"Where we serve God, teach God's Word and demonstrate Christ's love."



First Baptist is an American Baptist church located in the small river town of Cordova, IL.  While residing in Cordova, we also serve our Lord in the surrounding countryside and communities of Port Byron, Hampton, and Rapid City.


At First Baptist, we seek to know our Lord Jesus Christ intimately through worship and Bible Study.  As we grow closer to Him, we are nothing but compelled to love each other and those we come in contact with all the more.


We desire that you know this unconditional love that we experience.  Come, and worship with us!
