Welcome to First Baptist Church Gainesville! I am glad you are interested in learning more about this storied congregation.

This site will provide you a thorough glimpse of the ministry and mission of First Baptist Church. You will read of the ways we cultivate spiritual growth in the life of this church, which include:

  • Congregational Worship – Sundays at 8:45am in the Chapel or 11:00am in the Sanctuary
  • Transformational Community – Sunday School (Sundays at 9:45am), Small Groups (Various times/locations), Intergenerational events
  • Missional Engagement – Hands-on service opportunities in Gainesville and beyond
  • Church Investment – Offering one’s personal gifts (financial, leadership, skill, etc.) to benefit the ministry and mission of the church

As you browse, you will also find essential details about special events, campus facilities and church staff. If any of your questions go unanswered, don’t hesitate to email or call us. You can find contact information for all church staff here.

I invite you to join us at First Baptist Church as we celebrate God’s abundant grace and seek to renew the timeless traditions of the Christian faith. We look forward to meeting you!
