As described in our mission statement, First Baptist Church of Asheville is a “community of faith, centered on Jesus Christ and committed to his purposes in the world.” Those purposes include authentic freedom, caring friendship, and deepening faith, all of which grow from a vital connection with Jesus and his church.
To more fully become that kind of church, the Vision Implementation Team (VIT), in partnership with the ministers, the Deacons, and other lay-leaders, has developed a strategic plan which will shape our life and ministry together from the fall of 2009 through the summer of 2012. The congregation affirmed the primary areas of focus on June 21, 2009, and the Deacons approved the plan on September 14, 2009.
This plan is offered as a vision for a future to be claimed by our faithfulness to God and our partnership with one another. Our hope now is to engage and involve people throughout our community of faith by turning these dreams into deeds.
