Welcome . . .
to the website of First Baptist Church of Rochelle, IL. We’re so glad you have stopped by to take a look at what First Baptist Church (FBC) is all about. We hope that these pages help you to understand what you can find and experience through this ministry!
We have something for every member of the family. Whether its nursery care for the little infants to handicap access for older adults---FBC has the facilities and the ministry to help you live.
We believe that when you come to “church” it ought to relate to God and the Bible. The Bible is God’s words, or letters, given to us so that we can know who He is and how we are to respond to Him. Therefore, we begin teaching the Bible with the 2-year olds all the way up to the adults. Of course, all of these Bible lessons are age-appropriate with their stories and hands-on activities throughout all of the children’s classes. Just like in all of life, our learning opportunities never stop. Even with a lifetime of studying about God and this wonderful world he has created, we will never be able to fully absorb all that we can learn. We feel like the apostle Paul in Philippians 3:13-14 where he said,
“Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.”
We’re not perfect at First Baptist, but we want to be obedient to the God and Savior who has loved us and provided a way for us to live . . . eternally. If you are wondering what that statement really means, click here for a very brief explanation of what the Bible says about spending eternity with the Lord.
You can catch a taste of what First Baptist is all about on WRHL, Newstalk 1060. Listen to the Bible message from our Sunday morning services from 11:00 – 11:30 am.
Our website begins to give you an idea of what FBC is all about. Listening on the radio gives you a taste of who and what we are, but the full understanding begins to come when you experience our services in person. We would love to have you come and visit any of our services. Don’t worry, you won’t have to do any scary or uncomfortable things. You might even meet some of your friends or other folks from around town!
Our desire is to be faithful to the truth of God’s Word. After all … that’s the only thing we can really count on in this ever-changing world. We would be glad to answer any questions you might have as to the ministry of First Baptist Church or “why we do what we do.”
With all that being said, come see for yourself. We look forward to meeting you! Check the rest of this website for all the opportunities and schedules at First Baptist Church of Rochelle.
