What We Believe
The following is a list of the values that guide our ministry. By reminding us of what is important, they serve to remind us to do the right thing the right way.
We believe the Bible is God’s Word to man, is the final Word on all of mankind’s questions and needs, and that it should be the foundation of all we do.
We believe that the primary need of people is to be reconciled to God through Jesus Christ and that this need should be at the core of all we do for people.
We believe in personal ministry and are committed to ministering to the spiritual, physical, emotional, and relational needs of our members and our community.
We believe that it is essential that each member of the First Baptist Church of Pryor be personally involved in ministry and missions in Pryor and beyond in order for God’s vision for our church to be accomplished.
We believe that life-changing worship occurs when we acknowledge the holiness and greatness of God and seek to honor Him through our private and corporate expressions of praise and adoration.
We believe that small group ministries should create a safe environment where people can love and be loved, serve and be served, equip and be equipped through the application of God’s Word, personal ministry-centered relationships, and voluntary accountability.
We believe that the best way to teach God’s Word is through faithful, systematic exposition that applies its timeless truths in relevant ways to everyday life.
The Next Generation
We believe the future of our church is our youth and children and are committed to providing them with godly training, programs, and experiences.
We believe that missions is at the very heart of God and strongly support missions, primarily through a strong commitment to the Cooperative Program of the SBC.
