On Saturday, October 1st, 2016, the First Baptist Church hosted the Bautista por la Paz Conference, “Do Not Be Afraid.”  The conference was a Conflict Transformation training specifically focused on racial justice and changing the narrative in the midst of racial conflict. Called Do Not Be Afraid, the theme for the training was inspired by a quote from civil rights champion John Lewis, “If we want to build the beloved community, we cannot be afraid.”
