First Baptist Church Norfolk http://www.firstnorfolk.org/
Serving Hampton Roads to Change the World, First Norfolk is a multi-generational church helping people far from God find new life in Christ. Each week we come together at least once with other believers around the cross. We go to our homes where we minister to and within our families, but also to our neighbors. As we build relationships with our neighbors, our conversations change from small talk to spiritual matters. As we go out into the community, we find ourselves at work, school or play along life’s normal pathways. We go out of our normal pathways to build bridges to people we don’t normally come across in our day-to-day lives.
