First Baptist Church is committed
to seeing Christ at work in our world.

Our vision for the First Baptist Church Family is to create a place for you to…

BELONG-We are built for relationships.  The church is not a building, it’s people joining together in positive relationships centered around Christ.
CELEBRATE-Because Christ has welcomed us, we have a reason to celebrate.  We celebrate by worshipping together, living for Christ, and loving others in His name.
DISCOVER-God designed us for more than just physical growth; He created us to grow spiritually and intellectually as well. This happens when we discover who He is and who we are in Him.
ENGAGE-Because of who God is and who we are in Him, we desire to let our faith and relationship with Him lead us into the world in order to share the hope and love of Christ.

The Sequatchie County Learning Center is a tutoring program in which volunteers invests in the education of our children.


We support the Sequatchie County Food Bank in its attempt to fight hunger. Currently, the food bank serves 10% of the county each month.

Throughout the year, we  serve our community by providing free laundry services at our local laundromat.  From quarters to detergent, everything is provided including dinner.


We serve as a Relay Center for Operation Christmas Child.  This means we ensure that the boxes continue the next steps toward reaching children across the world.
Give a Kid a Chance is a ministry FBC Dunlap partners with to provide school supplies for local students.
Every Thanksgiving we work with our community to ensure that everyone has a meal to celebrate. In 2014, we fed more than 800 of our neighbors.
We support our local Women’s Care Center in their efforts to equip and educate families.  
We are always on the lookout to serve the world.  Here are a few ministries we have partnered with in the past:
Elevate2 with circle
Elevate Student Ministries is designed to equip students with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything that we do is central to the gospel (Romans 1:16).  We equip our students through ENGAGING Bible-studies, INTENTIONAL discipleship, RELATIONAL service, and CHRIST-CENTERED worship. Partnering these principles with activities such as lock-ins and trips and also loving the students, we can accomplish our goal of equipping them with the gospel.
