Where faith and life meet

For a long time, First Baptist Church has been known as the church on the corner of Twelfth and Chestnut in downtown Bowling Green.  We believe God has called us to this location to make an even greater connection - to be the place where faith and life meet.


Jesus came so that our whole lives might be transformed by His Gospel. He came to give hope to the hopeless, forgiveness to the sinful, and life to the spiritually dead.  He came to bring us into relationship with God, and when we walk with God, nothing stays the same.


If you are ready to walk in a faith that transforms your whole life - both now and forever - and blesses the world around you, come join us.  We have a place for you where faith and life meet.

Support the ministry of First Baptist Church

God has called us to love and worship Him with every part of our lives - including our finances. The Bible says that God gives us His money to steward for His purposes, and part of that stewardship is to give back to Him a portion of that which He has given us. The standard to which God calls us is the tithe, which is ten percent of our income.


What happens to the money you give to First Baptist Church? Put simply, it is used to fund the ministries of the church so that people might be able to follow Jesus and find life in Him. Specifically, the money you give funds our Ministry in Action Budget, which is used to fund the church's various ministries, support missionaries and ministries around the world, maintain church facilities, and support church personnel. 


At First Baptist Church, we take God's money very seriously. All financial assets of the church are managed by a Treasurer, Assistant Treasurer, and Finance & Investments Team. If you have questions about the church budget or financial reports, please be sure to attend our bimonthly Church Business Conferences in which full financial reports are given. You can also contact the Church Office for more information.
