Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, MN has the motto:  "To spread a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ."

We like that motto.  Not because we want to be like Bethlehem Baptist, but because it articulates well what Jesus charged us to do:  love God with all that you are and everything you got; love others as yourself; and make disciples of Jesus from among all peoples.  And because God is motivated by His love for His people, putting Him first will result in maximum human floursihing.  

Our aim at First Baptist Icard is to exalt God with lives that put Jesus first and others before ourselves.
