Join us this Sunday!
First Baptist Spartanburg is a place where everyone can invite anyone to encounter the Living One, Jesus Christ. We’re a family. We have different last names, home addresses, occupations and live on different sides of town, have different skin, eye, and hair color, and different clothes. We meet under stained-glass windows and under concert-style lighting effects. We worship with pipe organs, orchestras, praise teams, and rock bands. But most importantly, our family gathers under the banner of Jesus as we seek God together. Join us this Sunday—we’ve saved you a seat.
4 SERVICES, 1 CONGREGATION

Frequently Asked Questions
What should I wear?
A TIE… OR MAYBE A T-SHIRT
Let’s relieve some pressure—Dress the way you like to dress. You’ll see everything from nice suits to t-shirts and shorts at FBS, and we wouldn’t have it any other way. Dress up if you like, but don’t feel pressured to look a certain way before you enter worship. The Lord Jesus was a homeless man (Matt 8:20), and most likely didn’t have a closet of nice suits!
What is the music like? And the message?
Depending on what service you attend, the music style will vary, but the central heart of worship will remain the same! It’s all about Jesus Christ.
What is your pastor like?
Our pastor, Dr. Don Wilton, is a regular person with a story to tell just like you or me. Originally from South Africa, Dr. Don and his wife Karyn have been proud American citizens for decades, and share a worldwide passion to share the Truth of the Gospel with a searching world. Dr. Wilton has seen a lot—youthful days of driving around Africa on a “motorbike”, serving as a tank commander, traveling to the USA as a newlywed with only a suitcase to his name, graduating and becoming a professor at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, traveling the world to give tours of Israel and the Holy Land, serving as personal pastor to Dr. Billy Graham—but his reminder to you and me is that the most important aspect of his life is Jesus Christ. Join us Sunday!
What should I do with my kids?
If you have children (birth – sixth grade), we have a fun, kid-friendly place just for them! They will experience ‘LIFE Groups 4 Kids’ offered during each worship hour, and KIDWORSHIP for 4 and 5 year olds.
I just don't think my life is right for church.
Not true! From the guy in the pulpit to the smiling face at the door, we’re all somewhere on a journey with God. Has yours started? We’re just beggars telling other beggars where to find food—in the Lord Jesus. Nothing in your past, present, or future is too big for God to get you through. Join us this Sunday, and let God speak right to your heart.
WE’LL BE THERE. WILL YOU?
Challenge God. Show up and ask Him to show up in a real way in your life. Talk to Him right now! Remember, you don’t have to walk into a church building for Him to hear or see you. The God of the universe is a word away. Talking to Him is the most important thing you can ever do. At FBS, you’ll see the slogan “In Christ More Is Possible Than You Can Ever Imagine” posted on walls, and all over our website and media—That’s because we believe it. Join us Sunday and see what Jesus does. In Christ more is possible than you can ever imagine.
