Connect to Jesus ...first by opening the Bible to let his Word guide you. Then bring that Bible to worship services and class at First Baptist Church so we can help you build your Bridge to Jesus Christ.
Connect to Pastor Rob White - Pastor is available at the church during the week and on Sunday mornings. Visit us during worship on Sunday and bring your Bible to see how Pastor can help you build that bridge. Pastor is also available by phone at (563)323-2765 or click here to go to his contact page
