Southern Baptist Convention

Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Opelousas, a church rich in history and with a vision of ministry for the future. We believe God planted us here to be a beacon of light to every person who lives in this area; to present you with the claims of Jesus Christ for your life, and lead you to grow to maturity in Christ if you choose to become a believer. We have spiritual growth opportunities for every member of your family, and you can be as active in serving the Lord here at First Baptist as you want to be. You will not find a more friendly, loving, and compassionate group of people than those of First Baptist. You will enjoy our blend of traditional and contemporary music, and be challenged weekly from the proclamation of God's Word. We also offer dynamic growth opportunities in small group Bible study and discipleship courses as well as youth ministry, children's ministry, both men's and women's ministry, Wednesday night activities, and many, many other spiritual growth and ministry opportunities. We invite you to come and discover your God-given spiritual gifts and employ them in service here at First Baptist in the Body of Christ. I would love the opportunity to serve as your pastor. Pray about God's leadership in bringing you to join the "family" of First Baptist Church of Opelousas! Dr. Perry C. Hubbs

Head west from the exit. 3. Turn left onto the South Service Road that is on the west side of I-49.
