Welcome to First Baptist Church of Safford

Christ left us two commands and a commission.

The commands are:

  • to love God completely and
  • to love our neighbors as ourselves.

The commission is to make disciples of all peoples.

At First Baptist Church of Safford, we are all about obeying Jesus!

We are a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching church.
