WHO WE ARE

ABOUT SEMINOLE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH


WELCOME


WELCOME TO SEMINOLE FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH


We’re glad you’ve found us! We invite you to explore and discover who we are. After that, we invite you come join us in the journey of faith through fellowship, worship, Bible study, ministry, and sharing the wonderful story of Jesus Christ and the life He offers all who follow Him.

Join us Sunday Mornings for worship.  In worship we express our love, devotion, and praise to God through music and prayer.  We also hear a message from God’s Word, the Bible, a message that takes God’s Word seriously and seeks to apply it to our lives practically and relevantly.

Our LIFE Group hour provides opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship through small group Bible Studies that meet for an hour at 9:30am each Sunday morning.

Continue opportunities for growth are offered on Sunday night in Growth Groups (small group discipleship). Some Sunday nights we gather in a large group for other opportunities for worship and spiritual growth.

God bless you in your journey with Him!

WHAT TO EXPECT

From the moment you arrive on our campus, you will feel the warmth and love of a great group of people. SFBC is a friendly, caring church that wants you to feel comfortable and important when you worship with us.

Since we are located just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico, our style of dress typically proves to be on the casual side. There are some people in suits and some in dresses, but most are comfortable in pants or jeans with a nice shirt.

We have an awesome worship experience that exalts Christ and offers opportunity for spiritual growth.  In our worship services, our Worship Team and Adult Choir lead an amazing time of praise and worship, which leads into our pastor’s message of relevant, applicable, biblical teaching.  All are welcome to join us as we celebrate and praise our God for who He is and what He has done for us!

Between our worship services, we have a time of Bible Study that we call Life Groups. While you may know this as Sunday School, we have a class for every age group with dedicated teachers and leaders who desire to teach God’s Word.
