WELCOME

 
We are excited that you have chosen to visit Jonesboro First Baptist Church. Please take a look around our website where we hope you will find many ways God is working in and through us. We believe you are viewing our website because of God’s intended design for your life today. The Bible says that God has placed eternity in the hearts of everyone, so many people feel that emptiness but don’t realize God is the only one to fill it. They seek to fill it with all sorts of worldly things. If you are seeking God for the first time he can be found, and our goal is to help you find him here. Maybe you have tried church before but need a fresh and exciting encounter through worship, if so our services are filled with people seeking the same thing each Sunday.  We seek to make this place a warm and environment for everyone that comes. We want to help you become a committed follower of Jesus Christ through all that we do here. Please come visit us during one of our services, events or ministries which we hope in some way will have a Lasting Effect on you. God Bless.
 
Even if you are not sure about God, Church or the whole Christian thing, we welcome you to join us anyway during one of our services. Bring your questions, doubts or concerns we will gladly, prayerfully and respectfully listen to them. Feel free to ask us anything you wish.
Our preaching and teaching is firmly grounded in the Bible because only God’s Word can eternally impact our lives. Our worship is directed toward an audience of One, God Himself, so to express our deep love for him and our thankfulness. Our times together as God’s people are oriented in caring for and loving one another, so that the world will know we are His disciples. We want to Care for Our Community and you.

 

What to Expect When You Visit

You can expect to be greeted warmly when you enter the doors of Jonesboro First Baptist Church. We want everyone who enters to feel a Loving Environment. Our desire is for you to sense the Spirit of the Lord as we seek to honor Him in fellowship and worship.

For senior adults or individuals with difficulty climbing stairs there is additional parking in the gravel lot behind our building located on Church Street. For all others park in the paved lot, and once you enter the building there are three sets of stairs that lead to our worship area.

Our worship times are 8:15 and 10:35 am on Sundays. Each service is a very casual atmosphere with a reverent tone; please look at our Upreach page for a description of our worship style. You will hear uplifting praise from our music leaders and applicable preaching from our pastor’s heart.
If you come to the early service please feel free to join us afterwards during our coffee and community time in the downstairs dining area. It begins at 9 AM, thirty minutes before our morning Bible study time. This is a great opportunity to meet our members in order to make them your new friends.
You may wonder what do I wear to worship. Whatever you feel comfortable in! We have no dress code; however, you will see men in jeans or khakis and golf shirts as well as coats and ties. For women, pants, jeans, skirts or dresses are all acceptable. Our youth tend to be casual but reverent in their dress. It is not what you wear that matters to us, just your presence is important.

Spiritual growth is important no matter what our age. Having a relationship with Christ is most important and developing a deep commitment is a life-long process. We offer many opportunities to grow spiritually. We encourage you to participate in worship, find a Sunday School class that meets at 9:30 AM and select a small group that will offer study and accountability. Take advantage of our various programs and you’ll be amazed at how fast you will become familiar with everything and everyone.
