First Baptist Church of Watseka

Welcome to

First Baptist Church


What We're All About

We exist to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ, encourage personal obedience to the Word of God and equip believers to grow in Christ. In doing this we strive to fulfill Christ's great commission.
"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you."
-Matthew 28:19-20 
  • Start with the Gospel!

    In Romans 1:16 the Apostle Paul says that the Gospel is "the power of God unto salvation to everyone who believes."
    Scripture tells us that to be saved each person must repent, or turn away from our sin, and trust in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Read More
  • Study the Word!

    Read the Bible each and every day to learn the Scriptures!
    Paul tells us that all Scripture is given by God and contains everything that Christians need to live a life that honors Him. (2 Tim. 3:16-17)
  • Get Connected!

    The Bible tells us that Christians should not neglect "the assembling of ourselves together." (Heb. 10:25)
    God wants you to connect with a good local church. It is our goal to be that church in our area. Please come visit us and see what God is doing at First Baptist.
  • Grow in Christ!

    God tells us that after we have been saved we should grow steadily in our spiritual walk becoming more like Christ in our thoughts and actions. This process of sanctification is facilitated by the Holy Spirit which indwells believers and illumines the meaning of the Scriptures to our minds.
