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!
