About Us

First Baptist Church of Athens thrives as a powerful, beautiful, charismatic and intergenerational community of believers who take action in building up one another in Christ and equipping one another for ministry and mission with ourselves and our neighbors. We are affiliated with the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

This summer, from June 1-5, FBC youth will be travelling to Marianna, FL to serve communities hit hard by last year’s Hurricane Michael. They will team up with other Cooperative Baptist congregations from around Georgia to help make a difference.  All participants and/or parents if under the age of 18 must fill out this form and submit it to Minister of Students, Emily Harbin before departure.
