  • 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.

Set Free Ministries

Set Free ministries is a network of Christ-centered support groups.


Purpose statement.

Helping people truly be set free in Christ. We do that by showing the love of Christ through support groups. Helping people connect or reconnect to the bride of Christ that is the church. Coming alongside serving and doing life together. Helping people grow in Christ, making disciples of all nations.


How do we do that?

  1. Meet a real-world need through Godly support and love. (Matt. 25:40)
  2. Christ-centered focus. (John 14:6)
  3. Helping people fall in love with the person and personality of Christ. Moving from two-dimensional head-knowledge of Christ, to a three-dimensional heart-love of Christ. (John 10:14)
  4. Restoring people to the body of Christ. (1 Corinthians 12:12-14)
  5. Fulfilling the Great Commission. (Matthew 28:19-20)


Overcomers - Support group for chemical addictions.

Overcomers is our co-ed ministry to help adults with all types of hurts, habits and hang-ups. This is a share, support group that will include the opportunity to go further in taking steps to overcome addictions and other struggles. Overcomers meets on Monday evenings in ED 118-119 at 7:30 p.m. Michael Herold is the group leader.


Fight Club - Support group for men

Pornography and other forms of impurity battle and beset many men. There is a power in God’s grace that is stronger than the pull of sin. The Fight Club is a private, safe place for men to encourage one another to find freedom from captivity through Jesus Christ. Due to confidentiality, group information is available only through Fightclub@fbcmel.org.


GriefShare: Your Journey from Mourning to Joy - Returning 9/7/17

The death of a family member or friend is devastating. Christians have the promises of God’s word and the fellow-ship of fellow believers for comfort and encouragement. GriefShare meets on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in ED 107. Workbooks (optional) are available. Elissa Collins and Bob Magee are the facilitators.


Renewed - Support group for mental and emotional challenges. - Returning in the fall.

Living resilient through the renewing of our mind in Christ. Depression, stress, anxiety, and abuse (both mental and emotional) can keep us trapped inside our own minds.
