Every person that chooses a Sunday morning worship experience has a personal set of assumptions and expectations. At First Baptist Belton, we work hard to provide a friendly and comfortable place for individuals and families to know Jesus intimately, serve Jesus passionately, and share Jesus globally. People of all ages and backgrounds may be dressed in many different ways. From very casual to “Sunday best,” our people have a gracious warmth.

The focus of our worship is God. This can be clearly seen in the selection of scripture, music, and prayer in our services. Two distinct services are offered each Sunday.  The 8:30 am service has a blend of traditional hymns and choruses, mixed with solos, orchestra and choirs. The 11 am service is more fluid, led by a praise team with an acoustical feel.  The services provide us the opportunity to freely express our appropriate responses of who God is and what He has done in our lives.

Small groups meet on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am. Small groups are the place where the life of the church happens, and we hope you that you’ll be a part. These groups are designed for all ages. These experiences obviously vary from age group to age group. We encourage you to check out our classes for a more complete look.

HOW DO I BECOME A MEMBER?

Since April of 2012, we offer a New Membership Class at least once a month for all youth age and above who are interested in becoming a member of First Baptist Belton.  At the conclusion of the class, attendees can indicate if they wish to become part of the First Baptist Belton family.  They will then be presented to the church at Sunday morning worship, as has been our tradition for more than a generation.

New Membership Classes are at 4 pm one Sunday a month in the College house.  If Kingdom Kids (childcare) is needed, contact Treasure Hanna or call 254-939-0705.
