First Baptist Church of Ponchatoula is non-denominational in the sense that we are autonomous and independently governed. In order to most effectively carry out Jesus' Great Commission to "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you," First Baptist Ponchatoula cooperates with other churches through the Northshore Baptist Association, the Louisiana Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention
