Church Policies

Children and Youth Protection Policy

It is our mission at First Baptist Church to provide Christ-centered programs and activities that are safe and secure. The teaching and learning environment of each classroom is an extension of the Christian home. The church joins with parents in building a spiritual foundation for the child’s future salvation experience, as well as helping families to develop an attitude that is the same as Christ Jesus.   Click here for the policy.

First Baptist Church requires any Volunteers who work with children and/or youth to complete a Volunteer Screening Background Check. This check includes criminal background and/or motor vehicle check where applicable.  Click here for the Screening Form.

Financial Policy

First Baptist Church of Clayton is a vessel of God’s love and work. Its mission is “To be a Christ-centered family of believers who share God’s love, proclaim the gospel to all people, grow spiritually through discipleship and actively serve our community and world.” As we seek to achieve that mission, we must also be good stewards of the financial resources received. We are blessed with the faithful and generous tithes and offerings of God’s people. Along with that blessing comes both a spiritual and legal obligation to be careful and prudent in the receiving, handling, managing and disbursing of funds.  Click here for the policy.
