Connect. Grow. Serve.

Since 1852, the First Baptist community's heart has been for downtown Jonesboro, AR. Over the years, we've kept true to a specific calling to serve our city in and through the downtown area by keeping our campus in its original location on Main Street. FBC is rich in history and tradition, while being progressive in its ministries and strong in its commitment to our Creator.  Our desire is to share His love, hope, and healing as we welcome all people openly, helping them find their place in God's kingdom and in the church.

If you haven't already, we would love for you to join us on Sundays! --

Our Contemporary service, lead by our Worship Team, is relaxed and inviting. Come as you are at 8:30 a.m. for an authentic worship time and a message from our pastor. 

Our Classic service begins at 10:50 a.m. each Sunday. This later service features traditional hymns lead by our Sanctuary Choir, piano, and organ, as well as the sermon.

Bring your kids with you! Childcare is available in the LIFE Center during both services for children 3 years and younger.

We also host a variety of classes and opportunities to connect on a more personal level. There are Bible Study classes for all ages that take place in between the worship services on Sundays, and during the week there are multiple programs and small groups to choose from. To find a place where you and your family can plug in, explore our site or contact our church office.

We are glad you're interested in FBC Jonesboro and would love to meet you!
