Find out more about the church

First Baptist Church has a rich history, but is also a forward looking, ministry-oriented congregation.

Founded in 1859, First Baptist gives believers an opportunity to be a part of a story that began almost 150 years ago, and will continue for lifetimes to come.

With a strong Baptist heritage, First Baptist challenges each member to exercise his/her gifts for the glory of God. Distinctively Christian, centered on the Bible, First Baptist proclaims the reign of God in the Muncie community.

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Where can I park?

There is plenty of parking on all sides of the church. The largest parking lot is on the east side of the church.

2. What do I wear?

The short answer is anything you would like. There are some who feel most comfortable in their “Sunday best”. You will see some in ties and dresses (not usually both at the same time) There are others in jeans. By in large, those in the early service usually dress a bit more formal, while those in the late service are more casual. We believe that you should dress as you feel comfortable and in a way that facilitates your worship.

3. Who is preaching this weekend?

On most weekends our pastor, Wade Allen preaches. We sometimes have a guest speaker.

  1. What time are the worship gatherings?
