First Baptist Gainesville

Our mission is that of Christ's: inclusive of all, redemptive in message, gracious in approach, loving in spirit. We believe it is as important to feed the hungry and care for "the least of these" as it is to seek to bring people into the life of faith. We faithfully engage in mission experiences without regard to denominational ties. We believe that one of the best ways to reflect Christ's love is by expressing our Christian love to people in need.

As an active member of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, we honor historic Baptist principles, are ecumenical in nature, and community-minded in practice. Learn More ›

Lectionary Text

"You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill." 
Matthew 5:14 MSG
