Through Worship, Service, and Small Groups


Welcome! Thanks for being with us here at First Baptist Church of West Palm Beach! We are grateful that God has led you to this dynamic church. God is doing mighty things in our midst, and it is exciting to be part of a church body that experiences the hand of God in such miraculous ways. You will find many ministries in place that will assist you in your spiritual growth and allow you the opportunity to meet other believers. I encourage you to check out our Bible Study classes. They offer you the opportunity to meet people in a smaller, more intimate setting, along with receiving instruction from the Word of God. You will be challenged and encouraged. We offer many vibrant ministries for children, youth, college, adults, ... all ages and stages. You will find information in this brochure about these and our other ministries. The greatest advice that I can give to you is—get connected! You will love it, and there is no greater joy than experiencing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ! If we can be of assistance to you in any way, please call our church office. Our staff is here to help you and to answer any questions that you might have. God Bless,

Kevin P. Mahoney Executive Pastor

Developing Families Children’s Ministries Birth through Grade 5 We believe the future of our world lies in the minds, hands, and hearts of our children. As we invest God’s truths in the children of today, we can impact tomorrow for Jesus Christ through these future leaders of families, communities, and the world. It is our desire to join with parents in teaching and training kids to become followers of Christ. We facilitate this process by offering a variety of learning experiences on Wednesdays, Sundays and through special events just for children (from birth through grade 5). For more information, contact us at lthornton@fbcwpb.org or call (561) 650-7400, ext. 7455.

Students—bring your friends and experience the awesomeness of life as God intended! For more info, call (561) 650-7400, ext. 7478.
