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.

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!

Monthly Events

Saturday Evening Movies, Concerts, & Films

Every 4th Saturday of the month, FBC shows a faith film to help encourage believers in their walk through film. It is always a fun time and families are all encouraged to attend. Best of all, there is never a fee! It’s our part of giving back to the families of the community. Please make it a point to spend time together as a family!
Remember John 3:16,
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him may have eternal life! Find new life in Christ at FBC!
