We are a big church but we’re not pretentious and our doors are wide open to all who are seeking God. We’ve been around a long time (150 years) but God is always re-shaping us in new ways. Our congregation is made up of people spanning many generations, walks of life and stages of faith.



In worship we gather to praise God, to pray, to confess our sin, to share together what God is doing in our lives and in the world, and to respond to God in intentional ways. True worship always leads to transformed living.

There are many expressions of worship that honor God. Currently there are two distinct worship experiences each Sunday morning at First Baptist Decatur. Both services include singing, prayers, Bible readings, a message from Pastor Julie and opportunities to respond to God. We encourage you to choose the worship time and style that best connect you and your family to God.
