First Steps

Life Steps

Loving God, Loving Others,
Showing Others God's Love

Maybe you have visited Philadelphia Baptist a few times, or perhaps you have been attending for years…but now you feel that God wants you to take that next step in following Him. Whatever that step is, we are here to help.

At Philadelphia Baptist Church we desire to help everyone live out our mission: Loving God, Loving Others, Showing Others God’s Love.  You'll see these words again and again at PBC as you grow and take Life Steps.

How do we do begin living out that mission?

It all begins with Christ.

Salvation. New life. Saved from death. It's about your desire and belief in Jesus Christ.


Have you indeed decided to follow Jesus?  The Bible contains both good news and bad news.  First, let’s look at the bad news.

We are all sinners.

Romans 3:23 tells us, “For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”  We have all come short of God’s standard of perfection. The penalty for sin is death. Romans 6:23 says, “For the wages of sin is death…”  What we earn from our sin is death. We deserve to die and be separated from God forever.

But here is the good news:

Christ died for you.

Romans 5:8 tells us, “But God demonstrates His love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” The Bible says Jesus took the penalty that we deserved for sin, placed it upon Himself, and died in our place.

You can have life.

Romans 10:9 says, “If you confess with your mouth, ’Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”

The profession of your faith in Jesus and what He has done for you is your first step into the new life He freely offers to anyone who will receive. If you would like to talk to someone about giving your life to Jesus today, please call us and speak with any minister at (318)442-0754 or email the church office at
