First Baptist Church is an independent Baptist congregation.

We strive to be loving and obedient disciples of Jesus Christ and to make new disciples of Christ in the Woodville area and around the world.

Oh, give thanks to the LORD!
Call upon His name;
Make known His deeds among the peoples!
9Sing to Him, sing psalms to Him;
Talk of all His wondrous works!
10Glory in His holy name;
Let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the LORD!
11Seek the LORD and His strength;
Seek His face evermore! 1 Chronicles 16:8–11 (NKJV)

Bring of the Fruit of the Land


When Moses sent the spies into the land of Canaan, at the command of God, he instructed them, “Bring some of the fruit of the land” (Numb. 13:20). The land had been promised, but it would be helpful for the people to know what to expect when they entered the land. The result was, “Then they came to the Valley of Eshcol, and there cut down a branch with one cluster of grapes; they carried it between two of them on a pole. They also brought some of the pomegranates and figs” (numb. 13:23). Its always good to know what to expect when entering a strange land.
