Worship Services

​Worship at First Baptist

Genuine worship stirs our hearts, stimulates our minds, and motivates our feet for Christian living. The Worship Services at First Baptist Nashville are focused on an “Audience of One” – The Lord God Almighty, Master and Creator of all the universe. It is our desire to honor, magnify, and lift up the precious name of Jesus through the powerful preaching of God’s Word along with dynamic praise and worship music.  

A variety of creative expressions are employed to lead believers in meaningful, intimate worship with their Lord as we seek to impact others with the life-changing Good News of Jesus Christ. These expressions include offerings of praise rendered by our choirs and orchestra, personal testimonies, the reading of scripture, solos and ensembles, guest artists, drama, thrilling congregational singing, and speaking to God through prayer.  

We invite you to join our family of faith in grand celebrations designed to lead us to moments of transformation and wonder.   

The Sanctuary Service

10:30 a.m.  |  Sundays  |  Sanctuary

Following 9 a.m. Bible study, The Sanctuary Service with a choir begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Sanctuary. We experience worship using the
Celebrating Grace Hymnal and our 59-rank Schantz organ and orchestra, on occasion. We employ a variety of creative expressions to provide meaningful, intimate worship. The Word of God is powerfully proclaimed through biblically-based sermons.

Following the musical portion of our worship time, our pastor, Dr. Frank R. Lewis, will lead us in a biblically-based sermon. Feel free to use the portion of your Order of Worship to write notes. In case you’d like to refer back to the sermon later on in the week, visit our streaming page to hear the sermon again.

The Fellowship on Broadway

8:15 a.m. & 10:30 a.m.  |  Sundays  |  Chapel

The Fellowship on Broadway service meets at both 8:15 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. in our renovated Chapel. This service is more modern and informal in nature. The music is led by a gifted worship team using contemporary hymn arrangements and new songs, followed by a biblically-based message proclaiming the Word of God.

The Midweek Prayer Service

 6:00 p.m.  |  Wednesdays  |  Fellowship Hall

Following our fellowship meal, The Midweek Prayer Service begins at 6:00 p.m. and features a time of fellowship and devotion. Our pastor will normally speak but there are plenty of guest speakers featured. It’s a time for us to gather, catch up, and spiritually be refreshed in the middle of the week.
