First Baptist Church Florence exists to help you connect on a personal level with God through Jesus Christ. We believe that God has a plan and purpose for your life. We know that when your life comes into contact with God’s purpose, life change occurs.
First Baptist Church Florence nurtures in-home small groups that reflect on God’s word as a community of believers. Our small groups encourage the creation of disciples and fosters accountability among fellow Christians. The fellowship enjoyed in the weekly gatherings helps deepen existing relationships and grow new ones.
First Baptist Church Florence is dedicated to following Christ with our whole hearts and making Him known. We are a diverse group of believers that come from many walks of life. Every person has their own journey and we believe that journey must include Jesus Christ. It is our goal to see revitalization in the lives of individuals, the church and the community.

Senior Pastor Wes Willie came on the field at FBC Florence September 18 of 2016. He has served in the ministry for 15 years as youth pastor, music minister and senior pastor.
Wes and Amanda have been married since December 2001, they have boy/girl twins named Sam and Sadie who are 16.
Wes believes to quote the Apostle Paul that, “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the very worst.” 1 Timothy 1:15. As we minister to the lost world it is important to never forget that we also were once just as lost and if not for the saving grace of Jesus Christ, we would still be headed for hell. Jesus Christ is the one true God and the word in which God revealed Himself is perfect and inerrant. He feels his calling is to see those lost become saved and to see those saved grow in the Lord.
Youth Pastor Matthew Fox made an immediate impact with his arrival at First Baptist Church His ability to connect with the younger segment of The Church is laying the groundwork for the continued growth of God’s kingdom.
Matthew heard his calling when he was 15 and has since dedicated all of his life to the path God chose for him. He is a graduate from Baptist Bible College and has a bachelors degree in Pastoral Studies and Biblical science He has been in ministry since 2016.
Matthew and his bride of 2 years, Amanda, moved their family from Decatur, TX to join FBC last December when he became our Student Director at FBC Florence.
