SERVICE TIMES & LOCATION:
3 Great Services…1 Awesome Message!
Saturday Evening Worship at 6:00 pm
You’re invited to experience Jesus in a new way at our more laid-back Saturday service. You’ll have the opportunity to respond to His radical love for us through passionate worship songs, some old and some new. The Word of God is living and active, so the message you hear will focus on helping you apply the ancient text of Scripture to your 21st century life.
Sunday Mornings at 9:30 am and 11:00 am
Your personal relationship with our Savior is the most important thing to us. We want you to draw closer to Him through singing, praying, listening, and joining with other believers on Sunday morning. Godly community and biblical teaching are life changing, and God has a plan for what He wants to do in your life at First Baptist Church of Covington.
At the 9:30 am service, you’ll hear familiar inspirational hymns and songs and join in worship with the choir and orchestra. God moves through traditional church music, and the sermon is the same in both services each week.
At the 11:00 am service, we invite you to participate in contemporary worship by joining in song with our dynamic worship team. The sermon will help you internalize the Word of God, applying God’s timeless truth to your present day context.
What is First Baptist Church of Covington like?
We aren’t perfect, but Jesus is. Come as you are. There’s no dress code here, so wear what allows you to focus on worship. Whether you are passionate about Jesus, still trying to figure it out, or have honest doubts and reservations, you are welcome at FBC Covington. You will be greeted when you walk through the door and embraced by those around you in the Worship Center. Every Sunday we pray, receive verse-by-verse teaching from the Bible, and worship God through different styles of music.

These groups are simple gatherings of people from all walks of life who share a common purpose – to grow in the faith. Built on the truth of Scripture, Connect Groups are the heart of community at FBC Covington. Find your group by clicking here.

The baptistry area is intimately positioned to the left of the room, allowing for friends and family to have a special view of their loved one following the Lord in baptism. Our prayer is that those who enter will encounter God and His word in a special way through the preaching and worship ministry of the church.
