Pastoral Care


First Dallas seeks to care for you not only spiritually, but also physically, mentally and emotionally. Our desire is that you know the love of Christ through the ministries here. Jesus calls His followers to be His hands and feet in a broken world. Through trained counselors and laymen who have accepted the call to serve, we wish to meet your needs and help you heal by pointing you to the only One who can heal and give you hope.

Our ministries are wide and varied but all are focused on caring for you and pointing you to Christ. These include: hospital ministry, bereavement, critical care, homebound, counseling, life and addiction recovery programs, baptism and missions.


We desire to care not only for our own members, but those outside of our church through missions. First Baptist Dallas is committed to partnering with missionaries locally, nationally, and internationally. Our vision is based on the Acts 1:8 model, “You shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”


Allow our wedding ministry to care for you on your big day. We invite you to take your first steps as husband and wife at First Baptist Church Dallas, a downtown landmark with a vibrant history.
