We welcome you to the website of First Baptist Church of Ellisville. We are a loving fellowship with a vision of making a difference in our world. We hope you will come visit one of our services/Bible studies and experience Ellisville in person. Our goal is to provide you with some helpful information about our church and our schedule.
Ellisville is a purpose driven church and our goal is to reach West St. Louis County and beyond with the “Good News” of Jesus Christ. We hope you will make a connection with us and see what God is doing in us and through us.
THE PURPOSES OF OUR CHURCH
We are a purpose-driven church functioning around these five purposes:
- Evangelism/Missions—Sharing the “Good News” with the world
- Discipleship—Sharing in growth and accountability
- Fellowship—Sharing with each other
- Ministry—Sharing our gifts to meet needs
- Worship—Sharing our hearts with God
We have one corporate worship service each Sunday morning at 10:30 a.m.
We also have one Bible study hour each Sunday at 9:00am.
Every service has excellent music and Biblical, life-changing messages. Our ABF’s (Adult Bible Fellowships) are enriching and challenging as we grow in Christ. We recommend that you arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled activity so you don’t feel rushed.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT ON MY FIRST VISIT?
From the moment that you pull onto our parking lot, you will be made to feel at home. Our guests have reserved parking spaces in front of our Auditorium. Our greeters on the parking lot will assist you and see that you get to our Welcome Center in our foyer. Our greeters will be poised and ready to serve you in finding your way to Bible study or worship and also answer any questions that you might have. We want you to relax and enjoy the services. Our music ministry features a diversity of gifted artists that have the purpose of engaging you in worship and preparing your hearts to hear a Biblically based message that applies the Bible to every day life.
WHAT ABOUT MY CHILDREN?
If you have children, you will want to take advantage of our safe and secure children’s services designed for their age group. Your child’s security is a primary goal, as we make sure they are safely taken to their own room where they will be with children their own age and will be presented with God’s truth in fun and innovative ways. We have age-graded classes and curriculum and “GREAT Adventure” – our children’s worship and activity hour is a high-energy time of learning and growing.
DO YOU HAVE SOMETHING FOR STUDENTS?
Absolutely! If you are in middle school or a high school, Ellisville is the place to be.
Sunday mornings we have Sunday School. This is a great opportunity to study God's Word and develop friendships with peers.
Sunday evenings we have D Groups (Discipleship Groups). This is a small group experience of learning and challenge and growth.
Wednesday evening is our youth worship time when our students enjoy music, videos, a relevant message and high-energy worship.
We have camps, retreats and mission trips to World Changers or local/national/international mission opportunities each year.
THIS IS YOUR INVITATION TO GET INVOLVED WITH GOD!
From our Bible study ministries to our music ministry to mission enterprises to our Celebrate Recovery to our ministries of service, Ellisville encourages you to get involved and use the gifts that God has given you. We have a sense that God has called us and equipped us to do something much larger than ourselves for His glory. And while we are doing so, it is so fulfilling to fellowship and worship with God’s people called FBC Ellisville. We hope you will join us and experience it for yourselves.
