First Baptist Church of Altavista
Faith Community Mission
Spiritual Formation of the individual believer is a priority at First Baptist Church. We believe it is important that each follower of Jesus engage in both individual and corporate study in order to learn what the scriptures say to us about our relationship with God through Jesus Christ and to develop spiritual disciplines that help us to live the Christian life.
The Sunday School at First Baptist Church provides a solid foundation for our efforts to grow as Christians. The Sunday School is primarily a time of Bible study and fellowship. The Sunday School is age-graded for the children and youth.
