WelcomeWelcome to the online home of First Baptist Church Lake Jackson, a church with a rich history and an exciting future! FBCLJ is a Word centered, mission minded, and family oriented church, located in the heart of historic Lake Jackson. Whether you are new to our community or you have lived in Lake Jackson for many years, we invite you and your family to join us for worship. It is our prayer that you will experience the love of Christ as you worship, serve, and fellowship with our church family at FBCLJ.
As Pastor, it is my desire to encourage and equip the body of Christ to passionately pursue not only becoming disciples of Christ, but also ambassadors of Christ. I pray that God would be greatly glorified in us and through us, as we share Christ’s story of love and redemption at home, in the church, in our community, and around the world!
Please take some time to look over the helpful information below. We've included answers to some of the questions you may have when visiting FBCLJ for the first time. Enjoy!
Church Worship Services
Where is the church located?
We are in the heart of Lake Jackson at 401 Yaupon St. Please see a map and other key information about our location here.
Where do I go if I'm a first time visitor?
To make it easy, we recommend that all visitors come in the main entrance on Yaupon St. The main entrance is a set of double-glass doors just to the right of the big blue "First Baptist Church" sign (see pic to the right). You will find a nice crosswalk from our parking lot and a wide sidewalk with handrails that ushers you into the building. Once you enter the building, you will be met by a greeter who can assist you to the Welcome Center. From there, helpful folks will direct you (even escort you) to your meeting place.
When are your main services and ministries?
For starters, visitors typically like to know the times of our worship services and Sunday School small group time. Our Sunday School for all ages is each Sunday at 9:00 a.m. Our Sunday morning worship service is at 10:30 a.m. and our evening worship service is at 6:00 p.m. Of course, there is so much more going on. For more times, please see our full ministry schedule.
What should I wear when I come to church?
Whatever makes you comfortable. Our congregation is very diverse, as you will see guys wear everything from suits to jeans and casual shirt (and everything in between). We have ladies that wear dress pants and others wear dresses. It's not uncommon to see folks in shorts. Essentially, we want you to be yourself while being a part of a faith family that recognizes the importance of reverence and respect for our Lord.
Do you have a nursery for smaller children?
Yes. Please visit our Preschool Ministry page for more details.
What style of worship will I experience in worship services?
This is a tough one only because people tend to get tripped up by terms and preconceived notions. In our services, you will enjoy a balance of hymns, praise choruses, and the latest songs of adoration. You can expect to be lead by a worship leader assisted by an ensemble and a full choir. Our vocalists are backed by a fantastic five piece band complete with guitars, drums and keyboard and piano. At FBCLJ, there is freedom to worship whether you like to raise your hands, clap, shout or be perfectly still. We'll leave that between you and God!
You can also expect music specials like vocal solos or instrumentals. You'll see an occasional skit or video that compliments our time together.
Is your facility handicap accessible?
Yes. From our ramps and rails around our buildings to our large elevators and wide halls, our facility is easily accessible. Our water faucets, bathrooms and classrooms are outfitted to provide the care you may need.
