Welcome to First Baptist Church Port Tampa
We understand visiting a new church can sometimes be overwhelming. We want to set your heart and mind at ease and encourage you to experience the presence and love of God in our service. Below is what you can expect to experience during your visit.
What to Expect

We have a great breakfast and fellowship, before settling into the Sunday School.
If you would like to attend Sunday School classes we offer, class starts every Sunday morning at 9:45am. For more information on these classes and where they are located please contact Carolyn Johnson (813)839-2946 prior to coming.
We have classes for the adult Bible Study. Each quarter we change studies. These classes provide the opportunity for you to meet new people and to nurture authentic friendships with people who are seeking fellowship and growth just like you.
On Sunday morning first time visitors are requested to identify themselves at the start of service by raising their hand. Your not required to speak or give your name. We just want to make you welcome by giving you a small gift bag and a visitor card to fill out.
Nursery and Children’s Church
We have a Nursery and Children’s Church if you have a children with you. They are not required to attend either of them but it does give the kids church related activities to do while the adult service is running. For both of these services you can contact Carolyn Johnson for more details (813)839-2946.
Come as you are. We are more concerned about meeting your needs than what you wear. You will find men in jeans, suits and polo shirts. You can dress up or down; Ladies will wear a dress, pant suits, or jeans. What matters is that you come willing to learn from God’s Word and ready to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
