About

In The Heart Of Riverdale. 

Our church is located between “old downtown” Riverdale and the new Town Center-City Hall. We’re in front of the City of Riverdale’s recreational park and walking trail, just two blocks south of the post office and the fire station. In fact, our church has been in the very “heart of Riverdale” for more than one hundred years.


A Heart for Riverdale.

First Baptist Riverdale shows love for the people of Riverdale in many ways. As a founding church of “I Pray for Riverdale” Community Prayer Ministry, we lead the way in bringing the gift of prayer, door by door, to the people of Riverdale. An emergency food pantry helps our neighbors in need. The church also provides meeting space for Weight Watchers, Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and other community groups.


A Heart for the People of Riverdale. 

First Baptist Riverdale looks like our community. Riverdale is diverse and so are we. Every Sunday people of all races and nationalities join together to worship God. Faith in God and trust in His Son, Jesus, as Savior, brings together people from many ethnic groups. Currently all worship services are in English.  


A Heart for Children and Youth.

We have a special love for children and young people and show our love by being actively involved in our local schools, offering weekly ministries for children and teens, and providing summer ministries like Vacation Bible School and Day Camp. Our Pastor is a “Weekly Reader” at Riverdale Elementary School.


A Heart for God.

Above all, First Baptist of Riverdale has a heart for God. Our church family shares a common faith. They have accepted Christ as Savior and followed Him in believer’s baptism. They believe in the importance of prayer, Bible study, fellowship, and sharing the Good News that Jesus Christ came to save all people. They seek to honor God in lively worship services and in their daily lives.
