Heart. Soul. Mind. Strength.

Come join our community of faith as we together journey through life.

A Place to Worship

We believe our faith grows best in community. Worship at First Baptist Church focuses on our need to honor, hear and follow God. With reverence and warmth, we listen for God’s leadership and give thanks for God’s care. If you are seeking a place where your mind, heart and soul can be fed, we invite you to join us for worship.

A Place to Serve

Our faith calls us to follow the model of Jesus, and that leads us to serve others. We believe that our care for others is a central way of sharing God’s love with the world. First Baptist Church offers opportunities to serve in our community, our nation and in specific global partnerships. Together with God’s presence, we can make a real difference in our world.

A Place to Grow

Because we never fully understand God and faith, the journey of faith is lifelong. To grow in faith we need discipline, challenge and the support of a loving community. First Baptist Church offers ministries for all ages that encourage growth, service and build community. There’s a place for you to grow at FBC Laurens.

One Family. One Mission.

Building Our Future in Faith

Heart. Soul. Mind. Strength. We see these words often in our church’s publications or on the church’s website. These words guide us in carrying out our mission. They help us refine who we are and what we will do to advance God’s reign in Laurens and throughout the world. Our mission is to enable and encourage everyone to live in a fully committed relationship with God.
