Our Story

How it all started...

FBC DeKalb has been gathering for worship, to study the Bible,  and serve since God in our community since 1868.  Since that time we have found new ways to minister and grow.  Our first Women's ministry was organized in 1903 and our first Student Ministry was organized in 1913.  



Expanding the vision...

From 1868 to today FBC DeKalb is seeking to advance the Kingdom of God around the world. This means through our partnerships with other churches, and our partnership with church planting movements, we are seeking to take the Gospel to dark places and hard places.

Where we are headed...

Both welcoming and exciting, First Baptist Church of DeKalb is truly a special place for worship and for growth in your Christian faith.

Everything we do at First is about family, from children and student ministries to coming alongside parents in helping make Christ the center of our homes.
