First Baptist Church is a church made up of people just like you! You will not find a perfect church with perfect people but a body of hurting, broken, and searching people who have been set free by the blood of Jesus Christ and have been given the greatest mission of sharing in the gospel of Jesus Christ.


First Baptist Church started in 1896. During these 100 plus years, we have had twenty-six pastors help us minister to and care for the people in the city of Odessa. God has blessed us in every way, with pastors, staff and lay people serving the Lord and touching the lives of people.  We invite you to become a part of this great history of First Baptist Church.

The Family Life Center of FBC has the purpose of intoducing foundational components of a healthy physical life for the purpose of developing healthy spiritual lives.  This plan is accomplished through the implementation of four foundational components of life:
1)  Physical:  We want to provide a safe, fun environment that promotes physical fitness and gives opportunity for people to train thier physical bodies through an encouraging experience.
2)  Discipline:  There are few areas in the world today where discipline is practiced and exampled better today than through the medium of sports, recreation, and physical fitness.   We desire to provide a safe encouraging environment for children/adults to learn this important life virtue.
3)  Social:  We want children/adults to experience the benefits of teamwork and competition.  It is through teamwork/competition people have the opportunity to celebrate life successes and triumph over life's disappointments...together!
4)  Spiritual:  We believe God sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, into the world so that we might have life and have it to the fullest.  Our Recreation Ministry's primary purpose to build a bridge to people so they can experience Jesus Christ and His forgiveness!
