NEW Update:
First Baptist Church has relocated to:

4150 Sandhill Rd

Springfield, IL 62702

It has been one of the greatest blessings for FBC to have been able to minister in Central Springfield having been blessed to play a part in the salvation of thousands of souls over this past 50 plus years.
Over its past nearly 170 years as a Baptist church in Springfield, the church has relocated four previous times. We believe this new era will be a continuance of previous migrations as we seek the Lord’s direction. Please pray for us and stay tuned in to our website, as we will post updated information on our new location as God leads us.
For all of you who have played a part in the ministry of FBC over the many past decades, we say want to say THANK YOU for your support and prayers. Your labors of love have never been forgotten in God’s sight. Again we ask for you to pray with us. If you would like to send us your thoughts you can use our contact form to relay them. We are still seeking a location and if you know of any possible places we can meet temporarily, please let us know.
God bless all and God bless Springfield.
Pastor Mike
A message to those searching for hope.
At FBC we always offer a message of Hope and refreshing for all. Regardless of what the world tells you, there is hope in Christ. We often fall for the delusion that hope is only for the worthy, but to the contrary, there are none of us who are worthy. So How can anyone find peace and hope in this world? The answer is found in a personal relationship with Jesus. No one else can give you this, not your friends or family or some disparaging website or blog. You, personally, must have an encounter with God through prayer. You must speak to Him confessing your unworthiness before Him ask Jesus to forgive your sin, come into your life, and bring peace.
Finding Hope is your choice. No one can make it for you. Follow this link for more information: How I can find hope and experience peace in my life.
