The doors at the Convention Center open at 9 am for a continental breakfast and a time of fellowship. There will be activities for children and students at 9:30.

Being led of God and in prayerful consultation with Pastor James, a divorce recovery class is being offered at First Baptist. Kerry and Diane Peacock are leading this class on Wednesday evenings from 6:00pm-6:45pm for 13 weeks beginning January 14, 2015 in E208 (Adult 3 area). Childcare will be provided through Kingdom Kids.

Anyone who is separated, divorced, or divorced and remarried are welcome to attend. The class will make use of a divorce recovery workbook, The Fresh Start by Bob Burns and Tom Whiteman. Cost for the workbook is $15 and will be the only cost for the class. The class will cover the stages of divorce recovery, separation/reconciliation struggle, Biblical insights about divorce, being single again, dealing with finances, communication and conflict, bitterness and forgiveness, and helping children of divorce.

If you are interested in this class, you may sign up by calling the church office at 325.655.4101. If you know someone who is struggling in this area, prayerfully encourage them to call and sign up.


FBC’s Beginnings worship service  meets on Sunday evenings at 6 pm in the church’s chapel, located on Harris Street immediately next to Talley Press.

Beginnings is a unique service featuring music led by the Beginnings worship band and preaching from Pastor James who will proclaim God’s Word each week and prompt interactive discussion. Beginnings services will provide an ideal setting for individuals and entire families to escape hectic schedules, worship together, make new friends, build Christian community, and find refreshment in a more casual environment.

Child care is available for ages birth – 4 years old, but families are encouraged bring their older children and attend together as a family.

If you have been looking for a place to just “try out” church and/or you just feel like you need a fresh start, Beginnings is the place for you!



Kingdom KidsKingdom Kids worship through music, Bible Study and various mission emphases especially designed for their age group. Preschoolers are meeting in W113 (the Preschool Suite) and children meet in C205 (the Children’s Hall). We hope you will encourage your children to come and bring friends!

For information on this or any other ministries of FBC, please call the church office at 655-4101.



Thank you so much for visiting! You will find a variety of helpful information about First Baptist Church on this site, but we hope that your visit here will be only the first step in a journey of getting to know the congregation in a personal way. At FBC, we believe the church is the people—not a building, worship service, or website. In fact, the people of First Baptist have roots in San Angelo and the Concho Valley that date back to the 1880s! We are a loving group, committed to professing publically our faith in Jesus Christ as we live in obedience to His call to missions each day. We hope, then, that this website will be a good introduction to the people of First Baptist and her mission to obey Christ.

After you explore the website, please feel free to contact us with questions that you may have about our ministries and opportunities for involvement. Contact information is included on the site as well as ways for you to connect with us through social media. Nothing however quite beats a personal visit. We gather regularly for worship, Bible study, and fellowship, so there are ample opportunities to come meet us. In fact, after every Sunday morning worship service, the staff and I gather in a welcome area called the “atrium” for conversation with guests. You may even receive a coffee mug out of the meeting! We want to be available for questions, friendship building, and spiritual conversation. You’ll find that we aren’t the “perfect” church, but we are simply sinners saved by God’s grace who are called to share the love of Christ with everyone!
