First Baptist Church

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Winfield

Dear friends, let us love one another, for love comes from God.  Everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. ( I John 4:7 )

Welcome to the home page of First Baptist Church. We would love to have you join us for one of our Sunday or Mid-Week services. Our hope is that this site will help acquaint you with some of our programs and help you learn more about our ministries.

Be a Part of a Great Easter Sunday at First Baptist!

Dr. Paul T. Murphy

Jn. 11:25. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: Jesus lives, and because He lives – I can live!

No one is truly ready to live until he is spiritually ready to die.


Time for Church Directory Photos!Dear Families and Friends,

We need YOU to make our directory complete! To celebrate our church family and strengthen the bond within our congregation, we welcome you to be a part of our upcoming new directory.

A new directory:

  • Preserves this special time in the life our church
  • Becomes  a lasting record of our current membership
  • Helps us connect faces with names

We are partnering with Lifetouch for this important project. Lifetouch is providing the directory at no cost to our church. Every family photographed receives a complimentary 8x10 portrait and directory. You can schedule your appointment after church services each Sunday & Wednesday OR register online here beginning this week.


  • Wednesday, May 2 - 2:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
  • Thursday, May 3 - 2:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.
  • Friday, May 4 - 2:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m.

For your convenience, all photography and portrait viewing will take place at our church with NO sitting fee. You will have a variety of poses taken. One pose will be selected for the directory. In addition to your complimentary 8x10, you will have the opportunity to purchase additional portraits on the day of your portrait session. Lifetouch’s portrait price lists are available at the sign up table for those who would like them prior to photography. Be sure to take advantage of the opportunity to be professionally photographed. We are looking forward to seeing you in our directory. I am encouraging 100% participation!
