Welcome to First Baptist Church of Nashua!

Here are answers to some questions you may have:

Why should I go to church at First Baptist or any other church?
Belonging somewhere is a basic human need. Yes, you can pray alone and yes, you can be spiritual without being a church member. But there is something special about being in community and working together for a common purpose. You will also have the benefit of being part of a church family which will care about you and support you on your spiritual journey.

What time does the service start?
Service starts at 10:30 a.m. from September through June.
From July 1 through Labor Day, we meet at 9:30 a.m.
Don't worry about coming in late. You are always welcome!

What should I wear? 
You should wear whatever you feel comfortable.  You will see members in suits, jeans and everything in between!  We want you to be yourself and feel comfortable exploring your faith with us.  

Is the church easy to find?
We are a large white building set well back from the road at 121 Manchester Street in Nashua.  You'll see our prominent signboard by the road. Good news:  There's LOTS of parking!

Do children attend the service?
YES!  Children and youth are dismissed after Children's Time during the worship service for church school classes. Every first Sunday of the month, all children and youth are encouraged to remain in worship during the service and participate in the celebration of the Lord's Supper.  Professional child care is available for the very young.

Do you have classes for adults?
We offer educational opportunities for individuals of all ages.  Studies have ranged from a thirteen week study of Handel's Messiah and the Biblical passages referenced to a book discussion of Eben Alexander's Proof of Heaven and 
Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University. Current offerings are listed under Get Involved.



May I take communion if I am not a member or a Baptist?
 

Absolutely.  All are invited to Christ's table, including children and youth.  


Do I have to be baptized again by immersion in order to become a member?

We recognize baptisms from other traditions.  

 

What kind of opportunities are available to get to know other members?

Small group ministry is at the heart of what we do at First Baptist.  Our church school program for children and educational opportunities available to adults are the first points of connection for many.  Other opportunities include a weekly prayer group, all-church retreats, game and movie nights, fundraising activities, Bible study groups, women's and men's fellowship groups, local and global mission outreach groups and more. For specific opportunities, check for announcements here on this website, on our Facebook page or in the worship bulletin on Sunday mornings.
