We’re located at 185 S Brunswick St, near downtown Jesup at the corner of Brunswick and Cherry Streets. If you are anywhere near the center of Jesup, just look for the tall steeple and head towards it.
We have parking in front of the sanctuary (including handicap parking). There are also parking spaces in the rear of the buildings and across the street from the E Plum St side.
Our greeters will help you into the building, and once inside, our ushers will help you to a seat. The worship center easily accommodates wheelchairs. We strive to be available to everyone regardless of physical or mental condition.

While you are in a Bible study class your child will also be in an age graded class with caring teachers who will help your child learn about God. During worship we offer “Extended Session” for those birth through age four. As the name implies, this time "extends" the learning that your child experiences in Bible study. For Kindergarten through Grade 5 we encourage Children's Worship groups but they may stay with you in worship if you feel it necessary.
If you arrive early, you can wait in the front lobby area and meet friends, or you can move on into the worship center and find a seat. As you enter the sanctuary you will receive a bulletin which gives you information about the ministries and activities of the church during coming weeks.
Don't worry. Our ushers will help you find a seat as quickly as possible. You can enter the sanctuary at any point in our service.
Before worship our greeters and ushers will warmly welcome you to our church. During worship our pastor will ask everyone to stand and greet those around them. Our ushers give a card to first time guests which you can use to let us know how to pray for you or meet whatever need you have. You can place that card in the offering plate.
Yes, we provide sign language during the service and it is shown on-line as well. Usually we use two forms during the service: 1) Signing Exact English, and 2) Pidgen.
While we encourage the practice of tithing among our members, our guests are not expected to give anything. At the end of the service as you exit, if you have filled in the guest card, you can place it in the offering plate.
Our Music Minister will often ask the congregation to stand or sit. We generally stand for the singing of congregational songs.
Messages last about 25-30 minutes and are based on the Bible. He will read scripture, make several points of application to our lives, and often includes humorous or motivational stories.
At the end of the pastor's message he will give an
invitation to anyone who does not have a personal relationship with Jesus
Christ to accept Jesus. He will also ask those who would like to become part of
our church family to come forward. We sing a song during this time so that
people can come to the front and talk to our pastor or one of our other
ministers about their needs. If you would like to become a part of First
Baptist Church you can join:
By profession of faith - if you are not yet a Christian but would like to be, or if you are a Christian and have never been baptized by immersion as a believer, a prayer partner will pray with you and guide you in this decision.
By transfer of letter - If you are a Christian and a member of another church we will write to that church and request that a letter of transfer be sent.
By statement - If you are a Christian and have been baptized as a believer, but do not have a current membership in another church, we can receive your membership on your statement of having received Christ and been baptized.
