  • 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.

Moving Forward





First Baptist Melbourne is excited about offering Moving Forward, a biblical and balanced recovery program that is not limited to addictions.  Moving Forward is positive.  It doesn't remain in the past and doesn't encourage standing still in the present.  We can and should move forward in life beginning where we are.  We have share groups for chemical and non-chemical issues.


Philippians 3:13-14 says, "I do not consider that I have made it my own.  But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus."

Moving Forward is built around small group interaction and the fellowship of a caring community.


When Do We Meet?

Meetings are held every Friday night in the Junior High Student Center.  We have a meet and greet time from 6:45 - 7:00 with refreshments.  Childcare check-in begins at 6:45; reservations are requested so we can adequately staff our children's needs.

Pizza dinner is served every First Friday of the month from 6-6:45 pm for $1.00 a slice.  Sub Night is the 3rd Friday of each month from 6-6:45.  Quarter portion subs are $1.00 each. 


Worship and teaching time is from 7:00 - 7:55 PM.  We use material from Celebrate Recovery as our base format and supplement from time to time.


Open Share Groups meet from 8-9:00 PM.  Coffee and fellowship is available until 9:30 PM; children need to be picked up from childcare by 9:15 PM.


For more information or to make childcare reservations call 321-723-0561.
