What to Expect

Welcome to First Baptist Church Port Tampa

We understand visiting a new church can sometimes be overwhelming. We want to set your heart and mind at ease and encourage you to experience the presence and love of God in our service. Below is what you can expect to experience during your visit.


What to Expect

Service Start Times:

Our Sunday morning worship service starts at 11:00am. Sunday evening service are suspended until further notice. Wednesday, Bible Study starts at 7:00pm. 



We offer breakfast and fellowship, before settling into the Sunday School @ 8:30AM. Donations appreciated.


Sunday School

If you would like to attend Sunday School classes we offer, class starts every Sunday morning at 9:45am. For more information on these classes and where they are located please contact Carolyn Shives (813)839-2946 prior to coming.



We have classes for the adult Bible Study. Each quarter we change studies. These classes provide the opportunity for you to meet new people and to nurture authentic friendships with people who are seeking fellowship and growth just like you.

Visitor Recognition

On Sunday morning first time visitors are requested to identify themselves at the start of service by raising their hand. We want to make you welcome by recognizing you and a visitor card to fill out. 


Children’s Church 

We have Children’s Church K5-4th Grade if you have children in this age group with you. It gives the kids church related activities to do while the adult service is running. Contact Carolyn Shives for more details (813)839-2946. No nursery provided for newborns thru 4 years old.



 We are more concerned about meeting your needs than what you wear. You will find men in jeans, suits and polo shirts. You can dress up or down; Ladies will wear a dress, pant suits, or jeans. What matters is that you come willing to learn from God’s Word and ready to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.



We offer on-site parking in the back of the church for all members and visitors. Handicap parking is also available for those that require it.
