Located in the heart of downtown, First Baptist Dallas was built on the Bible and continues its mission to transform the world with God’s Word . . . one life at a time.

As a multi-generational church community, we meet needs through a variety of:

  • worship experiences;
  • Sunday School and discipleship options;
  • mission opportunities; and
  • fellowship and outreach events.

There’s always something happening here, and we’d love to help you plug in!



The cornerstone of First Baptist Dallas was laid in 1890 by a small group of believers determined to begin a Baptist church in downtown Dallas. Under the leadership of legendary pastors and teachers like George W. Truett and W.A. Criswell, First Baptist Dallas became an anchor in the Christian community, a church known for a firm foundation built on the Bible.

Led by Dr. Robert Jeffress since 2007, we continue that legacy today. Dr. Jeffress ushered in a new season of ministry at the church that reinforces our calling to reach our city, nation, and world for Christ through four primary courses of action:

  1. Worship

    We currently offer two choir- and orchestra-led services, a contemporary worship service, and an online experience through our First Dallas iCampus.
  2. Equip

    Members and visitors will find active, thriving Sunday School classes for every age and life stage. Our Discipleship University ministry offers two semesters of classes on Sunday evenings.
  3. Serve

    It is our goal to equip, empower, and deploy every member of our body to serve in the role and gifting to which the Lord has called them.
  4. Influence

    We have stepped into the fray to be a voice for truth in a world hungry for answers.
