First Baptist Church has been an integral part of the Carl Junction and greater Joplin community for almost 140 years. Our mission is to meet people where faith and life meet with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We would love for you to join us for worship as we lift high the name of Jesus and try to reach out to our community. We strive to be a "Family @ First."
