Welcome to First Baptist Springfield!!


At FBC, Jesus is Our Blessed Hope!
Titus 2:11โ€“14 (NKJV)
Trained by Saving Grace
11 For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men, 12 teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly in the present age, 13 looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ, 14 who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from every lawless deed and purify for Himself His own special people, zealous for good works.
Welcome! We are so glad you found us! It is our sincere desire at First Baptist to serve the Springfield IL community by uplifting Jesus as the one and only Lord of life! You are so welcome to come and be a part of our church!
First Baptist is a growing fellowship of Spirit-filled believers coming together to declare the awesome glory of the Lord and to celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn, and in the process grow together.

Visitors are always welcome!

We hope that you will come join with us in humble praise and joyous celebration of the risen Lord!

First Baptist Church Live Stream

Wednesday Evening Prayer and Bible Studies at 7:00 PM
with Associate Pastor John Snyder
Note for the next several weeks we will be beginning Wednesday evenings with a video and we cannot stream this. It is the Rocks Cry Out series produced by Search For the Truth Ministries. See them for more information at www.searchforthetruth.net/  if you’d like to watch it at home. You might also be able to search for some of the lessons free online. These lessons run about 45-50 minutes, so we’ll set the livestream countdown for 7:45 p.m. which is about when we expect to begin our broadcast breakdown discussion. This is of course an approximation. Live means live and we are not machines. However we are slowly getting much better at this streaming thing, as we know that quite a few people follow us online, unable to come in person due to distance or health concerns. As of this week our new microphones are in and have tested out very well, so God is blessing us with improvements to our sound. Thank you to all of our church members and extended family out there who have supported us in prayer and financially. Don’t forget us as we continue to work on many small things behind the scenes.
From 6:15 am – 7:30 am
