Our Vision

Our vision is to equip each member of First Baptist Church of Silvis with a solid, core, Christian ethic built firmly upon the entire Canon of Scripture. This ethic, consisting primarily in Jesus' response to a questioning lawyer, is that:

"You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.' This is the great and foremost commandment. The second is like it, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' On these two commandments depend the whole Law and the Prophets." - Matthew 22:37-40
This ethic is designed to enable each member to become more efficient in thinking and living-especially as it relates to applying Christian ethics as family members, friends, employees, and employers, and citizens-in order that we may shine as radiant lights in this dark world.
