  • 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.

Current Sermon Series

Join us April 12 for the beginning of our upcoming sermon series:



"Life Over the Sun: A Teaching Series through the book of Ecclesiastes"

What if you could have everything and anything in the world you could want?  What if you also were the wisest person on the planet?  What if you ruled the most dominant country of your time period as well?  What would the combination of that type of power, riches and wisdom yield...would you finally think that you had it all?

The book of Ecclesiastes was written by King Solomon, the wisest, richest, and most powerful man on the planet.  If it could be bought, he could buy it...if it could be known, he knew it...if it needed power to get it done, he had the juice to push it through.  Nothing hidden, nothing too high priced, nothing beyond his reach...and what did he learn?


We'll be looking at that in our series "Life OVER the Sun"...don't miss it!  Starts the Sunday after Easter!
