Welcome to

First Baptist Church

of Odem!

Our vision is to make a positive impact upon our community by providing a place where all are welcome, and where individuals and families can grow  in faith and discover God's plan for their lives.

We are committed to making a positive impact  by, and helping others experience the "perfect peace" that comes from faith in Jesus Christ, and obedience to the Holy Spirit.

We invite you to join us this Sunday for an encouraging worship service.  We pray that you will feel the presence of the Holy Spirit as we worship together through music, prayer and a message from God's word, the Holy Bible.

Everyone is welcome!

"It's Not Just Church, It's Life"

We want you here!

  • Sanctuary Renovation

    You might see signs of building renovation and/or construction outside the church sanctuary and fellowship hall in the coming weeks.  The church voted to renovate the sanctuary and work has begun.  Required demolition is underway inside the sanctuary.  Actual design plans for the sanctuary are yet to be completed and presented to the church for input and approval.  If you have any questions please contact the church office or Rickey Rackley, Sanctuary Renovation Committee Chairperson.

  • Parents & Children Spring Fling at the Lake

    The Children's Ministry ages PreK through 5th Grade will have a fun day at the lake for parents and their child/children.  This will be a great time for moms and dads to spend dedicated time having fun together with their children.  This is a great opportunity for bonding time, playing games, coloring Easter eggs, fishing, swimming or wading the beach and food - hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, chips, drinks, etc..
