About Benton First Baptist

Our Faith

Our Mission Statement

With Christ as our Head (Colossians 1:18), with the Holy Spirit to enable us (Galatians 5:16-26), and with God’s Word to guide us (II Timothy 3:16-17), we, the body of Christ (I Corinthians 12), seek to honor our Head through worship, praise and service (Romans 12:1-2). We determine to strengthen the body by our love for one another (I John 3:11-20, 4:7-12) and through discipleship (II Timothy 2:2) and prayer (Ephesians 6:18). Since the world is our field (John 3:16) and every person is our neighbor (Luke 10:25-37), we commit to grow our body by ministering to (Luke 4:18-19) and evangelizing people everywhere (Matthew 28:19-20).
