Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of First Free Will Baptist Church Of Visalia is our mission to the world. It begins in our own  community, and spreads overseas to every nation. Visalia First members are involved in a variety of ministries from things as simple as washing the church vehicles, to preparing the church bulletins. See some of our ministries are listed below, see more listed ministries at Church Ministries.


Music & Drama

God-honoring worship is something we strive for. Many church members get involved in our music and drama ministry. Some play their instruments. Some are vocalists. Others are involved in the choir. Still others get involved in drama. These volunteers are an important part of the ministry of First Free Will Baptist Church Of Visalia, using their talents and gifts to glorify God.



The usher team at First Free Will Baptist Church fills an important role. They are involved in directing attendees to their seats, ensuring the safety of the building during services, handing out bulletins, guiding traffic, helping visitors, answering questions, providing direction, unlocking doors, locking doors, collection of Tithes and Offerings, and generally ensuring that the service can proceed problem-free. The usher team is a servant-hearted group of men and women whose ministry is integral to church life.


Media & Technology

Using media to spread the gospel is a privilege of First Free Will Baptist Church. In an age of widespread technology, we have a stewardship to use these tools as best as possible for kingdom purposes. All of our weekly sermons are uploaded to our website in video and audio formats. We also maintain an active Facebook and Twitter feed for additional church communication.


Marriage & Family Counseling

Marriages can be difficult to maintain. Misunderstanding, confusion, resentment, and anger can flare up in any marriage. Several couples at First Free Will Baptist Church serve other families as marriage counselors. Their role in listening, understanding, helping, and encouraging struggling couples has, by God’s grace, saved marriages, and repaired relationships. Couples have found fresh hope and new joy in a warm and fulfilling relationship with their spouse.


Prayer Warriors

Prayer cannot be overestimated. Prayer moves the hand of God. First Free Will Baptist Church Of Visalia is a body of believers dependent upon prayer, and committed to God’s sovereignty. Each Sunday, during the morning service, a team of volunteers is praying for the ministry of the Word. Throughout the week, volunteers to our Prayer Warriors team, pray for their pastor, a list of church members, any special requests, and missionary prayer needs. Each Tuesday, the church comes together for a special time of prayer and Bible study.


Children’s Church

In order to give our children the best Bible teaching possible, First Free Will Baptist Church holds a children’s church service in conjunction with the main service. This special time gives kids more opportunity for interaction and learning in a context and manner that may be better suited to their age and learning styles. Our friendly children’s church volunteers have an endless stream of creativity–ranging from puppet shows, to games, to object lessons.


Women’s Ministries

The purpose of First Free Will Baptist women’s ministries is to lead women to the heart of God through the Grace of the Gospel of Jesus Christ; to build up and equip each woman by means of the Truth of God’s Word; and to be a community of women engaged in true fellowship, passionate prayer and world-wide impact. Special events are offered for fun and connection. These include activities such as women’s retreats, Mug’s Of Prayer, and much more.


Youth Ministry

Our prayer and desire is to glorify God by seeing lives changed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. The student ministry of the First Free Will Baptist Church seeks to see students connect with others in gospel-centered relationships, to see students grow in their relationship with Jesus, and to raise up a generation of students who give of themselves for others.
