lead others to Christ. Great things are
happening at FMBC and we invite you to be a part of a church that is on the move!
This congregation is a local body of the Universal Christian Church founded on faith in
Jesus Christ. Our purposes are to entrust ourselves to fellow Christians (fellowship), to
accept our call to ministry (ministry), to evangelize those without a right relationship with
God through Jesus Christ (evangelism), to better equip those who have a right
relationship with God through Jesus Christ (discipleship), and to exalt and praise
Almighty God (worship)! The Mission of First Missionary Baptist Church is to be a Christ
Centered Church, ministering to the whole man, Mentally, Spiritually, and Physically. We
aim to develop families of faith, evangelize the lost, and stir up the gifts that are within
us, using Matthew 28: 19 as a guide to Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.
Becoming the church local that restores faith in the church universal!
What We Believe
- We believe there is only one true and living God. He is unchanging and undefeatable. He is God the Father,
God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit
We believe in the power and presence of the Holy Spirit, who guides, comforts, and empowers us to live out our faith and share the love of Christ with the world.
We believe in the Holy Scripture as the infallible and inspired Word of God, guiding us in our faith and shaping
our lives to honor and serve Him.
We believe in Salvation. Our church believes in the transformative power of God's grace and that through Salvation,
we are called to live a life of service and love towards others.
We believe that Baptism is an essential act of faith, symbolizing the washing away of sin and the new life found
in Christ, and we are committed to facilitating and celebrating this sacrament in our church family.
We believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. Through His sacrifice and grace, we are called to live lives
dedicated to serving others and spreading His love to all.
We believe in the Church as a community of believers, united in Christ's love and committed to spreading His
message of hope, forgiveness, and salvation to all people.
We believe in Virgin Mary. We affirm our faith in the Virgin Birth of Christ, which testifies to His divinity
and our hope of salvation through Him.
We believe in following Christ's example by giving back to our community and those in need. Through service,
generosity, and compassion, we strive to make a positive impact and share God's love.
