“BE ON GUARD. STAND FIRM IN THE FAITH. BE COURAGEOUS. BE STRONG.” – 1 CORINTHIANS 16:13

The Men’s Ministry at First Baptist exists to equip men of every generation into a closer walk with God, by empowering and training them to be spiritual leaders in their home, church, community, and workplace.

We provide various ways for you to build up others, meet vital needs, and express your God-given gifts and talents through our compassionate ministries and service projects. We believe that the body of Christ is stronger together, just as the whole body needs its parts. Our aim is to build a community of goldy men who are courageous defenders of the faith and sacrificial servants on mission for the Lord.

WEEKLY BIBLE STUDIES

Bible study doesn’t just happen on Sunday morning. Get involved with one of our weekday classes.

TUESDAY MORNINGS

Real Men: Abraham

Abraham was capable of tremendous trust in God, but also capable of a surprising amount of doubt. Through the study of Abraham’s life, Rick Burgess, co-host of the nationally syndicated radio show, The Rick & Bubba Show, will challenge you to examine your own faith, and to consider just how far your faith in God will take you.

Leader: Chris Brunt

Tuesdays, September 6 – October 11 | 6:00AM – 7:00AM | Men | Chapel |

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS

Men’s Wednesday Night Bible Study

The Books of 1, 2 & 3 John

Comfortable Christianity often means a weak Christianity. In this study on John’s three letters, Dr. Tony Evans challenges Christians who have grown comfortable and complacent in their faith. Fellowship with God is the essence of our faith, and Tony walks through 1, 2 & 3 John to paint a picture of love, obedience, and truth. In a world that hates Jesus, we are called to love Him and His people with a fierce love.

A weekly Bible Study for men of all ages.

Leader: Adam Donato

Wednesdays, August 17 – October 12 | 6:30PM – 7:30PM | Men | Room 1103 |

Raising a Modern Day Knight

Beginning with a biblical perspective of manhood, author-pastor Robert Lewis shares a unique approach to shaping a boy into a man by equipping him with three essential elements: a vision, a code of conduct, and a transcendent cause (Christianity) in which to invest his life. The series, hosted by RMDK author, Robert Lewis and FamilyLife founder, Dennis Rainey, is a 6-part study for me based on the best-selling Focus on the Family book, Raising a Modern Day Knight.
