Gather + serve + Share

Share your time and talents with each other if you want to experience all that God has to offer through His church.

LIfe Groups

Life Groups are our primary strategy to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. It is in these groups that meaningful relationships are developed, spiritual growth is deepened, and opportunities to serve are discovered.


It is our focus as a church to equip and encourage people to live the gospel, learn the Word, love the church, and lead through discipleship. It is the mission of each of our Life Groups to accomplish this very purpose. Though reaching, teaching, ministering, and leading Life Groups are developing fully devoted followers of Jesus.


Thank you for taking the time to learn about our Life Group Ministry, and we encourage you to come check out a Life Group that is right for you. We will do everything we can to help you become all God desires for you. 


Most Life Groups meet at 9:30am on Sunday mornings downtown. 

We also offer groups that gather at different times throughout the week in people's homes. Email Lowell Lucas at lowelll@firstbaptist.org if you have questions or need more information.

Serve & Volunteer

We understand that real life finds its fullest expression when we LOVE others through volunteering our time to serve. Serving at First Baptist Daytona takes place both inside and outside the walls of the church. God has gifted you, it's our aim to match that gift with dynamic opportunities for living your life on purpose. We want to put you in a place of service that lines up with your passions and talents. 


We encourage you to understand what your gifts and abilities are before jumping into a volunteer position. Not everyone is called to serve in one area, but we are all called to serve. Contact us and let us know how you would like to serve and we will put you in touch with the right people to get involved right away. 


Some training or background checks may be required before full involvement based on the area of service.

Discover First is the best place to get to know us while we get to know you. It is a snapshot of First Baptist and the step to take toward church membership.

If you attend our Tomoka Farms location, we offer it ever third Sunday immediately following the worship service. 


At Discover First you will meet new people, hear more about our passion and direction, and learn how to connect with others. No reservations are required, and as with all of our regular activities, free childcare is provided.
