Home / new here?

We are so glad that you have taken the time to visit our website and learn more about First Baptist Church of Oakville. We encourage you to visit our church next. The information here will help make your first visit meaningful and enjoyable. If you would like to talk to us in person, or if you have any questions that are not addressed here, please feel free to contact us. We hope to see you soon!


Where is the church?

We are easy to find! We are located, in South St. Louis County, three miles south of the Telegraph exit from I-255, at the intersection of Telegraph Road and Heintz Road. There is a traffic signal at that intersection. Click here for a map.

When are your services?

Our Sunday morning service begins at 10:15 a.m. We would encourage you to arrive by 10:00 to give yourself time to park, stop at our first-time guest area and get to your seat. We even have coffee available in the side foyer off the sanctuary. Help yourself!

What is your worship service like?

The music is a mix of traditional hymns and contemporary Christian. It is arranged in a way that it will relate to Christians of any age. The preaching is done expositorily and presented in a way that it can be understood what it is the scriptures are telling us. We are a family so, it has a real family atmosphere. We also have hearing assistance devices available for the service.

How do people dress at your church?

You’ll find some people wear suits or dresses, others are more comfortable in slacks or jeans.  The important thing to remember about what you decide to wear on Sunday, whether formal or casual, is to feel comfortable with what you wear, and that you are welcome!

Where do I park? Where do I go?

The best place to park if you are a guest is the front parking lot. Come into the building through the Worship Center entrance that faces Telegraph Road.  Handicap parking spaces are clearly marked. As you enter the building, you will be greeted by one of our members at the door. They will be able to guide you in the right direction, or answer questions.

What about my kids?

Kids Praise is our children’s worship ministry during the morning worship service. This is for kids in K-5th grade. They meet on the lower level. 

We also have kids ministry for nursery and pre-K during the service on the lower level.

Our greeting team will be happy to help you and your family get to the kids are

Do you have Sunday School?

Yes, Sunday School begins at 9:00 a.m. with something for every age group. All classes meet on the lower level, except one of our senior adult classes meets on the main level. Ask a greeter for assistance in finding a class just for you.


Can I meet the Pastor?

Guests are encouraged to meet the Pastor. He is usually greeting worshipers in the front foyer, as you enter and exit the building. You can also schedule a time throughout the week to meet with him and his wife.
