Welcome to First Baptist Hendersonville!
Who We Are:
First Baptist is a church that desires to connect every generation to God, others, and service. With a generational emphasis and a next-generation priority, FBCHville strives for every generation to know God personally, to be the hands and feet of Christ, and to invest their lives in others.
What We Believe:
At the core, we believe that the Bible is God’s inspired and authoritative Word. We believe in God, Three-in-One, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, the Creator of all. We believe in Jesus, who died for our sins, and who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. We believe in the Holy Spirit who guides us to spiritual maturity with a stature measured by Christ’s fullness. We believe in Christ’s return to claim His bride for eternal glory. As a Baptist Church we abide by the Baptist Faith and Message. Read more about it here.
With three worship hours and two different music styles, there’s a service for everyone! From a large gathering in the Worship Center to the more intimate setting of Wilson Hall, Sunday morning services have a lot to offer. Try out a service this Sunday at 8:30, 9:45, or 11:00.
First Baptist emphasizes every ministry, but prioritizes the Next Generation. Our NextGen Ministry is comprised of Preschool, Kids, Preteen, Middle School, and High School. Through retreats and camps, exciting events, and incredible Wednesday and Sunday opportunities, our NextGen ministries strive to create a safe environment for kids to grow in their relationships with the Lord, make new friends, and make memories to last a lifetime.
Whether a single Young Professional to a parent of elementary kids, or an empty nester, there’s something for everyone at First Baptist. In the Adult Ministry you’ll find a place for College, YoungPros, Ladies, Men, and 55+. Sunday morning Connect Groups are available for every season of life. Wednesday equipping classes, or Bible studies, are designed to dive deeper into the Word and provide a place to find community.
Special Friends exists to be a safe, positive, and joy-filled place where children and adults with intellectual and developmental differences can experience the love of Christ.
FBCHville Missions Ministry seeks to connect every generation to service. Believers can grow in their relationship with Christ by living a lifestyle of missions. Whether it’s the local grocery store or a country on the other side of the world, the Good News of Jesus is for all people. And as followers of Christ, we are called to take this Good News to the ends of the earth.
First Baptist has opportunities to make missions a part of your everyday life through local partnerships, short term missions, and more!
From teaching to greeting, driving golf carts, leading worship, or packing boxes with Feed Sumner, there is an opportunity for everyone at First Baptist to serve. God has given everyone unique gifts and we can use those to serve Him. Check out where you can get involved today!
First Baptist is passionate about engaging the community with the hope of the Gospel. The Community Ministry maintains a strong relationship with both Hendersonville and Gallatin Chamber of Commerce. FBCHville desires to serve the community in local events by providing safe kids play areas, golf cart shuttles, and more. To find out how you can serve, contact Ben Baxley.
