Reaching Odessa, the Permian Basin and the World

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 Media Ministry at FIRST ODESSA fulfills the mission of the church by engaging in all forms of technology to communicate the good news of the gospel and by creating environments for personally encountering Christ.

We strive to make it as convenient as possible to provide media and resources that will help you grow as a believer. If you’re out of town, you can live stream the Worship Service. If you want to listen to a message again or share with a friend, you can download our free mobile apps. The Church Library offers Bibles and other resources for every age. We have incredible resources to help support and encourage your walk.

Every week many volunteers behind the scenes control everything from audio and video to lighting... All to help us share the worship experience with as many people as possible. We would love to plug you into our area of ministry. Call Jeff at (432) 337-1941 and see if it might be for you!
