Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church is a family in Christ with members of all ages, the majority of whom are between the ages 18 and 75. We are students, teachers, software designers, doctors, lawyers, cooks, stay-at-home moms, and retirees. We work in retail, construction, hospitals and all kinds of professional settings. We are brought together out of our desire to have a relationship with God and a desire to know Him better. We hang out together, worship together and learn together. Our Mission is that we reach out to seeking friends as we become committed, caring followers of Jesus Christ.
There is no set pattern or formula for what Vancouver Avenue First Baptist Church is, and we are as diverse as the people who gather here. Vancouver Avenue Church is, essentially, a family created by God and who are striving to know Him more.
“I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength, which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills everything in every way.”
