Our Mission & Vision

The purpose of First Baptist Church of Basehor is to reach Leavenworth County and the surrounding areas for Jesus Christ, and help men, women, boys, and girls grow in their relationship with Jesus.

18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:18-20 (NIV)

THIS WE BELIEVE-We believe the Bible is the Inspired, Inerrant and always Relevant Word of the Living God.


-We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God, was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life on this earth, died a sacrificial death on the Cross, rose triumphantly from the grave, ascended gloriously into Heaven, and shall come again visibly, bodily, royally, and victoriously.

-We believe that all outside of Christ are dead in sin and salvation is only in God’s son, Jesus Christ.

-We believe that God still saves and changes lives.

-We believe that real, genuine Spiritual Awakening will come when God’s people meet God’s requirements of prayer, confession of sin, and holy living.

-We believe that Baptism by immersion is an outward sign of the inward change.

-We believe in the local church, God’s called out ones, dedicated to the Great Commission and Discipleship.


Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
