First Baptist Church Vicksburg has a passion for its community and a desire to reach those in it. God calls us to go into all the world. We believe He has gifted us for such a time as this to use our gifts and resources to extend His kingdom and reach those around us for the Lord Jesus Christ.



Each week, our pastoral team brings powerful messages that inspire us to “Love God, Love People, and Live the Gospel.”

Our family joined First Baptist Church Vicksburg in 2018. We saw that First Baptist Church Vicksburg was a Bible-teaching, Gospel-driven, and welcoming church. With young children we wanted a place where our children would be loved on and taught the word of God. We’ve found all of these qualities and much more in First Baptist Church Vicksburg.

We feel like a part of a big family whenever we step foot on campus. Whether it’s a Sunday or Wednesday night, we love being there to learn, grow, and fellowship. Everyone is friendly and has a smile on their face to greet you. Even though we are new to Vicksburg, it feels like home because of our church family.

When our family moved to Vicksburg in 1974, we looked for a Bible-teaching, mission-minded church. We found that at First Baptist Church Vicksburg. It was a place for us to grow in Bible understanding as Christians and to learn to be servants through the many ministry opportunities that were made available. Forty-five years later, First Baptist is still “that church.” Our children now have families of their own and exhibit Christian values, many of which they learned through First Baptist.

Working through the medical/dental clinic that our church sponsors once a month enables us to share our faith through our work there as counselors. What a wonderful opportunity to show the love of Christ with many in our community! The warm, welcoming fellowship of First Baptist attracted us many years ago, and we are happy to say that same spirit still remains today.


Since moving to Vicksburg in 1981, Winky and I have been so blessed to be a part of the family of faith at First Baptist Church Vicksburg. We raised our two daughters in this church, surrounded by a host of strong, loving Christians who guided them, encouraged them, and poured the love of our Savior Jesus Christ into both of them. We have discovered first hand that our fellow believers at First Baptist understand the importance of celebrating with one another during the good times and being lovingly supportive during the hard times.

Winky is actively involved in the church’s Medical Dental Ministry, volunteers to cook for the Joy Fellowship Group, is a part of the Mississippi Baptist Convention’s Disaster Relief, and is presently serving as Chairman of the Deacons at FBCV. I currently teach 5 Year Old Preschool Choir and enjoy teaching high school coed Sunday School.

If you and your family are looking for a church home, we would be so honored to welcome you to our family of faith at FBCV where God’s Word is preached, His Presence is experienced, and His Gospel is spread.



We would love the opportunity to worship with you. Join us for our next upcoming service or class.
