Who We Are

A Great Commission Church: biblical, missional, global

Mandeville's First Baptist Church, located in the heart of Mandeville, has a heart not only for people living on Lake Pontchartrain's northshore but for people living anywhere on the planet. We're a Southern Baptist Convention congregation made up of people from several ethnic backgrounds. We love to worship our Savior and serve Him in our community and in the world.

What to Expect

What are services like?
You'll experience a warm atmosphere in a faith family that loves to worship through singing and by hearing the Bible faithfully proclaimed by our senior pastor, by one of our staff pastors, or by a guest preacher. You will also find a causal, laid-back atmosphere where most will dress causally. In the 8:30am service, you can expect to hear our choir leading our music expressions of worship. We use more traditional hymns; however, you can also expect to hear more modern music as well. The 11:00am service is our more contemporary service, which led by a praise band and praise singers.

What is the community like?
Our church family enjoys our times together, and it shows. During our services, we always take time to talk with one another. Don't be alarmed by this, however, because if you're new, we won't expect you to drive the conversations.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You will receive a warm welcome because we treat everyone the same. You will not be singled out, and you will not have to identify yourself in anyway. You can expect that a biblical message will be given. However, if you don't have a Bible, don't fear, we have them available right under your seat. We even expect you to take the Bible with you as our gift to you.
