First Baptist Longview is...

a family of believers committed to sharing Jesus Christ with the world in hopes that each person will accept His unconditional offer of grace.  The First Family loves company and would love for you to join us in worship, prayer, Bible study and mission endeavors.    

When are your worship services?

Our worship services start at 9:30 a.m. with contemporary worship in our theater and traditional worship in our sanctuary. Please show up early to talk to any of our pastors or meet one of our "red shirts" who can help you find your place and become comfortable.

How do I get to First Baptist?

You can find us on the corner of Fredonia and Cotton streets in Downtown Longview, Tx. Please click here to find us on Google Maps.

What can I expect on my visit?

From the moment you pull up to the church facilities, we want you to feel like family. You will be presented with several opportunities for Bible study (we call them "LifeGroups") and encouraged to visit at least three times to see where you fit in best. Both traditional worship in the sanctuary and contemporary worship in the theater begin at 9:30 a.m. Our leadership, staff, and members are eager to share with you about our church, the ministry opportunities available and how you can join in based on your gifts, abilities, passions, and experiences.

What are the services like on Sunday mornings?

On the first Sunday of each month, all of our Sunday morning ministries gather together in the sanctuary for one service at 9:30 a.m., bringing together our contemporary worship attenders, our spanish-speaking Puertas Abiertas worship attenders, our traditional worshippers, and our Special Friends ministry. For the other Sundays in the month, our contemporary service meets in the theater and our traditional service meets in the sanctuary, both at 9:30 a.m., with preaching live in the sanctuary and livestreamed into the theater.   

What should I wear?

There is no dress code. Whether you prefer to wear a suit and tie, dress, or a t-shirt and jeans, you will find the company of many others who wear the same thing.
