Who We Are

Igniting A Passion For God In The Hearts Of People

The "church" is the body of Christ. It's purpose is to evangelize the lost, equip the believers, and exalt the Savior. In the New Testament it is used to describe the people of God in general as well as a local group of believers. As the body of Christ, the church is special to the Lord.

First Baptist Church of Austinville is a unique group of believers. We share the same vision as we serve the Lord in unison. We share common beliefs and commitments. We are friends and we love to make new friends. We would be honored to have you come and build a strong and lasting friendship with us.

If you are seeking God's salvation we want to share Jesus Christ with you. If you are seeking a place of service and worship, we invite you to come and worship with us. Our prayer is that the God will work His will in your life. It is our desire for God to use us in some special way to be a blessing to you. You are welcomed at the First Baptist Church of Austinville.

We want to personally invite you to come and see what we are all about. Be blessed and be a blessing!
