Greetings From Our Pastor


Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!  



     It is my great pleasure to serve God as pastor of First Baptist of New Baden, Illinois.  Our church-family is composed of some of the friendliest people you could ever hope to meet.  We look forward to having guests worship with us.    


     We are a Bible-believing, Bible-teaching, and Bible-preaching Southern Baptist church.  We are afiliated with the Illinois Baptist State Association(IBSA) and the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).  These connections provide us the opportunity to cooperate with like-minded churches in our state, our nation, and, indeed, around the world in carrying out various mission initiatives and activities. 


     We take seriously our commitment to "Exalt the Savior, Equip the saints, and Evangelize the sinner."  Accordingly, we offer numerous opportunities each week for our members, regular attenders and guests to connect with God and other believers, grow in Christ-likeness and serve God.  This we do through our worship, fellowship, discipleship, weekly Bible study programs.   We invite you to join us for Bible study and worship at your earliest opportunity.  We look forward to seeing you soon!



David Manley Sr.

Pastor, First Baptist of New Baden
