A new church, especially a large one can feel overwhelming. It is our goal to help you know what to expect and feel comfortable as soon as you arrive. We have a team of friendly faces ready to greet and guide you and/or your family during your first experience at First Baptist.

Join us for a Worship Service!

Each service is comprised of a combination of music, teaching, and prayer lasting around 70 minutes. Our Senior Pastor, Kenneth Lance preaches the majority of our services. Regardless of who preaches, the sermon is based on the same Bible verses for both services.

Traditional Service 8:30AM

Made up of traditional music and utilizes the hymnbook, organ, piano, and choir. This is typically a much smaller service. Please remember there is no child care services during the 8:30 worship service.

Blended Worship Service 11AM

Uses the best biblically and theologically rich modern praise music and the familiar traditional hymns. Piano and our praise band, choir and praise team are help lead in worship. We project the lyrics to aid in singing and videos and other technology are often woven in the service to enhance the flow of our worship and compliment the message.

Everyone is Welcome at FBC

Sunday morning worship services at First Baptist-Salisbury are open to all regardless of age, gender, religious belief, disability, handicap, race or ethnicity.
