Pastor John L. Belser has served in active Christian ministry for almost forty years. As Pastor, he preaches and teaches to bring the unchurched into a saving relationship with Jesus Christ without the baggage of tradition. Pastor Belser seeks to bring the Christian into a closer and more meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ through the study of the Bible, obedience to the Holy Spirit, and growing and exercising an ever-increasing faith in Jesus Christ.

Under Pastor Belser's leadership, First Baptist has continued to progress while growing to become centered on Kingdom-building for Jesus Christ and not church tradition. The membership has more than tripled and many new ministries and initiatives have been successfully implemented. The Sunday Worship Experience is more than just a service, it is a life changing event designed to offer God the praise and worship due His Name, followed by the life transforming Word of God as preached and taught by Pastor Belser. Pastor Belser and his lovely wife, Evangelist Kimberly Belser, are the proud and happy parents of four children.
