What if you could have a fresh start? And, what if that fresh start could be at church? Skeptical?   First Baptist Portales is a church where faith is real & grace is plentiful. This church is a place to refresh and renew.   We are ordinary people who worship an extraordinary God. We are imperfect people who serve a perfect Savior. So if you are ordinary and imperfect, hey, you'll fit right in!

Our church's mission is to love God, love people, and share Jesus. It's that simple. We want to have God make a difference in our lives and in use us to make a difference in our community. Our vision is to be a life-giving fellowship who has such an impact that if our church were to no longer exist Portales would miss us.
