“BE ON GUARD. STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH. BE COURAGEOUS. BE STRONG.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 16:13

The Men’s Ministry at First Baptist exists to equip men of every generation into a closer walk with God, by empowering and training them to be spiritual leaders in their home, church, community, and workplace.

We provide various ways for you to build up others, meet vital needs, and express your God-given gifts and talents through our compassionate ministries and service projects. We believe that the body of Christ is stronger together, just as the whole body needs its parts. Our aim is to build a community of goldy men who are courageous defenders of the faith and sacrificial servants on mission for the Lord.

Our mission at BetterMan is to activate men’s lives to a “better” masculinity; one that lifts up others, builds up others, and gives life to others. This is the true masculinity God designed from the beginning for men to pursue. Our passion is to help men discover and implement that design by fostering a growing community of men who desire a better, more fulfilling life from our work, family, friends, marriages, and from our relationship with God.
