Who We Are

Who We Are

Welcome to Newport First Baptist Church! We want to introduce Jesus to everybody in our town and community - to be a place where you feel welcome and find the tools you need to discover what it means to be a follower of Jesus.

We hope you’ll join us this weekend for our Sunday Celebration at 10:15 am. We want you to meet God as we worship Him through music, prayer and a message from the Bible - His guide book for us to help us live an amazing life with Jesus.

Some Common Questions

What kind of church are you?

We are an independent Baptist Church. This means we have a Baptist heritage but are not members of any specific Baptist group. We have our own leadership and use the Bible as our guideline for governing ourselves.

Are you wheelchair accessible?

Our building has two wheelchair accessible entrances, one on our basement level and one going into our fellowship hall. A spacious wheelchair lift allows access to our main floor. Bathrooms on the main floor are also designed for ease of use.

What do you have for kids?

Every Sunday morning at 9am, kids learn about God for an hour, getting to experience God's Great Adventure! (Adults meet together for learning as well.) Most Sundays, after we sing songs together, kids run downstairs for their own stories and activities. Various special children's events happen throughout the year as well such as VBS and Family Fun nights.

How about my baby or toddler?

We enjoy having little ones in our service, don't mind a bit. But, just in case you want a place for your little ones, we have a staffed nursery where they can play to their heart's content.

Is there a way for my teenager to get involved?

Come check out The Immortals - a group for teens (7th Grade - high school seniors). We get together to have fun learning how to live a life of Immortality. Our youth are also involved in many other aspects of our church, from service projects to music to teaching and leading the whole service every fifth Sunday - Youth Sunday finds the morning filled with the energy and unique perspective only our young Jesus followers can bring.

I'm not a kid, a teen or an "older" adult. Can I find somewhere I belong?

You bet! Every third and fourth Monday evening at 6PM young adults (high school graduates through about 25) get together for Real 4 Life - a group of people learning how to "do life" as an adult. We often share dinner, learn about some of the skills that make life easier such as sewing on a button, checking the oil in a car, basic home repairs and the like. As we learn the basics of adult life, we also discover the basics of Christian life through Bible exploration and discussion.

What do you believe?

We believe that Jesus is God and living a life with Him is the ONLY way to live. The Bible is God's guide book to teach us how to live that life. Check out Our Beliefs for more.
