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.

sunday service liturgy

We are under the conviction that our faith is shaped not only by the content of our service, but also the order itself. Here at FBP, the gospel shapes our worship service order. The content of our liturgy (songs, prayers, scripture readings, etc.) is gospel saturated as we worship Jesus. Our music is accompanied by our band and draws from a wide range of songs both historic and new. Scripture readings are led by various members of our church, our elders, and our pastors. During various seasons throughout the year such as Advent and Holy Week, our orchestra and choir will also join in leading us in worship through song. To familiarize yourself with the songs that we will be singing this coming Sunday, you can visit our Sunday Mornings Page. To learn more about our Sunday Service Liturgy and how you might be able to serve, 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 Perry 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.
