First Baptist Church of Webster
We aren’t a big flashy church; there are times that we sing off key and even fumble with words when we are called on to pray. You won’t find perfect people in our church family… We have scars, sins, and baggage but because of our Lord Jesus Christ, we have Hope. Praise God we are Loved, Forgiven, and are a work in progress!
Founded in 1891, known as a ‘praying church’, we are located in the Central Florida community of Webster, famous for one of the states largest outdoor farmers market. We preach and teach God’s Word. We still sing the same beautiful hymns of yesteryear, while incorporating current praise and worship with contemporary and gospel music.
We are all on a journey together to know God better. Whether your journey just began or you have known God for years, there are opportunities here to deepen your relationship with God.

We are loving our Lord Jesus Christ passionately.
We are loving our community unconditionally.
We are First Baptist Church of Webster.
