Our Mission


At the First Baptist Church of Rowley, our only mission is to do our best to follow the Great Commission: 


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.”


Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)

Our Preeminent Sovereign Lord

Colossians 1:15-20

In this awe inspiring passage of Scripture, Paul presents to the Colossian church the preeminent sovereign Lord of Creation, Jesus Christ. Mark delves in Paul's words to show preeminence of Christ over all of Creation - from visible to invisible, from on the Earth to below and beyond the Earth, from start to finish.
