Whether you are considering relocating to our area, are new to Paola, are simply looking for a church to call home, or are seeking to discover spiritual truth in your life we would love to have you be our guest. You are always welcome at First Baptist Church!

When you visit our church, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God
  • Ministries to meet the spiritual needs of every age
  • Truth-filled and moving praise and worship

You will see people in dress clothes and people in jeans -- fashion is not the issue here. We are a people seeking to become all that God has for us through changed hearts. It is our desire that you feel welcome, and will join with us as we allow God to transform us into the people He has designed us to be.
