Our teaching style
At First Baptist Powell, we believe the best way to preach the Bible is expositionally, believing that every Word in the Bible is inspired and God-breathed, and therefore must be dealt with accordingly. We believe in the authority of the Word, and we proclaim it without hesitation. When you leave the service, you can know you have heard the Word of God preached, and then you are able to apply Biblical truths to your life which will bring you into closer fellowship with Jesus Christ and believers. You will hear the Gospel proclaimed boldly and without reservation.
Worship through music
We are a church that loves to worship our Lord and Savior! Our corporate gatherings are centered around the preaching of God’s Word. Prayer, Scripture reading, and congregational singing are also integral parts of each worship service. Our music is led by a dynamic worship choir and an outstanding team of instrumentalists. What you will notice most of all is how engaged the congregation is in our worship. There’s nothing more powerful than joining your voice to hundreds of others in the passionate praise of Jesus Christ! To learn more about how and why we worship through music at First Baptist Powell, visit our Worship Ministry page.
joining the church
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. It is taught by Pastor Phil Jones to give those interested in joining our church family information about the church structure, FBP’s history, and what we believe the Bible says regarding the importance of church membership. Visit our Membership Matters page to find the next available course and to sign up.
