We Purpose to Worship God, Grow in Relationship with Jesus, Introduce Others to Him, & Care for Each Other, Our Community & Our World.

First Baptist Church of Lansdale is an American Baptist Church.
A description of how churches like ours identify themselves and what we believe can be found here in the
We are also a part of the

First Baptist Church of Lansdale
is a bible centered church and we believe:
  • The triune God, who is eternally one God in three persons (Matthew 28:19, 2 Corinthians 13:14). This one, triune God is most clearly revealed to us in the incarnate Son, Jesus Christ our Lord (John 1:18, Hebrews 1:1-2).
  • The Good News of the atoning death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and salvation from sin and death for fallen humanity by grace through faith in Him (Romans 10:9-10, Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • The Bible, composed of the Old and New Testaments, as the divinely inspired Word of God, the final written authority and trustworthy for faith and practice (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
  • The sovereignty of God realized in the Lordship of Christ over all creation, and the call to proclaim the Gospel and make disciples of all nations in the power and Holy Spirit in anticipation of the day of Christ’s return and the making of all things new (Matthew 28:18-20).
  • A common unity with believers in Christ everywhere as His one true Church, while celebrating our distinctive heritage as Baptists (Ephesians 4:4-6). These distintictives include an understanding of the local church as autonomous with regard to its government, and composed of believers who have been baptized by immersion upon credible confession of their faith. The church gathers regularly to worship, to celebrate the Lord’s Supper, to edify one another, and to reach out to the world around us (Acts 2:41-47).
“Is to be the light and voice of Jesus Christ in broken world by bringing the message of the gospel through word and deed.”
“Is to see people of all ages become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ, to grow in faith and to serve others.”
We will be a COMMITTED people to God’s word in worship and growing in relationship with Jesus Christ. 
We will be a CONNECTING people in striving to grow the fellowship of believers by introducing people to the transforming work of Jesus Christ and through motivating people to use their talents in the life of the church.
We will be a CARING people reaching out with the love of Christ to all people in our community and around the world.
Just as a body, though one, has many
parts, but all its many parts form one
body, so it is with Christ.
I Corinthians 12:12

A Place to Participate and Serve


We’d love to have you join us for a Sunday worship service!
We have wonderful worship music that includes both contemporary and traditional styles. Our Praise Team under Music Director Janet Gross leads us in new and favorite praise songs and choruses. We also sing hymns accompanied by our magnificent pipe organ.
Scripture holds a central place, with in-depth messages from the Bible that bring you to God and help shape how you think and live.


Our Youth Group, “EPIC”, is led by a great team of volunteer leaders.
Epic is for students in 6th-12th grades and regularly meets Wednesday evenings during the school year.
Epic consists of various activities, Bible lessons, snack, service opportunities and much more!.
Contact the church at 215-855-3457 to ask for a Youth Calendar.


We have many opportunities to minister to Children at FBCL.
The nursery is available for parents to use during the service. The Sunday morning worship service is streamed in this room during the service as well.
Children’s Church
Children in Pre-K-3rd grade will be dismissed during the service for Children’s Church for a time of lesson, activity, and fun.
AWANA is done for the year and will resume in September.
More information can be found on our AWANA page




Every Wednesday from 7:00-8:00 pm we gather for a mid-week bible study.
Pastor Eric leads the bible study every week with a passion to bring God’s word alive.  We study different people of the bible, books of the bible and have special nights focusing on special topics.
Every week we take time to and have a time of prayer before we study God’s word. 


Our church values missions! We believe we are a part of God’s mission that was announced in the person of Jesus Christ, and so we follow God into that mission of sharing the good news and making a positive difference in the world. Nearly a quarter of all our church’s receipts are given to other mission ministries we support.

FBCL supports various ministries and missionaries across the world. We regularly support a number of missionaries through the International Ministries of ABC, as well as several special mission offerings through the year. We support institutions that include seminaries, universities, camps and retirement homes. Causes closer to home include feeding the homeless, chaplaincy programs, and resources for troubled pregnancies.



The Senior Saints at FBCL are very active and provide a host of activities for folks in their later years.
 Weekly they host opportunities to gather for dinners, special programs, a coloring group, and knitting activities.
Every Sunday after church many of our Saints gather for coffee and donuts for a time of fellowship in Judson Hall.
Another highlight of the Senior Saints is the special trips they take to Sight & Sound or different dinner theaters.
A shout out to the retired folks who come out every other Tuesday to paint, clean and fix things around the church





As with many Churches, we have good capabilities for Sound and AV throughout our facility.
We have a small team of Sound and AV techs that help produce our worship services each week and throughout the week for special services and activities.  They setup sound, make sure the Mics are turned on/off as needed, and record the services.
We also have a team to create and run the presentations to enhance the worship experience through AV.  This includes announcements, lyric slides, scripture, and video.
If Media/Tech is where you feel gifted in any way at all, you can definitely find a place to minister in this area at FBCL.


We continue to seek out ways to reach out into Lansdale and the surrounding communities to serve those in need and to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.  We believe that Jesus can meet all our needs whether they are physical, emotional and or spiritual. (Phil. 4:19)
Through different ministries, we strive to reach out to help individuals and families. Every couple of months we will host community events to reach into the local community with the love of Christ.
We are striving to become an Acts 2 church, and we will heed the call to be devoted to serving, caring and building God’s church for His purposes in
our time.


We do have a small food cupboard we maintain to help people in emergency situations.  This is kept running by donations of food and money (through our fellowship fund and directly) via members and friends of FBCL.
If you would like to donate to this Ministry, please contact the church office at 215-855-3457.
If you would like to participate in this ministry by helping maintain the inventory and buying items as needed, etc, you should also contact the Church Office at the number above and someone will get in touch with you on how to get started.
If you need access to the services of our food cupboard and are in need of food, the best path to follow is to come to the Church and speak with one of our Pastors who can help you gain access to the resources FBCL can provide.
