|Church Description *|
|The cornerstone of First Baptist Dallas was laid in 1890 by a small group of believers determined to begin a Baptist church in downtown Dallas. Under the leadership of legendary pastors and teachers like George W. Truett and W.A. Criswell, First Baptist Dallas became an anchor in the Christian community, a church known for a firm foundation, built on the Bible.
As a beacon of hope for Dallas and the world, First Baptist Dallas is in the heart of downtown Dallas. With now over 12,000 members FBD influence and reach grows every day. The church, considered influential among evangelical Christians in the United States, also owns and operates a school, a radio station, and supports Dallas Life, a mission for the homeless on the southern edge of Downtown Dallas. Senior Pastor, Robert Jeffress, recently led the congregation in a $135 million campaign to re-create its downtown campus. The project is the largest in modern church history.
