Our Statement

First Baptist Church Glenpool

The church in the heart of the city with a heart for the city.

 

We purpose to work together to love God and others, to make disciples that make disciples and to share the message of salvation wherever we go.

 

4 Scriptures That Guide Us

The Great Commission - Matthew 28:18-20 - "Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

The Great Commandment - Matthew 22:36-40 - "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" Jesus replied: "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments."

Acts 1:8 - "But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."

Acts 2:42-47 - "And they devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to the followship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. And awe came upon every soul and many wonders and signs were being done through the apostles. And all who believed were together and had everything in common. They were selling their possessions and giving to everyone as they had need. Day by day they attended the temple together and broke bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and having the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
