Our Worship service is full of vibrant friendly people longing for a deep connection with God and with you. We hope you will join us.

Wednesday evening activities begin with a brown bag supper-- bring your meal and we'll provide the facilities and fellowship! Afterward, we have age appropriate activities for children and young people from age 2 through high school while the adults gather for prayer.

What to Expect

Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over 175 years now it has been our mission to live out  God's word. That means that no matter where you have come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out God's word.

Here's all you need to know before you show up for your first Sunday morning: Come as you are. Although our time will be taken up by singing, teaching and praying, you don't need any manual to figure out how to fit in. Jesus simply says: "Come to me" and we say the same. Just come as you are!


We believe that worshiping is central to the life of every believer. That is why Worship is one of the core values at First Baptist Galveston. It is something that every believer from the youngest child to the oldest adult is, and should be, engaged in. At First we desire to create a vibrant atmosphere of worship where anyone who attends can connect in a deep, meaningful, and spiritual way with God and with one another. 

We currently offer two Sunday worship activities.

    9:15 a.m.     Bible Study (small groups)
      Located in the Classroom Building north of the Sanctuary.

      Our greeters at the door will help you find a group to join. There are many groups and they can very according to age, sex, and marital status.

    10:30 p.m.    Worship
      Our worship begins with an exciting blend of favorite hymns and contemporary Christian music, and continues with preaching of God's word while the younger children depart to participage in Island Kids Church.

Island Kids Worship

At Galveston's First Baptist, worship is not something that is just for adults, or only done on an adult level. We believe that everyone regardless of age deserves a unique worship experience. That is why we have our Island Kids worship during the second half of our main worship service on Sunday Morning. 

Children ages K-5th are invited to join adult leaders in the chapel for a fun age-appropriate interactive worship experience. If you are here for the first time, please come forward with your child(en), we will make sure you know where your child will be (in the Chapel of the Classroom Building) and that she is safe.
