First Time Here?

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 in His world. 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 in His world. 

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!

Most services last somewhere around an hour long, and are not age-distinct. About half way through our morning Worship we dismiss kids to Island Kids Worship, an age appropriate interactive worship experience for them. Our Worship service is full of vibrant friendly people longing for a deep connection with God and with you, we hope you will attend. 


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 Worship services. You can find out more detail on the links below:

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.
