 If everything above sounds great, here’s some information about First Baptist Huntsville and our great city... 

 We’re two hundred ten years old on paper, but we hardly act our age. In a city that is often referred to as the “Rocket City,” there’s no doubt this town is booming with fun and exciting things. FBC is a downtown church that seeks to be "Church at the Heart of the City" through our 5-point vision: neighborhood focus, relational discipleship, radical hospitality, connection with young adults, and enthusiasm for fresh expressions of church. We are a church dually-aligned with SBC & CBF...often referring to ourselves as centrist Baptists. Our town is growing and our church is on the cusp of a kids’ "sweet” renovation.
