Welcome to First Baptist Church — Lindsay

Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will life a live of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. We at First Baptist Church seek to pattern our life according to the teachings of Jesus. It is not a church. It is a community of Jesus followers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and, in the process, grow together. May God richly bless you!
