First Baptist Sylvania

We know checking out a church for the first time can be tough so from the moment you drive up, we want you to feel at home and welcomed into a family that loves Jesus and cares about you!

You'll experience an engaging worship gathering that lasts about an hour. Lead Pastor Wayne Ayer or another First Baptist Church pastor will bring a relevant, thought-provoking, and Bible-centered message designed to intersect with real life.

The short answer is, whatever you want. We don't have a dress code. You can come in a suit, shorts, jeans, or whatever you feel comfortable in. We tend to dress pretty casually.

It’s a good idea to arrive around 10-15 minutes early so you’ll have time before heading into the auditorium to find your seat. If it’s your first time visiting us, and you have kids, it’s a good idea to give yourself an extra 5-10 minutes to get your children out the door too at home. One of our amazing members will help you get your kids checked in and will give you a tour of the Family First Kids ministry space so you feel more at ease. We are a safe place.

Nope except maybe a Bible. If you don't have a Bible but would like one, we have one just for you and it's free. Our pastor will preach out of the KJV version and will use teaching notes and PowerPoint to keep you engage. All the scripture selections for the day's message will be on the in the notes and in the screen if you prefer not to bring a Bible. You can't highlight, underline, circle, or mark up our screens though so you might want to bring your Bibles it awesome. If you don’t have just tell us we would be honored to give you one.

Fill in the blank with whatever fear you have about not being accepted: divorced, a single parent, broke, a recovering addict, gay, transgender, atheist, skeptic, etc. Everyone is welcome at First Baptist Church of Sylvania, Ga. We believe the way of the Kingdom of God is that we belong first, believe second, and behave (change) third. Jesus is the one who does the changing in our lives and we believe everyone who encounters Jesus will be changed. So come as you are, and we’ll see you on Sunday!

First Baptist Church Kids is a safe place for your kids. Each Sunday, Family First Ministries Kids (newborns through 5th graders) learn about Jesus in a way that makes the Bible relevant and exciting for them through worship, large group, and small group environments that are age-specific and led by our well-trained and screened All Church Kids volunteers.

Wednesday Night, youth grader meet at the Family Life Center building at 6pm to hang out and discover how much Jesus loves and cares for them. Each Sunday morning at 9:45 AM their is worship, fun, and an engaging message about Jesus that is relevant to the real issues students face in everyday life
