A WELCOME FROM PASTOR GARY SCHNEIDER
Thank you for visiting the First Baptist Church of La Plata website.
We are a friendly, Bible-believing church that exists to help people find and grow in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We teach an old message: salvation by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone (Ephesians 2:8), and we enjoy singing the old hymns of the faith.
Not all is old at First Baptist Church, however. We believe that when God saves an individual, that person becomes a new creature (II Corinthians 5:17); we believe that God's mercies are new each day (Lamentations 3:22-23), and we enjoy singing God's praise in new songs (Psalm 96:1) as well as the old.
We are a mission-minded church voluntarily cooperating with the Southern Baptist Convention literally extending our ministry to the utter most parts of the world (Acts 1:8).
We have two Sunday morning worship services and one Sunday evening service. We also have a mid-week service on Wednesday nights. The emphasis of each service is on the worship of God, prayer, and the preaching of the Scriptures which we believe to be the infallible, inerrant Word of God.
As a family church, we have many activities designed for every age group from small children to senior adults. Our Bible Study, or Sunday School, classes are age-graded to meet the needs of the entire family.
We welcome all who sincerely desire to seek the Lord in worship to join us as we proclaim the Gospel to our community, state, nation, and world. If you are searching for a church home and a place to serve the Lord, come worship with us!
First Baptist Church is located in the county seat of Charles County, Maryland. To reach the church, simply turn off of Highway 301 onto Hawthorne Road (Route 225). We are located one-half mile from 301 on the right.
