What to Expect
When you set foot on the campus of First Baptist Church Naples you will discover a warm group of real people dedicated to following our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We seek to understand our cultural context and share the love & truth of Jesus Christ with everyone in our community. From the moment you walk up to the building you can expect…
A Warm Greeting
A heartfelt greeting and a lovingly helpful hand is what makes this church a church. Our Connection Point, located at the main entrance, is the perfect place to start when you arrive on campus. No matter what question you might have, just ask. Our greeters are here to help you get settled and find your way.
We encourage you to check out our Lighthouse Cafe' and grab some coffee before/after a worship service. Located in our Commons, adjacent to our Lighthouse Bookstore, Our cafe has plenty of beverages & snacks to choose from and provides a great atmosphere to connect with old friends & get to know new ones.
Fun for the whole family
Our campus is a great place where friendships can form and relationships deepen. We have activities for all ages on the weekend, including a nursery for newborns and preschool activities so parents can whole-heartedly focus on worship (although children are welcome in the service as well). We are a church family that is serious about joy: true joy...the kind of joy that comes from real connection with God and others.
When you worship with us, you'll be surrounded by people that love God, love each other and love you. Expect people to say something like, “Hi, we haven’t met before, is this your first time?”. Expect for people to reach out to you in love and genuinely care about you. We recognize that none of us is perfect (except Jesus Himself) and we strive to create an attitude and atmosphere of grace.
We are so blessed to have wonderful musicians that provide great atmospheres of worship. Whether you attend one of our band-led services (Saturdays at 6pm & Sundays & 11am) or one of our Choir & Orchestra led services (Sundays at 9:30am & 11am seasonally), you'll be led to authentically praise God and hear from His Word. From hymns that have been around for centuries to songs that haven't event hit the radio yet, music is a vehicle of worshiping the Lord with all our heart, soul, mind & strength.
In a world where everything seems to be changing so rapidly, we are thankful that there is one thing that never changes: God's Truth. Each time we gather, we seek to explore, understand and apply God’s truth to our lives at every level in a spirit of love. Whether it's a message from Dr. Wicker, small group discussion in one of our Bible & Life Groups, or an encouragement from one of our gifted Bible teachers in a Midweek Discipleship meeting, you will find a growing variety of resources to help you grow in God’s truth.
