Marshfield First Baptist Church

Who We Are

We are a Southern Baptist church desiring to reach and minister to our region with the good news of God's love. Our goal is to lead people to worship, grow and serve: we worship God because He loves us and we love Him; we grow by learning what the Bible teaches us; from that spiritual growth we gain a desire to serve God by serving others. We are constantly in this process of worshiping, growing and serving. Every follower of Christ has gifts and talents to use as they serve God. both in the church family and out in the community. We use a "blended" style of worship, with both older and newer music to help us worship. We use a blended mix of Sunday Sunday classes on Sunday mornings and small group discipleship on Sunday evenings and other times. This is an exciting church family with older members and young families, long time believers and new believers. At the beginning of 2013 we average about 375 in weekend attendance.

Our church community is a loving group of people who are excited to be a part of God's family. We are people who delight to welcome new friends and neighbors, family and co-workers in to a warm, friendly and fun group of people who are all on a journey of learning how to love God and serve Him and serve one another. The larger Body of Christ in our town - people of other churches and denominations - have a love for one another and we realize we are serving God together in order for God to be honored and glorified in our town.

What if I'm not a Christian?
If you're not a believer, we welcome you to come and be a part of what's going on in our church family. Come worship with us, join a Bible study group, ask questions and explore what God wants to do in your life. We want you to know that God loves you and invites you to be in His family. He wants to bless you and meet your needs for life. We want to lovingly and patiently share God's love with you.

Durwin Kicker

Pastor Durwin Kicker has been with Marshfield First Baptist since January 1995. He originally came on staff as Minister of Youth and Education. In October 1997 the church called him to become the senior pastor. He is a southerner at heart, growing up in north Alabama, and is a Crimson Tide fan! Durwin gave his heart to Jesus at age eight. At age 17 he answered God’s call into ministry and began preparing for vocational service. He is a 1985 graduate of Southwest Baptist University in Bolivar, Missouri and in 1989 earned his Master of Arts in Religious Education from Southwestern Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas. Durwin’s wife, Kim, is very involved in our music ministry and is an elementary music teacher in our Marshfield school district. They have two adult children, Anna and her husband, Isaac, and Kyle and his wife, Kimberly. Pastor Durwin says, “I love Marshfield and Marshfield First Baptist! This is a church family that genuinely strives to honor the Lord and reach our city, state, nation and world with the Good News of Jesus. God is continually teaching me so much as we try to lead our church and follow God’s desires for us. My greatest desire as a pastor is to be effective in leading people to worship the Lord, continually grow in their spiritual lives and serve God with the gifts He has given them.” Follow Pastor Durwin's blog at www.durwinkicker.com.
