Get To Know Us

Sweetwater First Baptist Church LogoFirst Baptist Church is a congregation of people from a variety of backgrounds with one common bond – we love Jesus Christ, and we love people in the name of Jesus.

We are all at different stages of our Christian lives, but we are united in our desire to worship Christ, experience Christ, and serve Christ.

We worship together to honor Jesus.
We learn together to grow in intimacy with Jesus.
And together, we help people in Jesus’ name—that they, too, may begin to experience the hope, peace and joy that only Jesus can provide.
