Hi! We are First Baptist Church of Commerce

Our Vision and Values

Our vision is to grow in our relationship with God, through Christ, so that we may more effectively share God’s message of love and grace with others. We value MISSIONS that give opportunities to serve God by serving others. We value SPIRITUAL GROWTH through worship, study, and service. We value FELLOWSHIP that is strong and open, welcoming everyone. We value LEADERSHIP that seeks God’s will and pursues his calling.


Worship at First Baptist Church is designed to honor and glorify God and to provide people with an opportunity to encounter his love and grace. The services feature creative approaches in a traditional setting. Sermons are biblically-based and intellectually challenging. 

The Sunday morning services feature a time for children in the sanctuary and a children’s church that begins when the younger children leave the sanctuary following the offering. We hope you will join us for worship and that you will find an atmosphere that is warm and inviting and that assists you in focusing on your relationship with God. Our prayer is that you will hear and experience the Good News of Christ in a way that will encourage you to place your trust in him and strengthen your journey with him. We look forward to meeting you.

GIVING to First Baptist Church of Commerce


Jesus said that where your treasure is, your heart is there also. What He means is that if our money is our treasure, our heart belongs to our wallets and not to Him. The Bible also speaks about being a good steward of all the blessings God has given you, including your money. So we want to honor Him by giving back a portion of what He has so generously given to us.
