Senior Pastor David Johnson

At First Baptist Church we believe the Bible is the verbally inspired Word of God and is, therefore, the authorative answer to the needs of man today. We take Paul's command to "Preach the Word!" very seriously. I try to preach in a way that seeks to understand the Word properly and apply it practically.

Our priority is to glorify God (1 Cor. 10:13). All other church goals fall under this one, over-arching goal. Our teaching, preaching, fellowship, and evangelism begins with God's will rather than man's needs. We do not embrace the church growth movement which places an emphasis on felt needs and entertainment to reach the unchurched. We believe the gospel in itself is the power of salvation. As believers, we are to be distinct from the world rather than mimic it. We gather together on Sunday to worship our Lord in spirit and truth. Therefore, the emphasis of our worship service, both in music and proclamation, is upon the great things God has revealed in Scripture.

It is our prayer that you have trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. If you have not, we would be delighted to help you. If you do not have a church home, consider this your personal invitation to worship with us. Feel free to contact us for additional information. We'd be happy to assist you in any way we can.


Youth Pastor Doug Stewart

The goal for the Youth Group of First Baptist Church of Grove City is to see teens develop  a relationship with a personal Savior, Jesus Christ; and equip teens for Christ-like service.

We aim to glorify God by moving teens to a greater love for God and a greater love for people, resulting in a greater ability to influence their world.
