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.

Barbra Streisand is reported as saying, “I do believe the world is coming to an end. I just feel that science, technology, and the mind have surpassed the soul — the heart. There is no balance in terms of feeling and love for fellow man.” Ms. Streisand is not necessarily a prophet, but she is perceptive enough to discern that all is not well on this troubled planet. When we look around and see the unraveling of Europe, the growing tensions in the Middle East, the downward spiral of the family and the American culture, it is enough to ask what the great British statesman, Winston Churchill, asked Billy Graham some 50 years ago, “Young man, can you give me any hope?” I think if it were not for the coming of Jesus Christ, the fulfilment of His purpose to die on a Roman cross for the sins of a fallen human race, and to be raised the third day, and the assurance He will return and turn the world upside right — we would all feel like both Streisand and Churchill.
But I do not feel like them. This Christmas we celebrate the birth of eternal hope — in Jesus Christ! We are engaging every part of our worship experiences to remind ourselves and our friends — there is hope!
The mountains will be alive with the sounds of Christmas music. The preaching will explore the impact of Jesus coming to planet earth. The worship will focus on the message of hope. This Christmas season will guide us in joining the world of believers to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
As an alternative to Halloween, our church is planning a “Block Party” from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm on October 31. Our new family pastor, Jonathan Phillips, is leading the Block Party. We look forward to Christian fellowship, fun & games, and of course treats and candy.
The Bible says that whatever we do, we should do all “to the glory of God!” That is our goal here at First Baptist Church of Cape Coral. Hopefully, we will see lots of friends and neighbors as we have our first “Block Party” here at 4117 Coronado Parkway in Cape Coral, FL.
We are praying for those in the wake of Hurricane Harvey, particularly our friends & neighbors in Texas and Louisiana. At times like this, it is good to be a part of something bigger than ourselves. Our mission dollars are already at work through such agencies as the Southern Baptist Convention, which we support on a regular basis.
The SBC Disaster Relief trucks were the very first ones in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. The FEMA director this week named the SBC as among the first-responders already on the ground in Texas.
So, already we have given, and we can now also give more. Anything given through First Baptist Church of Cape Coral should be designated “Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief,” and we will forward it to the appropriate SBC relief coordinators. Our local Royal Palm Baptist Association and our statewide Florida Baptist Convention are currently organizing relief teams to go to Texas to help. We can direct to them anyone who is available to help.
