Since 1907, First Baptist has had a positive impact in the community of Vernon and sending others around the world with the good news of Jesus. 

We are a family committed to worshipping, teaching, serving, giving and sharing our faith in Jesus Christ.


Our Purpose

The Church exists to glorify God and fulfill the will of God according to His Word by enabling God’s people to love and serve the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, strength and mind and their fellow human beings as themselves.

As the family of first Baptist, we not only embrace our diversity, but we desire to welcome those who long for a church home where they can belong.
It doesn’t what your background is, what your cultural heritage is; you are loved, you are welcome here!
It doesn’t matter what your economic status is, if you have much, or if you have little, you are loved, you are welcome.
It doesn’t matter how old you are, whether you are a child of boundless energy, or getting older, or somewhere in-between, you are loved, you are welcome.
It doesn’t matter what abilities you have, no matter what your physical or mental health status is, you are loved, you are welcome.
It doesn’t matter if you have lived long with faith… although that is wonderful, or if you are seeking for answers and truth, you are loved, you are welcome.
We can bring it all to Jesus, our brokenness, our questions, our grief, and we are loved. We are welcome.
— Rev. Grace Wulff (from her sermon May 6, 2018)
