Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Laurel Indiana's website. We are located in the beautiful Whitewater Valley of Southeastern Indiana. We are an old fashion independent, fundamental, Baptist church. We still preach the old King James Bible and sing the old hymns of the faith.

We have no part in the modern charismatic movement nor do we support the popular contemporary music movement that is infiltrating independent, fundamental Baptist churches across our land.

We believe in old fashion Bible standards and convictions. We also believe in having a love and compassion for sinners while maintaining a godly hatred for sin. 

We have tried to make this site as simple and as user-friendly as possible. Please take some time and look around on our website. If you are looking for a church that does not compromise with the world, but does have a burden for reaching the world, we invite you to come out and worship with us when you are in our area.

Please feel free to browse our website and take advantage of our Bible search link. We invite you to also sign our guestbook with your comments, questions, and pray request.

Again, we are glad that you stopped by our online site. May God bless you is our prayer!


Be a Five-Star Christian

A great church is made up of strong Christians and strong Christian families.

Read God's Word

The Bible says, "Faith cometh by hearing and hearing by the Word of God." Reading the Bible is vital to the Christian life. As we read the Bible, we should search the Scriptures, comparing Scripture with Scripture. Also, set a goal to memorize Scripture and meditate on the Word of God. In our personal lives and with our families each day, we need to be reading the Word of God.


We believe that God hears and answers prayer. There is no doubt about it, the greatest untapped resource in the Christian life is the matter of prayer. Pray each day. Pray for loved ones. Pray for church leaders and their families. Pray for your church. Pray for our nation. Pray for the lost. Establish a prayer list. Pray.

Attend Church Faithfully

The Lord Jesus Christ deserves your faithfulness. Attend every service of the church. A great deal of the strength of the church is based on the faithfulness of the people. Support special meetings at the church with your faithful attendance.


God's work is to be supported God's way. The Bible teaches that we should pay the tithe and give our offerings. Practice tithing as a conviction. Bring the Lord's tithe with you to church each Sunday. Support the ministries of the church with offerings. By faith give to worldwide missions. Support the Christian education endeavors of the church. We cannot outgive God.

Witness to the Lost

Our Lord Jesus Christ came to seek and to save that which was lost. He left us on earth to tell others about the Savior. Determine to bring others to the Savior. Work to bring other families to Christ and to the church. Set a time to go. Make a list of names and addresses of people you want to reach for Christ.
