Welcome to First Baptist Church!
715 W. Walnut St., Blytheville, AR

FBC is an older church with a new vision. We are diligently working to make sure the time you spend with us during worship is the highlight of your week.  Dr. Ron, our Senior Pastor, teaches practical but spiritual messages at all our services to help each of us experience God and grow in Christ-likeness.  Everyone is welcome at any and all of our services!


Sunday Morning Teaching Series from Dr. Ron

Starting on Sunday morning, September 30, Dr. Ron will begin teaching a series simply called: "PROMISES."  This 9 part series will explore 9 of the greatest promises of God in the Bible.  You won't want to miss a single one.

Sunday evening teaching series

This 26-week series is an in-depth look at 1 Peter.  Attendees will receive a learner's guide each week to take notes on as we learn from the Apostle Peter how to live together as fellow followers of Jesus.

Dr. Ron will teach this series in the 6 p.m. worship service that meets in the Chapel.  

Everyone is welcome and invited to this informal and blended style service.

Meet our Senior Pastor

Dr. Ron Wilcoxson is our new Senior Pastor.  He brings a new vision to our church in Blytheville, leading us to provide Spirit-filled worship, family oriented Bible study in Blytheville and beyond, and creating ministries for each member of the family.  He has served as the lead Pastor in churches as large as 2100 members and 1600 in average attendance.  His churches have typically been fast growing with lots of people making professions of faith in Christ.  He has been a pioneer in leading multiple service/multiple style churches, although for the last 15 years, his churches have been primarily contemporary worship churches.  Dr. Ron has been married to Angela for 43 years.  They have four grown kids, with 2 that serve vocationally as worship leaders. Dr. Ron is committed to a healthy and strong children's & youth ministry, which includes outstanding daycare in Blytheville.  He also loves worshiping, teaching and leading others to Jesus.  And, he's pretty good at golf, too.
