Ministries

At Apex First Baptist Church, we as Christian believers join together as a congregation to accomplish the mission and purpose God has given the church. Our ministries focus on several different areas:

  • Out-Reach: The church reaching out to those outside the church. (Evangelism, Missions)
  • In-Reach: The church reaching in to those inside the church. (Encouragement, Fellowship)
  • Up-Reach: The church reaching up by communicating and giving to God. (Praising, Prayer, Worship)
  • Down-Reach: God reaching down by communicating and giving to the church. (Bible Study, Preaching, Teaching, the Holy Spirit)
  •  

All of these relationships work together in balance and are necessary for the other to function properly.
