Welcome to First Baptist Church of Crystal River, Florida

We welcome everyone to our church and fellowship. If you are looking for a loving, caring and Bible preaching church, come and visit us at First Baptist. Our doors are always open. If you have special needs or need someone to pray with you, feel free to call our church office.

The ABC's of Becoming A Christian

  • Admit that you have sinned, that you have broken God’s Law.
  • Believe that Jesus Christ died for every wrong thing you’ve ever done. Believe that He was buried and rose again on the third day.
  • Confess to Jesus that you want Him to forgive you and lead your life.

Are you ready to receive Jesus into your life? Say this prayer, “God, I admit that I have sinned against you. I believe that Jesus died for me and rose again. The best way I know how, I receive Jesus into my life to lead me and save me. Amen.”

Please contact one of our staff so that we may pray with you and help you understand what it means to becoming a Christian.

A Note From Our Pastor

The month of May is marked by transition. Students are completing one grade and making a transition into the next grade or into a new school. Graduates are saying “good-bye” to their place of learning and making a transition into the next phase of their life. Perhaps you are making a transition into a new job, a new relationship, a new location, a new level of health, or a new season of life.

“Transition” is an appropriate word to describe life at First Baptist Church of Crystal River. Several of our long-time church members have either gone home to be with the Lord or have moved away to another state. We have had to say “good-bye” to several people who have made a new transition in life or a transition into the next life. It is always difficult to say “good-bye” to people who have blessed our lives and served the Lord so faithfully.

Have you noticed all the new faces around our church in recent days? God has blessed us with new families and faces in both worship services. It is wonderful to make new friends and meet new people. In recent months, we have had the privilege of welcom-ing new guests, new members, new Bible Study classmates and new volunteers in various ministries. God is doing a “new thing” at our church and we have the opportunity to join Him in this new adventure.

 How can we make the most of this transition time? Here are a few ideas. (1) Make a new friend. Introduce yourself to a new face. Be friendly. (2) Join a Bible Study at 9:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings. It’s a great way to learn the Bible and make friends at the same time! (3) Join a ministry. Many of our existing ministries are looking for new people. Have you considered using your talents in children’s ministry, the nursery, the choir, or the greeting team? Call the church office and let us know how we can put you to work for God! (4) Pray. Ask God to use this transition time to launch us forward into a blessed future. New possibili-ties await us just around the corner.
