Welcome to the First Baptist Church of McAllen website.
If you are looking for a church home, we invite you to attend one of our Small Group Sunday School Classes.
It is our desire at First Baptist Church to provide the unbeliever a clear path to the Savior and the believer a clear path to discipleship.
From salvation to service it is our desire to
see people draw closer to God through a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope
and a future." Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV)
In 1908, when there was no church building in the township of McAllen, a faithful group gathered in an open lumber yard with others of like faith to worship. Their desire to meet in a building of their own led them to a shared location with the Presbyterians, a school building, and even a theater. The Rio Grande Valley was a sparse and turbulent place. Yet neither hurricanes nor fires deterred our predecessors from their mission to worship together and to provide a lighthouse for the lost.
Today, we remain a Christ-centered church focusing on
the essentials of Evangelism, Discipleship and Ministry. In these hundred plus years, God has provided a house where we have dedicated our children, baptized new believers, joined in marriage, remembered the deceased, knelt in supplication, cried in repentance and rejoiced in healing.
The Lord has truly blessed our church because it is a place where the Word has been faithfully preached, love for our Lord is kept in our hearts and lives have been changed.
Come join us, and be a part of our church family!
