FBC Macon

Nurture. Love. Serve. ALL.

We’re proud of our Baptist history and heritage, but we’re also proud of our diversity. At First Baptist you will find a group of people coming from a variety of different church backgrounds and denominations who have found a home at the “top of Poplar.” And while our congregation comes from all over middle Georgia, we are a downtown church and see it is our mission to be the presence of Christ to our InTown and College Hill communities here in Macon.

Reflections from Sunday, guest blogger Kay Shurden

Church Family,

Sunday noon around the tables in the Fellowship Hall was a good time.  At my table we listened to each other's stories about what we used to believe about gender identity versus how we believe now.  Most of us have had personal relationships with people who identify as homosexual or transgender and those relationships have moved us from seeing the situation from an abstract "belief" category to a personal experience.

We came to believe people were more important that abstract categories.

We see scripture as important.  One person in our group talked about how Jesus consistently broke down walks between those who were excluded and included them in the embrace of God's love.  He kept including people whom his religion had excluded.

I am so grateful to our committee who developed a process where we focus on what holds us together as Christians versus what divides us.  

I came away with a wonderful potluck lunch and a wonderful sense of love in our church family.
