The First Baptist Church Institute is a place to jump in where you are. If you are new to our church, we recommend the Intro track. From there the Basic track will provide teaching on things every Christian needs to know. If you're looking for practical "where do I go from here" kind of training, the Next Steps track is for you. Advanced courses are available from time to time for those wanting to dive deep. There is something for everyone (more description below).
How do I sign up? sign up for a class on this page!
There are four tracks offered--but you can sign up for just one class out of any track if that is what you want!
INTRO TRACK. This track is a rotation of 4 classes for the person who is new to First Baptist Church. It introduces our ministry and explains baptism and church membership. If a Southern Baptist Church is new to you, this might be a good place to start!
BASIC TRACK. This track covers topics of basic discipleship: prayer, Bible reading, spiritual growth, etc. It is a great place for newer believers or even seasoned believers who want a refresher course in the basics!
NEXT STEPS TRACK. This track is designed to have a “where do I go from here?” feel. Points of engagement are discussed, from opportunities in the church to opportunities abroad. Expect to be challenged.
ADVANCED TRACK. This track is for those who want to dig deeper. Classes are not offered every week (watch the bulletin or website). It will sometimes deal with controversial matters in the news, or it may just take on difficult themes Christians struggle to understand.
