First Baptist Church of Waukegan


We’re glad you found your way to us. C’mon in, and have a look around!!

FBC is a vibrant, downtown faith community on a mission to bring God’s wholeness to our fractured world. We are serious followers of Jesus with a passion to see lives transformed and our city revitalized. With a reputation for uncommon hospitality, our multi-cultural membership lovingly embraces those from all walks of life and backgrounds just as we would Christ Himself. In fact, FBC mirrors and celebrates Waukegan’s own rich diversity, with everyone from PhD scientists to homeless vets calling us their church home.

Whether you are looking for seasoned traveling companions to join you on the twists and turns of the spiritual journey…or seeking a place to roll up your sleeves and meaningfully serve God through serving neighbor… FBC may just be the sort of church you’d like to explore further. Please feel free to contact our staff personally if you wish to connect. We’ll be right here waiting for you. The coffee pot is always on at FBC!!
