We are a body of believers committed to worshiping and serving Jesus Christ. As a Church, we join with like minded Christians in spreading the gospel around the world. We believe we are called to be disciples to make a difference. Every piece of our ministry strives for us to make disciples to make a difference. (See Matthew 28:19-20)

Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and at FBC Newalla we desire to do the same. That’s why you’ll discover our ministries are geared to various life stages and needs. We have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities. If you are interested in sharing God’s love at First Baptist, learn about our history, our beliefs and how to join us in ministry.

Our History
On December 15, 1943, the Immanuel Baptist Church of Oklahoma City began services and a mission with Rev. Hollis Morris as the mission pastor. Rev. Morris was then a student at Oklahoma Baptist University, and later attended Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. On May 5, 1946, the First Baptist Church of Newalla was formally organized with Rev. Morris as the first pastor. The First Baptist Church of Newalla has been used of God to touch hundreds of lives throughout the years, and continues to be a growing witness for Jesus Christ in the community and around the world.
In more recent years, the Lord has continued to add new members and new families to His body. We believe He always does this for His own glory, for the upbuilding of the church, and for the good of those He hopes to reach through us.
What will the coming years bring? Only God knows, but we invite you to join with us as we follow His leading and serve Him with our whole hearts!
Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is the Spirit of God, fully divine. He exalts Christ. He convicts men of sin, of righteousness, and of judgment. He enlightens and empowers the believer and the church in worship, evangelism and service.
Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

The Church
A New Testament church of the Lord Jesus Christ is an autonomous local congregation of baptized believers, associated by covenant in the faith and fellowship of the gospel and seeking to extend the gospel to the ends of the earth. The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.
Baptism & the Lord’s Supper
Christian baptism is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in a crucified, buried, and risen Savior, the believer’s death to sin, the burial of the old life, and the resurrection to walk in newness of life in Christ Jesus.
The Lord’s Supper is a symbolic act of obedience whereby members memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.
How to join FBC Newalla . . .
Do you feel God urging to join our fellowship? Great! Simply come to the front of the auditorium during the invitation at the close of the service. You may join the church in one of the following ways:

By Baptism
It may be that you now accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior for the first time. That’s wonderful! Please come during the invitation to make your decision public. Let us share in your joy and talk with you about it. You may follow the Lord’s command and join this church by being baptized by the pastor into our fellowship.

It may be that you have placed your faith in Christ sometime in the past and have been a member of another denomination. If God is now leading you to join this church you may do so by reaffirming your faith in Christ and being baptized into our fellowship.

By Letter
You may have already personally accepted Christ and are a member of another Baptist church. If you now feel led to join this church, please come during the invitation and join us by letter. We will simply write to your former church, and they will send us your letter of membership.

By Statement
If you are a member of another Baptist Church but for some reason your letter of membership is not available from that church, we gladly invite you to join on your statement of having been baptized in another Baptist church.

If you are still uncertain about your situation or about God’s will, please let us talk with you. You may either come during the invitation or arrange for a special meeting with the pastor. We want to help you.
