To Know Christ and Make Him Known


Flowood Baptist Church was 'born' during a tent revival in 1941, first being known as Pearl City Baptist Church and located in a section of Pearl that would later become Flowood.  As this new community grew and prospered, the church's name was changed to match the community.  Over the next fifty years of growth and renovation, it became a landmark of Flowood Drive.  As the industry around the church developed, the highway department disclosed plans to 4-lane Highway 468 (Flowood Drive), the lanes of which just happened to run right through the center of Flowood Baptist's auditorium.  The church was forced to seek a new location. After much prayer and searching, several acres were found for a new church site on Old Fannin Road in a fast growing residential area of Flowood.

Plans were drawn and a new multi-purpose building emerged.  The new auditorium area has served double duty at times. It is the site of our Worship Services and has served as fellowship hall space. It includes a kitchen for dinners and other activities.

At first classroom space was adequate, but we soon outgrew it.  Plans to expand were made and an new Educational building was built.  It contains adult classrooms and a Fellowship Hall.  In August 2011, FBC members voted for an architect to go forward with a with an updated "Master Plan" design of a new Worship Center and a way to improve the usage of the existing buildings.  The FBC Building Team is working regularly with a contractor to develop plans for the new facility. This new building will include a larger Sanctuary space for Worshiping our Lord and Savior, new Office space and additional classrooms. The existing buildings will be remodeled to improve the nursery and children's areas, the youth activity areas and fellowship hall space. Plans include removal of the old church office and adding more Handicap parking areas plus an additional covered drop off area. We believe this is God's exciting plan for Flowood Baptist Church. We encourage you to come be a part of the excitement at Flowood Baptist Church as we continue to grow, build and share with others the message of Jesus Christ.
