Sale Creek First Baptist Church’s purpose is to glorify God, and our mission it to make disciples of Jesus Christ. While our purpose and mission can be accomplished outside the physical walls of the church, it is so much easier to function in these endeavors when we can corporately worship together live. The burning question each of us asks is when will be able to worship together again live?

With a strong desire to be sensitive to the suggestions of our State and local leaders as well as the safety and emotions of our congregation, our staff and deacons are continually monitoring new information and working through a reopening plan.
