What to Expect

At First Baptist Gainesville you will discover a warm group of real people dedicated to following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…

 

A Warm Greeting

A heartfelt greeting is part of what makes a church a church. No matter what question you might have just ask. Our greeters are there to help you get settled and comfortable. At First we expect people to come as they are. 

 

Conversation

Expect to be noticed. Expect people to say something like, “Hi, we haven’t met before, is this your first time?”. Expect for people to reach out to you in love.

 

Worship

At our 9AM Worship, there's a casual atmosphere where friendships can form and relationships deepen. A place that is serious about joy, true joy, the kind of joy that comes from real connection with God and others.

We love music, all kinds of music. From contemporary styles to even the occasional urban styles. We use music to show our Lord how much we love and honor Him. It's a place to engage God in our deepest self. 

We also have hot coffee & donuts available. There’s nothing like the smell of good coffee (or tea) to warm you up for worship together. 

At 10AM Sunday School, we offer classes to people from all ages. 

At our 11AM Worship, we have a more blended worship experience. Here, you will enjoy some of the songs you may have grown up with in church. We also have a beautiful choir that sings during this worship service. 

Both of our services are filled with God's presence, God's Word, and God's people. We would love to see you there! 

 

Truth

The Bible tells us to speak the truth in love. The Bible is God’s truth. At First, we seek to explore, understand and apply God’s truth to our lives at every level in a spirit of love. You will find a growing variety of resources to help you grow in God’s truth.
