Welcome to First Baptist Springfield!!


FBC – Putting Jesus First!!
He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence.
(Col 1:15-18)
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!

Recent Sermon Series:
Discerning God’s Plan as Revealed in the Bible
This series will endeavor to give the Church an overview of God’s intentions for the Church and for Israel as Revealed in Scripture. It will cover selected passages in both the Old Testament and the New. What will emerge is a more clear picture of how God has revealed Himself to the world in order to bring salvation to the uttermost parts of the earth. Many different genres of biblical literature will be used, from Psalms, Poetry, Histories, Laws and Commands, Gospels and Epistles to the Apocalyptic. Many questions I have been asked over the years will be answered. Studying God’s word is a blessing, and I am sure that in following the series grow in the Grace of God and become even more excited about Jesus and His word. — Pastor Michael Henderson
