Welcome, Guests!

Whether it’s your first time at First Baptist Powell, you’ve been several times before, or you’re still thinking about visiting, we’re glad you’re here! We consider it an honor and a privilege to welcome guests of all ages and backgrounds to our church. We hope if you’ve already visited that you felt right at home. Please visit to let us know how we can better serve you.

Membership Matters

Membership Matters is a unique class offered for anyone who wants to join or is prayerfully considering becoming a member at First Baptist Powell. You are not making a commitment to join just by attending the class.



At First Baptist Powell, we offer various types of support group ministries including DivorceCare, DivorceCare for Kids, Single & Parenting, and GriefShare. All four groups will begin new sessions this month, so now is the perfect time to join! Everyone in our community is welcome, whether you’re a member of our church or not. Please click below to register.

Prayer Requests

We consider it a privilege to pray for you and your family. Please let us know how we can be interceding for you and how we can join you in rejoicing over answered prayers.

We are a gospel-centered community who loves God and others.
