Welcome to First Baptist Church of Decatur!
Whether this is your first time or your 100th visit with us, it is our prayer that you experience both God’s presence and a genuine welcome here. FBC Decatur is a vibrant and progressive community of faith located in the heart of Decatur, GA. Here you will find people who are:
learning to follow Jesus in everyday life;
encountering community through authentic relationships;
finding meaning by learning how to believe, not just what to believe; and
discovering purpose through making intentional, impactful contributions to the world around them.
It’s our hope that your story intersects with our story at FBCD, and that with God’s help, we might write something new and meaningful together!

Where do I park?
There are two main parking areas at First Baptist Church—an outside parking lot and a covered parking deck. Most first-time guests find it easiest to park in the outside lot to the right (North) of the Sanctuary Building.
You can also park in the upper or lower-levels of the parking deck on the South side of the building. You might have to take a ticket to get into the deck, but parking is FREE on Sundays, so you won't have to pay on the way out!
Where do I go inside the building?
From the outdoor parking area, enter the large covered entry way. This is the first floor of the Main Building (Sanctuary Building). Fresh Start worship is on this floor in Carreker Hall, and Sanctuary worship is up the elevator or stairs to the second floor. You may also enter the Sanctuary from the front lawn.
