About Us

OUR MISSION
______

Our mission is to help lead people into an ever growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating a dynamic environment for authentic worship and effective communication,  while developing genuine community with each other


First Baptist Church of Gautier is a dynamic community of faith, committed to the reverent and joyful worship of God, local and global missionary engagement,
and excellence in the musical arts.

We are located on the beautiful Gulf Coast in a community driven family.  Our church home is a unique, Christ-centered fellowship, and with roots in the Baptist tradition. We’re known for our welcoming spirit and engaging ministries, where opportunities abound for people of all ages and abilities to grow in faith and share their gifts.

Our church will delight and challenge you. Not only will you see the comforts of genuine fellowship, but you will also encounter the Scriptures through worship and Bible study, and be transformed more into the likeness of Christ. To cross the threshold here is to embark on an adventure. You will have a share in Jesus' mission, to “bring good news to the poor…to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor” (Luke 4:18-19).

Come and see what signs and wonders await us all, as we learn and grow in faith as beloved children of God…

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13
