What is the purpose of the campaign?

Over the past decade First Baptist Church Hayden has  reached over 500 new members, but failed to accommodate these new members with adequate ministry space.  In order to continue to effectively reach our growing community we need to expand our facilities.   The plan is to build a multi-purpose center which will provide space for up to 600 in worship, as well as create a fantastic environment for church-wide fellowships and community events.  We also plan to renovate our existing auditorium into a student center, build a children’s educational wing, and create a large gathering space which will serve as a connecting artery for the entire church campus.


How will building help us reach our community for Christ?

Our new facilities will create more space for worship, classrooms for children’s education, a brand new nursery space, areas perfect for church fellowship and outreach, newly renovated space for youth ministry, all of which will be attractive to people living in our community.  Ultimately this will allow us to be even more effective in sharing the gospel and preparing those reached by our ministries to be change agents in our community.


How will we pay for this?

We believe wholeheartedly that God has given us a vision to reach the lost in Hayden, the surrounding areas, as well as impact the world.  We have faith that our First Baptist Church family will rise to the challenge God has set before us.  With His provision and our sacrificial giving, we will reach our goals and build facilities that will help us lead the way for future generations.
