Our team consists of real people just like you. They have good times and hard times just like everyone else. Raising kids, paying bills, celebrating birthdays and mourning losses. It’s part of life for everyone. One thing is for sure, they love God and they love First Baptist Church. Our prayer is that we will minister to your family as we grow together to be “The Family of God.”

Senior Pastor Larry Strandberg

Welcome to First Baptist Mabank! As a follower of Christ and pastor, my passion is to connect people to Christ: for the lost to know Him; for the de-churched to reconnect with Him; for the faithful to grow deeper in their knowledge of Him and service to Him. No matter where one is on life’s journey in relation to God,  I want to help you on your faith journey. First Baptist is set up to meet your spiritual needs with multiple worship services and Bible studies. When you attend, please meet me at Visitor’s Center after the morning worship service. I look forward to meeting you soon.”

In Christ,
Pastor Larry Strandberg II
