Services

Sunday Worship 9:00 & 10:30AMIn-person & Online

We are a church that is called to reach all people with the Gospel of Christ by partnering with ministries in Madison County, our nation, and around the world. As a church, we seek to equip and send people of all ages to participate in God’s call to make disciples. Our desire is to put God first in the heart of Madison and to make Him known throughout the world.


Due to the COVID-19 virus, we hope to resume mission travel in 2021. We will update as we know more. Please continue to be the hands and feet of Christ to those around you.


It’s the vision of our church and pastor to partner with Hispaniola Mountain Ministries to reach the people of Polo, Dominican Republic. This is a village of nearly 10,000 people. Throughout the year, First Baptist Madison will send mission teams to this community to share the love of Christ. Each mission journey will be diverse and can include mission opportunities in the following areas: Medical, Evangelism, Men’s Sports, Construction, Children VBS, Vision Clinics, Discipleship, Leader Training, and Christmas Meals. We will work with the local church, walk through villages, and share the Good News of Christ in Polo. We are very excited about this partnership and ongoing ministry. Join us in reaching the people of Polo with the love of Christ.


Church Building Project
Goal: $60,000
Rain pelted down on the roof of the small Baptist Church of Polo. It was hard to find a dry spot inside the church, as various leaks found their way from the ceiling to the old green cushions; but the rain did not stop the natives from entering and gathering to hear the Word of the Lord. Currently the building is small and there is not enough room for all the people to have a place to come and participate in worship and teaching. A new building will provide a much larger area, storage space, and rooms for the children to have classes. The land is available for purchase and a construction date is on the calendar.  The church is not comprised of brick and mortar; the church consists of individuals who have placed their faith and trust in Jesus. He is the cornerstone, the foundation. A building provides a place for the family of God to come together, fellowship, and minister to one another.

Mission Groups

Carlisle Group 
The Carlisle Group is named for previous FBC Madison church members who went out and served as missionaries. This group usually meets in the morning on the fourth Thursday of each month at different locations. The focus of this group is to serve the community through local missions. Some of these mission opportunities include: visits to nursing homes and ICU waiting rooms, Bingo at The Bond House, Dinner with the ladies at Crossroads, and other service opportunities at MadCAAP and Our Daily Bread.

Hall Group
The Hall Group meets the second Monday of each month at 6:30pm in the FBCM Community Room. Monthly projects have included the Home Place, Ronald McDonald House, MadCAAP, The Mustard Seed, Cross Roads Ministry, and Baptist Hospital waiting rooms.

Praying Hearts
Prayer is the focus of this group which meets the second Thursday of each month at 9:30am in homes. They use the suggested monthly guide on prayer from the Mission Mosaic. Along with praying for our IMB and NAMB missionaries, they are careful to remember all those from our church who are doing missions at home and abroad.

Disaster Relief Ministry 

FBC Madison partners with the Mississippi Baptist Convention to send disaster relief teams after environmental disasters. By serving communities who have experienced hardship, our Disaster Relief Ministry has a wonderful opportunity to love and share the Gospel with people who need hope.


Helping Hands Ministry 

Helping Hands Ministry is focused on meeting the needs of those in our church and in our community. This ministry often deals with individuals and addresses their specific needs. Helping Hands Ministry provides opportunities to serve those in need and ultimately share the Gospel with them.

Church Plants

Highland Colony Baptist Church was planted by a small group of FBC Madison members in 1994. This group was called in December of 1993 and began meeting in January of 1994 in St. Andrews School. At the end of 1994, plans for a permanent location were put in place, and one year later, the church met in their new building. Throughout the years, Highland Colony Baptist Church has grown, and they continue in their effort to fulfill the Great Commission by growing in faith and making disciples.


Redemption Church 

In 2017, God worked in the hearts of leaders at FBC Madison and set them in the direction of planting another church. This church plant would reach into areas of population growth in Madison County that were not being engaged by FBC Madison. By God’s sovereignty, Steve and Kristen Gee were called by God to move themselves and their three children from Vancouver to lead this church plant. Redemption Church began meeting in January of 2020, and the church grows as they receive Biblical teaching and seek to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
