Pastor's Greeting

Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Lincoln Gardens’ website! I hope you use this new and improved resource to learn more about how we are bringing disciples to Christ and improving not only our local, but, universal communities. At First Baptist, we pursue excellence in service, consecration in worship, fortitude in faith and valor in action. We are a body of believers who support the edification and charitable deeds worldwide through faith in action.

The cornerstone of our ministry is deeply rooted in five values: Worship, Discipleship, Fellowship, Stewardship and Pastoral Care, with Worship being foremost. I invite you to view our worship services online every Sunday at 9 and 11 a.m. EST. From teaching people to live debt free through our Dfree Ministry, to preventing foreclosed homes with our Housing Assistance and Recovery Program, to helping people find jobs in a tough economy via our job bank and finding abandoned children temporary and permanent homes through Harvest of Hope, First Baptist is committed to creating a legacy for our members and the community. We are arming people all over the world with information to make choices that will genuinely impact their lives.

We have programs for the youth to senior citizens and are transforming lives through Christian Education, Sunday School and Vacation Bible School. Now that you have a quick overview of First Baptist, I want you to know that you can access our website 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We will keep the content fresh, so it will continue to be a source of valuable information for you. I am committed to making your online experience a worthwhile one. Thank you for visiting and I look forward to seeing you again, soon.

God bless you!
DeForest B. Soaries, Jr.
