Through the Bible...One Step at a Time

Sunday Evening Service

Join us Sunday Nights at 6 PM to study through the Bible from cover to cover. We read every word and consider every paragraph with an eye toward understanding why the Holy Spirit chose to include it in the canon. We aim to grasp the fullness of the Word of God and to know the fullness of God's counsel.


There is no service on the third Sundays of the month due to the monthly church luncheon.

It's 4 U Mom (Every 4th Tuesday)

It's 4 U Mom is our women's ministry. It is our desire to minister to women from all walks of life. Not just moms or those moms currently raising children, but all women. We meet once a month September through April to fellowship, encourage and grow spiritually by supporting each other's needs. We enjoy a speaker each month, a meal together, crafts and games.


Free child care is always provided. So there is no reason a mom can't join us. The children are also being taught biblical principles!

First Baptist Church in Roxana

Who We Are

First Baptist Church in Roxana was organized on September 28, 1921 as an outgrowth of a community-wide Sunday School, and called its first pastor in December 1921. For almost 100 years, the saints have been gathering in this place to worship the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 


We seek to serve the saints in Roxana, Woodriver, Alton, and the surrounding area. First Baptist Church in Roxana is committed to the exposition of the Bible every week. It is through this ministry of exposition by the elders that the saints are equipped and edified to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ for the purpose of uniting together in the fellowship of the gospel and taking the message to the lost.​ 


First Baptist Church in Roxana welcomes all people to worship God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ in the Spirit.
