  • 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 three 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.

Disciple Making Groups


We have a group for you!


First Baptist exists to make disciples here and everywhere for the glory of God. A disciple is a follower of Jesus.  We are to be  a follower and make followers. Following Jesus is about living and sharing the gospel of salvation and sanctification (growth in Christ-likeness).  Following Jesus is about transformation in our lives to obey Him. The Bible and groups are two vital ways that help us.  We believe disciple-making groups, where we can meet in community with others and study God’s Word, are a critical part of growing in Christ and a critical tool in reaching others for Christ.  We offer several  options and levels of disciple-making groups to assist you.


Life Groups


Life Groups are small groups of up to 16 people that focus on sermon application, focused discipleship training, your own  spiritual health plan, service, and discipling others. They meet weekly  at a variety of times at church, in homes, and other locations. For off-campus groups childcare arrangements vary by group needs. You may attend either or both a life group and Sunday School class.  To learn more about Life Groups click here. 


Sunday School


Sunday School provides groups for all ages that focus on teaching, fellowship, ministry, and service. Sunday School groups meet concurrently with Sunday morning worship so you may attend before or after worship. Parents attending for the first-time with preschoolers and children are encouraged to go by information center C, by the preschool area, so we may help you locate your child’s room. Students, grades 7-12, will go to the Senior High area/Student Center B for the 10 am time only. Young Adult Singles meet at 11:30 am in the Junior High Building.  To learn more about Sunday School click here.


Growth Groups


Growth Groups are usually 6-8 week topical studies on a variety of discipleship topics and some are on-going.  They meet at various times and locations throughout the week.  To see what studies are meeting now, click here.
