Growing in Grace Together
First Baptist is a Southern Baptist church located in New Baden, IL. Our best understanding of God's calling and plan for First Baptist is to connect people to His Son, Jesus Christ, and to show God's love by caring for each other, our guests and visitors, and our community.
God's Will for the Future of Our Congregation
Our community is Christ centered because of His work through First Baptist. We are His hands reaching out to our community providing a stable shelter. First Baptist is a beacon of hope and care in the sea of life because we are anchored to His Word.
Our guests return often because they are connected to Jesus through the Gospel. They are genuinely welcomed, consistently included, and intentionally supported.
Our members are passionate disciples worshipping and growing in Christ with a deep, contagious faith. We are equipped, encouraged, and challenged to be His servants to the world.
Join with us to realize this vision for First Baptist and our community!
Come as Visitors, Leave as Friends
At First Baptist we foster a spirit of evangelism, encourage personal witness, and invite our community to join the Family of God through faith in His Son Jesus Christ. When we participate in the congregation's mission to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we bring God's love to our homes, neighbors, and nations of the entire world.
We welcome you to join us at any time for worship, Bible study, and any activities that interest you. If you would like to become a member of First Baptist, please refer to the Info Center link (above) for more information.
In His Care,
Pastor Dave Manley
