Welcome to First Baptist Church of Dubuque, IA. We are a warm, loving church and we hope you find your time spent with us a blessing. Feel free to browse through the various areas of our website and learn more about our fellowship.

If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you join our congregation.

When you visit First Baptist, you will find:

  • A caring congregation that will gladly welcome you
  • Preaching/teaching that is centered on the Word of God

We practice open communion at First Baptist. That means if you have accepted Christ as your Savior, you are welcome to join with us during communion. We celebrate the Lord's Table during the first Sunday of each month. Our communion bread is nut-free, gluten-free, and dairy-free so that all of the Church body is able to partake together in unity. 

COVID-19 POLICY: The FBC Board is currently leaving the wearing of masks during worship to the individual's personal discretion. The CDC is now advising mask wearing according to the community threat level and a person's own health risks. Please visit their website or consult your physician to learn more about what is best for you and your family. We will continue to have hand sanitizer and disposable masks (adult and child) available at both door entrances for those that need them.
