Welcome to First Baptist Church of Lindale
We know that visiting a church for the first time can feel a bit overwhelming. This page is designed to give you an idea as to what you will encounter when you come to FBC Lindale. If we could only tell you one thing before you visit, it’s this: we are strongly committed to the Word of God. We believe that the Bible is God’s authoritative message to us today, and we work hard to shape our time together to reflect the standards He has given us.
Our goal in gathering together is that the Word of Christ might dwell in us richly (Colossians 3:16). Every aspect of our services is consciously built on God’s Word. We sing God’s Word, pray in light of God’s Word, read God’s Word publicly, listen to God’s Word preached, and respond to God’s Word. We seek to be relevant, not by following the latest trends, but by bringing the timeless Word of Almighty God to bear on our lives. Because the Bible is so central, we encourage you to bring a copy when you come. If you do not have one, we have pew Bibles available or we would be happy to give you your own personal copy. Our services are generally an hour and fifteen minutes.
There’s nothing on earth more wonderful than a group of people united around God’s Word. We think you’ll sense the joy that this commitment inspires within our congregation, which also fuels our genuine love for our Savior, and our care for other people. We’d love to have you visit on a Sunday. If you’re interested, read on to find out a little bit more about the various aspects of our church gatherings.
