Who We Are

At First Baptist Norfolk we are all on a journey together, as we share life in Jesus Christ. It is our goal to help you on your journey as well, wherever you are along the way. We believe that Jesus provides the answer we need for living every day. When we meet together, we seek to provide an atmosphere for a close, personal encounter with God through our Life Groups and celebrative worship. We are a multi-generational church with ministries for all-ages. We pray that you would join us for Life Groups and worship sometime in the near future.
