Hello, my name is Bob Phillips Pastor of the First Baptist Church, Marydel. We welcome you to visit with us and meet our church family. We really are as close as a church family can get. When a new person comes into our family they feel a warmth and love like they have seldom felt.
Our ministry, preaching and teaching has it's roots in the Protestant Reformation, which broke away from the Roman Catholic Church in the 16th century. We embrace the five solas of the Reformation. We preach the Doctrines of Grace which were born out of the Reformation. We identify with the Founders Movement in the SBC. We believe in the Sovereignty of God and that the Holy Scriptures are without error. We are located about 12 miles west of Dover, Delaware on route 8.
We are extremely mission minded, constantly having missionaries from around the world speak in our church. We have our own mission organization named WORLDMISSION which serves as the mission arm of our church. We send and help support our own missionaries. We also have our own Retreat Center and Mission Outpost in Belize called the Lost World Jungle Lodge. It has 25 acres of pristine jungle and is 20 miles from the Caribbean Sea. We witness to people from around the world who visit there. We have missionaries who come to witness and work. We have a Seminary there for pastors to be taught and trained. We also are planting churches. We invite you to comes visit us soon!
