Welcome to First Baptist Church of Alva
Baptist Church of Alva is located on North Joel Blvd about one mile south of State Road 80. We would love for you to visit with us during one of our services or call the Church Office to arrange for a visit from the Pastor.
Please take some time and explore our media center. We would also encourage you to visit our Face Book page, but above all we would enjoy having you as our guest in person. All this technology is great, but we REALLY look forward to a visit from you and your family in person!
The First Baptist Church of Alva is a beautiful Church with even more beautiful people. We are a family friendly Southern Baptist Church that strives to make a difference in peoples lives. If you or your family are looking for a place to get plugged in and receive good Bible teaching, this is the place for you. If you are faithfully attending another Bible believing Church then we recommend that you stay there and serve, but if you are not currently attending another Church please consider coming to our Church. We are certain that you will just love our Church and especially our people.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

Due to the impact of the current pandemic, the church is currently in a period of adjustment. We are following the situation very closely and will be adapting our services and recommendations to you as the situation develops. This could mean frequent changes and adjustments. While our church services may adjust and adapt as the situation changes, the GOD that we serve does not! HE is the same yesterday, today, and forever. GOD is completely in control, so this is not a time that we should worry or be afraid. We serve a most powerful GOD, HE is King of Kings,and Lord of Lords… This is a time for us to commit to trust GOD!
The Pastor and Elders of this church are available to minister to you. Please contact the church and we will arrange the best way to minister to your personal needs. We commit to minister to your needs in such a way that will take into account your safety and personal concerns. Even though major changes are underway, we still consider our personal ministry to you our number one priority.
As Pastor, all I ask is that first and foremost that you maintain your spiritual condition. Secondly, understand that this is uncharted territory for me. Please be patient and supportive during this time. Just know that I am in prayer about what to do and how to do it. Please feel free to contact me with any concerns or suggestions. Our primary goal is to return to our “Pre-Virus” status as a church as soon as possible.
Please explore this website and visit it frequently to stay informed on the latest news concerning our church. I will try to keep the latest information posted under the “IMPORTANT UPDATES” section at the bottom of this page. We will try to keep the “CALENDAR” updated and current and we want to pray for your needs. Feel free to use the “PRAYER REQUEST” link at the bottom of the page. Now more than any time we must be a people of prayer!
