Welcome to the Family
We are grateful to God for leading you and/or your family to make the choice to serve the Lord with joy and gladness as an integral part of the First Baptist Church of Manassas family.
We desire to labor along side you that we may, together, lay a common foundation of Christian faith, unfailing understanding and teaching to familiarize each new family member with First Baptist Church of Manassas and rich Christian doctrines.
Becoming a true Christian (disciple of Christ) is far more important than making perfunctory professions of faith with our lips or being saturated with water baptism without faith or partaking in gluttonous feast as a shallow form of Holy Communion. Your true profession, baptism, and Communion indwell us with God’s Holiness and true power when you become a true Disciple of Christ in spirit and in truth.
