First Baptist Church of Goliad
" Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength. The second is this: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no commandment greater than these.” - Mark 12:30-31
We are glad you have taken the time to see what opportunities await you here at First Baptist church of Goliad. We hope you will plan to attend our Sunday Morning Bible Studies and Morning Worship Service. Our prayer is that you will encounter the love and mercy of God in our midst, according to Jesus' own promise that where two or more of His disciples are gathered, there is He among them.
At FBC Goliad we have many different areas in which you and/or the family can get involved. For the younger kids we have Children's Church and AWANA's. For your teenagers we have Youth Group, Teen Girls Bible Study and Youth centered Sunday School. For the Adults we offer a wide variety of Sunday School classes to meet your needs and comfort levels, as well as Bible studies for Men, Women, & Couples during the week.
As you explore our website you will find the different ministries offered as well as information about our sister congregation that meets here- Crossroads Deaf Fellowship. The Crossroads Deaf Fellowship is made up believers from the Deaf Community in the surrounding area (Goliad, Victoria, Refugio, Cuero, Port Lavaca, Beeville and as far away as Uvalde).
Under the Resources tab you will find our media links as well as information regarding church membership and a way to submit a prayer request. Once again, welcome and God bless!

All Activities Have Returned! Check the Schedule for Weekly Activities.
Dear Church Family,
We are excited to see many of you returning to Sunday Morning Worship Service. With Covid19 numbers extremely low in Goliad County and increased worship attendance over the past few weeks the Deacons, Staff and I have decided to take down the blue tape and reopen all pews for seating. However we want to keep the chance for spreading illness low. To do this we ask you to help us with the following steps:
1) If you are running a fever or have symptoms of a cold, please stay home and watch online. The same goes for those with weakened immune systems. Better safe than sorry!
2) In the sanctuary try not to sit directly behind nor in front of another who is already seated. We strongly recommend that you wear a mask, especially while singing. We will refrain from handshakes and passing the offering plates as well.
3) We will have a Live Feed in the Fellowship Hall (Fellowship of Believers' Sunday School classroom) for those who want to worship but may not want to be in close quarters with a large crowd.
Hand sanitizer and face masks continue to be available at every sanctuary entrance. The AC system runs continuously and introduces a flow of fresh air into the room so that there should be no pockets of stagnant air to harbor infection.
So let's all do our part, and pray for God to protect us as we gather to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Because of Jesus,
Jay Fleming, Pastor
