When asked, "Who is First Baptist Church?" the answer constantly changes. We have families who have been here for generations and people who have been here a few months. We have people who work for the school system, Rapid City Regional Hospital, on ranches, in food service, and lots of other places. Maybe the best response to the question, "Who is First Baptist Church?" is simply, "We're messy." Yes, we have messy lives because we're human. We struggle, but we struggle together. We celebrate, and we celebrate together. We try to be real with each other, but sometimes don't even do that very well. If you join us for worship, people will very likely come up and introduce themselves. We'll respect your anonymity if group settings are intimidating. But if you're open to connections, we want to get to know you.
