IS TO GLORIFY GOD THROUGH A FIVE-FOLD PURPOSE TO:
“Through Christ, God made peace between us and himself. Then God gave us the work of bringing others into PEACE with him.” (ICB) 2 Corinthians 5:18
Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."
In November 2000, Pastor Bill Stevenson and his wife Vicki answered a Pastoral call from Virgin Valley Baptist Church which was to be reorganized as First Baptist Church of Mesquite (FBC) as Senior Pastor. During this time of beginning our Services were held in the Virgin Valley Mortuary as we looked for more permanent space. On Easter Sunday, 2001 FBC held our grand opening at 114 Sandhill Boulevard which would allow for growth.
Under God’s direction and Pastor Bill’s leadership, the church became a very active, growing church which resulted in multiple worship services on Sunday and many lay ministries. The motto for FBC has been “Serving God by Serving the Community” and that has continued to be the driving force behind our growth.
In June of 2005 FBC moved to our current location; 700 Hardy Way. The church has continued to grow and minister to the community through 32 plus ministries serving the community and kingdom of Christ (i.e. Free Medical Equipment, Christian Counseling Services, In touch Ministry, Prayer Ministry, Small Group ministries, etc)
In 2009, FBC added Pastor Billy Montgomery (wife Leslee) as Administrative Pastor to oversee the administration of the church. Pastor Billy’s heart has been encouraging our congregation to make prayer a priority; he leads our “sweet hour of prayer on Wednesday nights and actively participates in our men’s Bible Study.
As we continue to grow we see God’s hand in our ministry here in Mesquite. On Easter Sunday 2019 we saw record attendance in our services.
In April 2020, in the midst of a world-wide pandemic and quarantine, God expanded our staff at FBC by adding Pastor Justin Mosher as our Associate Pastor. Brother Justin, as he is also called, joins us with his wife Lindsay and daughters Blythe (13) and Phoebe (10). Justin spent the last eleven years ministering in Hannibal, Missouri. He received his B.A. in History from the University of Missouri-Rolla. and his Master’s of Divinity degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. Justin will be coordinating discipleship and online ministries for FBC, teaching Sunday Bible Study, and assisting in various other ministries.
In December of 2021 Pastor Billy Mongumery retired and became a Pastor Emertus. However he and his wife Leslee still sponsor Wedsday night prayer meetings at the church.
In January 2022 the Church moved into a much larger building at 830 Haven lane after nearly a year of remodling the building.
