our History

First Baptist began October 14, 1990 holding its first service at Lexington Middle School. Prior to that day, 12,000 phone calls were made in the community to seek out those who did not regularly attend church. Upon discovering 1,200 un-churched families, we began to contact them through the mail and invite each one to our first service.

During those early days, the church continued to meet at the school. As the membership began to grow, the search for property on which a permanent facility would be built was under way. After much seeking and praying, the Lord made possible the purchase of 13 beautiful acres dotted with pecan trees.

We built a 46,000 sq. ft. of space to provide a Worship Center, Preschool facility, and a Children's ministry area. We have turned the old auditorium into the Student Center with a cafe and a game area. We are excited about our space and look forward to filling it up. However, our focus isn't on building buildings but on building disciples. We look forward to teaming with you and building a great work that honors God."
