Welcome to First Baptist Church Tupelo!

If I choose to worship at First Baptist, what should I expect?

You should expect to worship with a group of people who love the Lord and seek to honor Him in all we do. First Baptist is a church with a passion for missions and a love for people. It is our desire that everyone who attends a worship service at FBC Tupelo will personally experience the Lord. We honor God's supreme value and worth in our personal lives and in our corporate worship. Worship is a matter of the heart, an experience of spirit and truth. Join us each Sunday and Wednesday to worship our great God!

What type of worship service does First Baptist have?

Located at 300 North Church Street in Tupelo, our goal is to give each individual multiple opportunities to Connect in and through worship. We currently have three worship services. The gospel message is the same, no matter which service you choose to attend.  

  • 8:15 a.m. Worship in the Sanctuary is a blended service of traditional and contemporary music. This service has the same structure as the 11:00 a.m. service.
  • 9:45 a.m. Worship in the Fellowship Hall will be a more contemporary, relaxed service. Music is band-led.
  • 11:00 a.m. Worship in the Sanctuary is a blended service of traditional and contemporary music. This service has the same structure as the 8:15 a.m. service.

Where will I park?

Reserved visitors’ parking spaces are clearly marked immediately adjacent to the worship area, regardless of the service you choose to attend.

How will I know where to go?

First Baptist has greeters stationed on the east and west sides of the building, as well as greeters strategically located inside the building. Any greeter will be happy to direct or assist you to any area you need to reach.

What time should I arrive for worship?

It is a good idea to arrive ten to fifteen minutes before the service begins. That will allow plenty of time to park and find the location of the worship service or Grow Groups you wish to attend. Coffee is available in the Grand Hall, which is adjacent to the Fellowship Hall.

What is the dress code at First Baptist?

There is no formal dress code at First Baptist. You are welcome to come casual to any service, but the 9:45 a.m. worship service will be the most casual. You can expect to see people dressed in suits and dresses, casual slacks, or jeans. We want you to be comfortable as you worship with us, and we believe that God is more concerned with the condition of the heart than the dress code.

What is available for my children during worship and Grow Group time?

Preschoolers and children will have Grow Groups at the same time as adults. Classes are offered for each age group. During worship services, preschoolers remain in Extended Session. FBC volunteers manage the Extended Sessions with guidance from the Preschool Director. Older children (fours and fives) attend worship with parents.
