At First Baptist Belton, we desire for adults in every stage of life to value Jesus Christ above everything by knowing Him intimately, serving Him passionately, and sharing Him globally. To accomplish this task we gather together for study and application of Scripture, fellowship, accountability, prayer, and service. First Baptist is committed to provide Christ exalting opportunities for adults. Click on the links below to learn more about specific things you can join to grow in Christ and with others.
At First Baptist, we believe Sunday School is a valuable tool for conforming us to the image of Christ. Our Sunday School leadership desires that each lesson feeds and equips you to grow in Christ Jesus. Sunday School classes meet every Sunday from 9:45 – 10:45 and no matter what age or stage of life you’re in, we have a place for you! Find your place in Sunday School here.
First Baptist has weekly gatherings that help encourage and equip adults to know, serve, and share Jesus. The list of scheduled gatherings continually expands so please contact the church office or check the website for information. The available weekly gatherings presently are:
