About Us

New to First Baptist Church Statesboro? 

Why Church Membership? On a regular basis, you will hear me ask people to make the commitment of church membership. More than just being a regular attendee, a person who commits to church membership says he wants to be cared for and counted on.” Church membership creates a sense of accountability and community where believers can grow in their faith together.

Our beliefs are summarized in the publication, Baptist Faith and Message. Click the button below for more information.

First Baptist Church Statesboro was founded by a group of seven individuals who wanted to make a difference for Jesus Christ in this community. Today, we continue in that same spirit. Led by Pastor John Waters and supported by a dedicated staff committed to serving our congregation and community with love and excellence.
