First Baptist Church of Chattanooga, TN


At First Baptist Church we have a place for you.

Everyone needs a place. A place to worship God with heart and mind; a place to give and receive compassion; a place to learn about life; a place to make a difference; a place to fit in and belong.

We invite you to such a place…in the heart of Chattanooga.. a place to connect with God as we share His love with the world.
