Minister of Adults Search

Located eight blocks from the University of Arkansas, First Baptist Church Fayetteville has long been known for the variety of people who are members. They represent every social and economic classification, multiple ethnicities and nationalities, and every living generation. A scholar, a farmer/carpenter, and a pioneer preacher who founded the church nearly 170 years ago launched a congregation whose cultural distinctions fade as they unite together in a common purpose to "Connect, Grow, Serve, and Go" in order to make disciples of Jesus Christ from Northwest Arkansas to the ends of the earth. As an autonomous local church we join with other churches in the Washington-Madison Baptist Association, the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention to do together what no one church can do alone.

Ephesians 4:1-6

"Therefore I, the prisoner of the Lord, implore you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, showing tolerance for one another in love, being diligent to preserve the unit of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body and one Spirit, just as also you were called in one hope of your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all who is over all and through all and in all."
