About Us

FBC Riesel has been serving the people of Riesel and proclaiming the Gospel since September 15, 1894.  Although our location and buildings have changed over the years, FBC has continued to pursue this mission.

During the Sunday morning worship service, our music style is a blend between contemporary worship and Baptist hymns. And no matter what book of the Bible is being preached from, you can expect to be engaged with a gospel centered message by our pastor each week.

Most Sundays we have a Kid's Church service that is available during the main service hour for pre-k to 6th students. The students are dismissed from the sanctuary  just after corporate worship to go to Kid's Church. But your kids are also welcome to stay in the sanctuary with you.

In addition, on the first Sunday of each month, we partake in the Lord’s Supper together.

Our church is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, Baptist General Convention of Texas, and the Waco Regional Baptist Association.

Our desire is that you feel welcome here at FBC, and that you leave having experienced an authentic encounter with the Holy Spirit.


We seek to nurture the faith that the Lord gives every person  in our midst, both inside and outside of our church membership, by growing together in fellowship and unity.


We seek to serve all people in both physical and spiritual ways, by ministering to the local community and reaching the ends of the earth in Christ’s love.


We seek to live in the fullness of Christ-likeness and the power of the Holy Spirit, by continuing  to grow in faith, hope, and love as a vibrant and healthy congregation.
