The First Baptist Church of Dowling Park is a growing rural community church near the banks of the Suwannee River in beautiful Suwannee County. We are a body of believers committed to worshipping and serving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We believe in the Trinity and that the Bible is the inspired word of God as given to men under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. As a Baptist Church and member of the Southern Baptist Convention, we join with likeminded Christians in spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the world. The church was established in 1988 and has grown into a congregation that is 'on fire' for the Lord and committed to doing His will. Our slogan; 'Sharing the Joy of Jesus' is more than just a catchy phrase. We hope that it gives you insight into just who we are. It is our responsibility as Christ's Church to be His ambassadors and spokespersons for the world. Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and at our church we desire to do the same. We are not restricted by denominational barriers, but strive to ensure that all who come to our church grow in their walk with Christ. That is why you will discover here ministries geared to various life stages and needs. That is why we have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities.
We want you to be a part of the blessings of God in the life of our church. We will bring you updates often on just what is happening at our church and share the stories of how Christ is making a difference in the lives of people.
