This ministry is the primary discipleship ministry of First Baptist Powell. The objective of LifeGroups is to provide a setting that encourages spiritual growth and assimilation into our faith family.


Community Groups enable us to share life together in God’s community. It’s a place where we can encourage and build up one another to be successful followers of Jesus Christ.


Our College and Career Ministry is made up of college-aged and young career adults. Our desire is to see Christ proclaimed and glorified on college campuses, in the workplace, and in our daily interactions. 


At First Baptist Powell, we welcome and cherish those who are single in the church! Paul says in 1 Corinthians 7:7-8 that being single is a good thing and a gift from God, and we whole-heartedly agree.

Core Classes begin August 4, 2021. A Core Class is a short-term group focused on a singular topic or Bible book. These classes will provide much of the core knowledge that every disciple needs. We will begin our new Core Classes with our first class, “What Does FBP Believe: A Study of the Abstract of Principles and Baptist Faith and Message 2000.” Pastors Perry and Tim will co-lead this 10 week study. We will meet each Wednesday evening 6:30—7:45 pm in the Main Worship Center. 


First Baptist Powell Counseling Ministries offers Biblical counseling services to those in our East Tennessee community. We provide counseling for individuals, couples, and families.
