We’re Saving a Seat for You
We don't care how you're dressed, how many tattoos you have, or what candidate you voted for. We're a church full of broken, imperfect people with every kind of story imaginable, and we're saving a seat for you! Come and be part of our family this Sunday.
Whether it's your first time at church or you've gone to church for years, our Sunday morning gathering is a welcoming place for you to enjoy worshipping Jesus with others. You'll experience heartfelt worship and a relevant, inspiring message from God's Word.
Sunday evening gatherings are casual and informal. We get together to explore and apply the Bible's teaching to events and topics that are not only interesting but relate to the headlines you see online and on the news.
We have groups that meet on Monday and Wednesday to study together, share together, pray together, and learn from one another. We believe that church isn't just about learning, it's about being part of of a caring and accepting family.
About First Baptist
First Baptist has been part of the Fair Grove community since the 1870s. In that time we’ve helped generations of families find hope and acceptance in Jesus Christ.
Even though we have been in this community for a long time, our focus isn’t on our past, but on the future. Together we are making a difference in the hearts and lives of the next generations and empowering them to find fulfillment and joy.
Our Vision and Identity
Simply put, we are here to declare and reveal the liberating power of the Gospel of Jesus.
Real life happens every single day. There’s no reason to face it alone. At First, people are encouraged and equipped to pursue intimacy with God and to develop genuine community with each other.
Knowing Jesus & Making Jesus Known
It’s okay to not be okay. God meets you where you are.
Have you found yourself thinking “This is as good as it gets. I’m broken and my best years are behind me?” We know. We’ve been there.
The good news is that it’s not the end of the story.
Did you know that’s why Jesus came? He understands life is hard and sometimes we feel like there’s no hope and no tomorrow. But in Jesus Christ, we have found hope, help, love, forgiveness, and acceptance.
It’s okay to not be okay. But the good news is that you don’t have to stay that way!
