About Us

Welcome to First


Whatever your need, whatever your reason, welcome to First Baptist Church of Guntersville. We know that He has a purpose for bringing you on this special day, to this special place. We hope you feel a genuine welcome as you share with us in this worship experience. As a church family, we have a clear vision of what God wants this fellowship to do: “to know Christ and to make Him known.” True worship is our spiritual priority and loving people is our spiritual privilege.

“Our Mission is to know Christ and to make Him known”

What is our purpose as a church?

The church is a very warm and loving body of believers whose goal is to worship and serve Jesus Christ.

Our Vision is to celebrate life in Jesus Christ through worship, praise, and fellowship and to equip the saints so that in His name we offer the assurance of salvation to our community, our nation, and our world.

Our slogan is more than just a catchy phrase. We hope that it gives you insight into just who we are. We want to be a church that is really making a difference – in the lives of people who have become part of our family – in our community where we work to improve the quality of life and care – and in our world, through worship, missions, and service. Our program and ministries all flow from our Vision Statement and aim to demonstrate to those outside of our church that FBC is a place of relevance, care, and supernatural power!

It is our desire that our buildings and resources be used to bring glory to God, encouragement to His people and to minister to the community.

We want you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church. We will bring you updates often on just what is happening at our church and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in the lives of people.
