First Baptist Church exists to experience God through following Christ, Becoming like Him, and committing to share God's love. We are a strong Bible-based congregation of about 60 members with an average Sunday service attendance of 45. While over time our membership has declined and is aging, we aspire to grow our membership with new members and young families.
We are prayerfully and actively searching for our next Pastor. We are seeking a Pastor who is led by the Holy Spirit and a Pastor who God has chosen to lead a congregation of faithful believers, church leaders and a multigenerational congregation. The Pastor will be guided by the biblical principles in 1 Timothy 3:1-7 and Titus 1:5-9.

First Baptist is located on the direct center of Nebraska. The area is a bit old-fashioned in its traditions but is strong in family, country, hunting, farming, and ranching. Our church was founded in 1870 and remains an important part of the community.
Education: While education is important the ability to lead, serve and present the gospel to the flock is priority. Pastoral experience preferred. While we are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches of Nebraska, we would be open to receive inquiries and applications from candidates who are outside the Baptist denomination..
