Who We Are

Choosing a Church Home

Finding a church is as easy as checking the yellow pages. But finding a church home, where you feel part of a real family is a little more difficult.

At First Baptist Church, we believe that being a part of a close, caring church family is one of the most important decisions you can make for yourself and your family. After all, church is where you'll be learning, growing, and building caring personal relationships for a lifetime.

Meet our Family

We're a fellowship of Christians who love the Lord Jesus Christ and are working to do His will where we live, work, and play. Through worship and praise, reaching and preaching, music and activities and community service, we want to reach others for Jesus Christ while encouraging and supporting one another.

Small Enough to Know you... Large Enough to Serve you

Whether you're a youth looking for answers, a single parent wanting support, a young couple starting a family or a senior looking for new friends, First Baptist Church of Delaware has ministry programs to help meet your needs.

What First Baptist Church Can Offer You:


A Sunday morning worship service with sermons that speak to both heart and mind, a children's moment, nursery, monthly communion service and uplifting celebration with special music at Christmas, Easter, and other holidays, including a Christmas Eve candlelight service and a candlelight communion service on the Thursday before Easter.


Sunday School classes for every age, including adult classes. Additionally we offer special study opportunities throughout the year.
