At First Baptist Ark City we endeavor to genuinely worship God through fellowship, singing, and teaching the Word of God. We believe effective worship should not be primarily about music, energy or some sort of experience. At the heart of Christian worship should be an attitude that ascribes “worth” to one person and one person alone: God Himself, the Creator, Sustainer, and Lord of the Universe.

To truly worship or praise God then is to value God and “prize” Him above all else.


During our time of worship, our focus must be on the Lord Jesus Christ. He is God in the flesh (John 1:11) and exclusively worthy of worship and praise (Revelation 4:11). Whether we sing traditional hymns or contemporary songs we desire to direct our worship not on ourselves or what God can do for us but on Jesus Christ alone and who He is, our Lord and Savior. 

Join us Sunday morning as we sing in genuine worship of Jesus and endeavor to grow closer to Him.
