First Baptist Church of Topeka
New Member Orientation Courses

First Baptist Church welcomes everyone into our fellowship.  Anyone who wants to join as a member is welcome.

If and when you do decide to join our church as a member, the main thing we ask of you is that you attend two 2-hour courses that will help you become oriented to your new church home and help answer any questions you may have.  We ask that all new members complete the 2 courses in the track that best fits your religious background and knowledge.

The “First Baptist Church 101” course is recommended for all new members and is scheduled regularly.  The other courses will be scheduled according to the schedules and availability of those who will be taking the course.
