New Here Common Questions

We've put together some common questions below for our new visitors. These are just to cover the basics for our church: how to find us, what time our services meet, what to wear. Visiting a church for the first time can be an awkward experience. Our goal is to make you feel more comfortable at First Baptist from the moment you arrive on our campus.

We are located in the heart of Ocean Springs downtown at the corner of Washington and Porter Avenue. From Highway 90, turn South onto Washington and we're just a few blocks down the road.
Sunday School begins at 9:15 a.m. and Worship starts at 10:30 p.m. We also offer several discipleship classes on Sunday nights as well as programs for our children and student ministries. These will begin at 5:00 p.m.
You'll see people in everything from casual clothes to suits on Sundays. Our concern isn't what's on the outside, but what's on inside. Come as you are.
The majority of our campus parking is located behind the church, across the street from Bellande Ave. There is also Senior Adult parking directly adjacent to the sanctuary. Additional parking along the front and side of the sanctuary is also available.
Certainly! We have Sunday options for newborns through high school seniors. Each age group has a safe and loving environment where they can grow in their knowledge of the Bible. Children's ministries will meet in the Education building while Students will meet in the Student building.
We will post our latest discipleship class schedule in our bulletin. Classes will meet on Sunday and Wednesday afternoons. Our goal is to connect you to the Word while you connect with others in each study.
