To display the love of Jesus as an intersection, connecting people through creative events, family, discipleship, and service.
— Mission of First Baptist | FTL

What we’re about

The words of Jesus in Matthew 22 and 28 compel us to serve God by serving others! It’s really pretty simple – we’re passionate about making Jesus known in our generation, and the best way to do that is by meeting the needs of the people in our world. We are indeed a city church, situated right at the intersection of diverse ethnicities, cultural expression and global commerce. We’re a safe place for learning and growth, and we’re a loving place to belong. When you’re at First Baptist | FTL, you’re among family.


What we believe

We are affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, so that means we cooperate and collaborate with more than 40,000 other SBC churches to bring healing to those who are hurting through education, disaster relief, humanitarian aid, missionary immersion and so much more. 


Learn More About Jesus

Jesus loves you. He offers you purpose in life, forgiveness for your sin, and eternity with Him in heaven. Beginning a personal relationship with Jesus is the most important decision anyone can make — a decision that has eternal significance, as well as family benefits while here on Earth. He's the center of our church and we want Him to be the center of your life too.


Our staff

The Church is described biblically as the “Bride of Christ”; We have an incredible team that helps to steward that relationship through worship, fellowship, equipping, prayer, study, baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
