  • Visiting?

    Making Disciples Here & Everywhere for the Glory of God.

    On your first visit, look for our “Visitor Parking” spaces at the west and north sides of the building. If you have small children you may want to park on the east side of the building by our preschool entrance for your convenience. Friendly folks will be ready to greet you at all of our major entrances and escort you to the sanctuary for worship. They can also help you identify a small group Bible study class where you can connect with others, and escort you to that class’ meeting location.  

  • Worship

    Making Disciples Here & Everywhere for the Glory of God.

    Worshiping our Savior together is a core value for us and is a highlight of our week! Our two morning services are identical in style and are led by our Praise Team, Worship Choir and Orchestra. Because we believe God has spoken to us through His Word, we also place great emphasis in our services on faithful Bible preaching.

  • Children

    Making Disciples Here & Everywhere for the Glory of God.

    First Baptist is a family church and we want to do everything we can to help your children and students connect with God and grow in their faith. We think that happens best when families worship together with their children 1st grade and up. (Don’t worry, we know kids make noise!) While parents attend adult Bible study, we have exciting classes available for children of all ages. Students in 7th-12th grade typically attend the first worship service with their families (9 AM) and meet together in our student center for Bible study during the latter worship hour (10:40 AM). Hosts are available at all the entrances to help you navigate the halls and find these various locations.

About Us

“We exist to make disciples here, and everywhere, for the glory of God!”


What is First Baptist all about? That’s easy—we’re about Jesus! We’re a church filled with ordinary people who have been rescued by an extraordinary Savior! And we want to be about the task Jesus gave His church in Matthew 28:19-20 when He said: “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.” We believe disciple-making has to start with us! We want to grow every day in understanding what it means to follow Jesus and live lives shaped by the Gospel. We also believe though that making disciples doesn’t end with us—we’re called to encourage one another in this community we’re a part of called the church. We understand also that Christ’s call to make disciples extends beyond the walls of the church into the community around us, and into the world. That’s our mission—to share Christ’s love so that new disciples will be formed here in Melbourne and around the world!


To find out more about our vision, click on the links to the right or watch the short videos on our homepage on our three core values, Gospel, Church, and Mission.


Finally, we hope you’ll join us on a Sunday morning for worship or attend one of our disciple-making groups and discover firsthand what FBC is all about! We trust you’ll find FBC to be a loving family of believers where you can come just as you are, and leave changed by the love of Jesus!
