About This Organization

Established in 1934, First Baptist Church of Venice, Florida, has been a light for the Gospel near historic downtown Venice for decades. Through the years, the church has prioritized ministry, missions, and evangelism.

In addition to the original downtown campus, FBC Venice also has the Lakefront Campus. With more than 21 acres, the church is finalizing construction plans for a new multi-purpose facility to reach those in the surrounding areas. This expansion is simply another example of how the people of FBC Venice have a “do whatever it takes” mentality to reach those around them. All of this while remaining debt-free!
