about us

First Baptist Church Tyrone has been an anchor in Tyrone and the surrounding community for over 100 years. Far from being irrelevant, FBCT has continued to change with the times, though not in terms of biblical beliefs.


            We are purpose-driven to glorify God and make disciples who love God and people. We are pastor-led, Ministry organized, and congregationally authorized.  We are autonomous, self-governing, and cooperate with other Southern Baptist churches in our association, state, country and world.


            We understand that God created us for a glorious and loving relationship with Him that we exhibit as His image-bearers through compassionate service to others. When presented the opportunity, we have the privilege of testifying of God’s presence, guidance and adoring care and inviting others to respond to His opens arms through repentance and faith in Christ.

Our name

Here at First Baptist Church Tyrone (FBC Tyrone) we believe that God in His providential wisdom has placed us here for such a time as this. With a rich history reaching back over one hundred years, we also believe that God knew exactly what our community would be like and placed us here to engage our community in such a way that we might impact it with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Because of these beliefs, our name is meant to identify us with the community we have been called to serve. FBC Tyrone reflects our commitment to and resemblance of our surrounding area. By God’s grace we will be a beacon of hope as our lampstand burns bright in our community.
