Our purpose in Denair is to provide a place to worship, teach, evangelize, disciple, and fellowship
Our mission is to take the "Good News" of Jesus Christ to Denair, local communities, the world, and to minister to others in Christian love.
Denair Baptist Mission was founded on July 22, 1979. The first service was held in the home of one of its church members under the leadership of our founding pastor Rev. Henry Hankins. The mission was sponsored by First Baptist Church of Atwater, California.
On Easter Sunday, 1985 the Denair Baptist Mission held its first service at its new site, located at 4528 N. Gratton Rd. in Denair. May 4, 1986 the Denair Baptist Mission chose to be called First Southern Baptist Church of Denair, California. In September of 1987 pastor Henry Hankins resigned. In March of 1988 pastor Steve Donaldson was called as our pastor.
God has blessed our church in mighty ways from the very beginning. God began His work in 1979 and continues to work. We remain committed to the kingdom's work as we minister to the community.
