Thank you for taking your time to check out the exciting ministry of the First Baptist Church of Gholson. Whether you are new to First Baptist, new to our city, or just new to church, we would love to have the opportunity to minister to you. We are a Bible-based, family-oriented, loving community of Christians that believe Jesus still changes lives.

We invite you to explore our website and plan a visit to our campus. We would love to meet you and worship with you as together we seek to grow in and serve through our love for Christ.

We look forward to worshipping with you.
