Welcome to First Baptist!

Our vision reaches from Cape Coral around the world. Our goal is to fulfill Col. 1:28 in seeing every member of the family built up toward spiritual maturity.

Our focus is outward — trying to make a difference here in Cape Coral, the surrounding community, and throughout the world. We believe in serving others, and we believe in a global proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Super Sunday

The Super Bowl has become kind of an iconic event in American culture. It seems like the entire world pauses to watch a football game. It is certainly an exciting event.

For our Super Bowl weekend we are joining in the national festivities here at First Baptist Cape Coral. I am inviting everyone to wear football clothes — a sweather, shirt, jacket, etc., from their favorite team. I will be sharing the Christian testimony of Carolina Panthers’ running back Jonathan Stewart in my message from the life of Elijah. After our Saturday evening service we will have a “finger food” fellowship in the main lobby. And after our Sunday morning service we will have our annual “Chili CookOff” outside under the pavilion.

We look forward to football, food & fun. But above all we look forward to focusing on the Gospel of Jesus Christ!

Here Comes 2016!

Unbelievable — the year 2016 is here! Wow, how time flies!

We thank God for what He is doing here at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral. We look forward to a new year — to see what He will do in us and through us in the year 2016.

Statistics do not necessarily define a ministry, but it is still good to see our church increase in 2015 in all measurable categories. Our weekly worship attendance increased by 10% in 2015 — the third straight year we have had a 10%-plus increase. That is very unusual. We all talk about church growth, but to see double-digit growth for three consecutive years is not something to be taken for granted! We thank the Lord and give Him the glory!

We do not have our giving statistics for 2015 finalized yet. However, it is always good to compare a month with the same month of the previous year. That way we get an accurate seasonal comparison. Our giving for the month of December 2015 was up by 45% over December of 2014. Incredible! Our General Fund giving was up by 21%, and our “Carry the Light” Building Fund giving was up by an unbelievable 64% over December of one year ago! Again, we thank the Lord! He is blessing First Baptist Cape Coral through the faithfulness of His people.

We successfully launched Faith Promise missions giving in 2015. And best of all were the number of people who came to faith in Christ through the witness and outreach of our church in 2015. To God be the glory!

Our Christmas Pageant

We are approaching 1,000 tickets for our Christmas pageant — to be presented by Word of Life at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral this coming Monday, December 7, at 7:00 PM. It is entitled, “Magi,” a biblical word which describes the Wise Men. And yes, we still have room — our sanctuary will seat 1,500.  But it is important that you order a ticket online — here on our website — in advance.  The tickets are free. We look forward to a Christmas worship experience!
