Who we are

First Baptist Church of Kouts is a family-friendly church comprised of people that come not only from Kouts but also from Wheatfield, Hebron, and Valparaiso. We exist to help you and everyone in your family grow spiritually in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Without this relationship through faith in Jesus, we have no hope for an eternity with God.  

Our goal is to help you take those steps of faith and in doing so bring glory to God. Assisting you on your journey is our main objective, that's why we have bible studies on Sunday mornings for everyone in your family. We also have Awana throughout the school year for your kids to take steps on their journey as well. We have Sunday night life groups during the fall and spring to help you develop the skills to walk in a way that pleases God. Like we said, your spiritual journey through Jesus Christ is of utmost importance to us, our passion as we seek to bring God glory.

What to expect

We are a church that seeks to see an outward change develop from an inward transformation of the heart. We don’t have a set of rules as to how to present yourselves on Sundays, that’s why you’ll see some attend in t-shirts and shorts and others with their Sunday best. 

Our worship through singing trends towards a contemporary style as we sing old time hymns of the faith, new hymns of the faith, and modern praise and worship songs that bring honor and glory to our God. We gather together around the Bible as it’s preached and taught with the goal of life change so that we might display our faith in a way that shows compassion, lives out love, and seeks holiness in all that we do.  

Relationships are another way we encourage one another to grow in our relationship with Jesus. Through singing and bible study, we rejoice with one another, weep with one another, encourage one another, and challenge one another to walk in a manner that reflects the calling to which God has called us.

Lastly, we hope you’ll find us to be a group of people that through faith in Jesus Christ have become a large, loving family. We strive for this to be on display from the moment you walk in to the moment you leave. We’re so excited to have you as our guest. We’ll have coffee on, we can’t wait to meet you!
