Welcome to FBCMI

We are committed to living out our faith and sharing the love of Christ with the world.

Our Mission

First Baptist Church Murrells Inlet exists to Equip the Family for One Pursuit: Glorify God. As His people, we are stewards of everything God entrusts to us. This stewardship begins in our homes. Deuteronomy 6 calls believers to diligently teach their children who God is and what He has done. This familial stewardship is also the church's commision. We are a family.

As we seek to glorify God, we continually grow in our relationship with Him and others and go proclaim the glorious Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our Services

As His body, the church, we are called to gather together to worship Him. Each service is directed to give Him praise, glory, and honor. Currently, we are journeying through the Book of Acts as we see the Lord establish His Church and the role and function it plays in His Kingdom. Through the empowering of His Holly Spirit we canl see how the Lord is equipping us to share the great news of His gospel and to come alongside one another in love encouraging, supporting, and correcting each other to live Holy lives.

We meet at 9:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on Sundays.
