• Welcome

    Glad you are here

    First Baptist Melbourne is a caring congregation that welcomes everyone. We want you to discover the joy that we share when we come together to worship God in spirit and in truth. If you are planning to visit on a Sunday morning, here are some hints to help you find your way around and know what to expect.

  • 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.

Sunday School Classes

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.
