We People Called Baptists
There are many different Baptist denominations with various theological and social positions. First Baptist Church of Nashua is pleased to be a part of the Baptist denomination known as American Baptists.
As American Baptists, we celebrate unity in diversity as one of the 5,800 churches consisting of various ethnic groups, worship styles, theological understandings, and churches with both large and small congregations. American Baptists affirm the autonomy of the local church, follow a congregational model of church government, and have no hierarchical governing body. We own our land and buildings and seek to live out the mission and ministry that Christ has given to our church. As American Baptists, we also believe in interdependence and work together with other churches and denominations to accomplish the work of God in our world.
We relate to three organizations to enhance our ministry. Through these interdependent relationships we work together to accomplish the mission and ministry to which we are called.
1) American Baptist Churches , USA
2) American Baptist Churches of Vermont/New Hampshire
3) The Nashua Area Interfaith Council
