First Baptist Church has been ministering in our community for over 75 years. Established in 1944, our church is committed to the preaching of God's Word, the proclamation of the Gospel of Christ, corporate worship, and the equipping of the people to grow and share their faith.
Our church is located on Highway 23 in Belle Chasse, LA, just past the local high school and post office, and just 1.9 miles north of the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base of New Orleans. Our congregants are eager to welcome new visitors and help you to feel at home whether you are here for just one Sunday or many.

The Book of Hebrews
On April 18, 2021, we began a journey through the book of Hebrews. The decision to explore this particular book of the Bible came from a desire to explore a Christological book of the Bible after our previous study of Ecclesiastes. As I have previously stated, a walk through Hebrews will last for most of remainder of the year 2021. This is due to the dense theological application of this book.
Adrio König wrote that Hebrews is one of the most neglected books of the Bible because of its ambiguity. We do not know who wrote it, when it was written, or who it was written to. In fact, many theologians and historians have argued the canonicity of the book of Hebrews, such as Martin Luther. Despite these disputes over the text, Hebrews remains a part of the biblical canon because of its abundant theological characteristics.
The book of Hebrews features four major themes that appear throughout the book. As we study through Hebrews one passage at a time over the next months, you will notice that these themes will appear over and again. These four themes are the greatness of Christ, the reliability of God’s word, warnings against apostasy, and calls to persevere.... Continue reading.
Worship with us.
One way to worship with us is to attend a worship service on Sunday mornings. In accordance with state and parish ordinances regarding COVID-19 preparedness, we are holding worship services in our sanctuary on Sunday mornings at 10:30. We ask that attendees practice good hand hygiene, maintain social distancing, and wear masks in moments of transition (coming and going).
To view our video library of past worship services, visit our Watch page. Or, you can listen to past sermons in a podcast format by visiting our Listen page.
Another way to worship with us is to join a small group. Although groups are currently limited due to COVID-19 restrictions, we do have a number of classes meeting on Sunday mornings at 9:30. If you would like to be contacted with more information about small groups, please fill out a Connect form and someone will contact you.
Worship through service.
The most effective means of growing in your relationship with Christ and with the church is to serve. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, our areas of service are somewhat limited, but we do have needs in our nursery, children's ministry, worship team, and production team. If you would like to volunteer in any of these or other areas in our church, please fill out a Serve form and we will contact you.
Worship at home.
The most effective and lasting faith training happens at home. We want to encourage you to worship with your family and study God's word in your home. Joining us for a worship service is wonderful, but worship is a lifestyle. We want to encourage you to invite the Holy Spirit into your home and worship outside of the church as well as inside.
Worship services will be live-streamed via Facebook Live at 10:30Am on Sundays, and will appear on our YouTube Channel within 24 hours after the service ends.
Worship through giving.
To keep our church financially healthy and able to do ministry, we need the financial support of our members and of those who feel led to give. Please use our online giving system to give your tithes and offerings so that the ministry of First Baptist Church of Belle Chasse may continue today and in the future.
Our church has been very blessed over the past year. Even in the face of a global pandemic, our church has been financially stable and able to continue serving our community through 2020 and into 2021.
We have a some ambitious plans for ministry in 2021, and those ambitions require your financial support. So this year, we are asking for +21 in 2021. Whether that means 21 cents or 21 dollars, we are challenging ourselves to increase our giving in 2021.
