BACK to TOP LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES
We believe God equips men and women to work as equal partners in the church. All leadership opportunities are therefore open to both men and women of faith. Our members and friends are encouraged to explore different opportunities for mission and ministry and to discover those areas where they can serve most effectively and joyfully.

The First Baptist Church of Redlands has seven commissions elected by the congregation to provide leadership in different areas of our church ministry. The commission system enables our church members to be personally involved in the ongoing ministry of the church and to develop special skills and expertise in vital areas of service.
