About the Church

Foothills Baptist Church

Love God. Love others. Gather. Grow. Go. Who are we? What is this all about? We are a local body of believers in Jesus Christ who strive to love God and to love others as we gather together to worship, as we grow in earnest discipleship, and as we go — to the ends of the earth, to Uganda, to Mexico, to Denver, to Joplin, or even across the street — as we go forth together to proclaim the name of Jesus. Love God. Love others. Gather. Grow. Go.
