First Baptist Church BuildingLitchfield First Baptist Church is a group of a dedicated Christians striving to live for our Lord and to reach our community with the message of Jesus Christ. The church began in 1839 with 7 people and has been a part of Litchfield for over 170 years. Having outgrown the building we have occupied since 1912, we have recently moved to our new property on the east side of town.

Our message is intentionally Biblical, with an emphasis on revealing the Bible’s power and relevance to this generation. Our ministry is tailored to the needs of the family and to have a family feel. God is at work at LFBC, and you are invited to join us and be a part of what the Lord is doing in us, to us, and through us. Please take a moment to browse through our website and call us if you have any questions (517-542-3388). We look forward to having you join us for an upcoming service.

Sunday Morning Worship

The morning worship service is the focal point of our week. This service is made of congregational singing, God honoring special music, and a message from God’s Word. This service begins at 11AM and is approximately one hour long.


Sunday School

Sunday school is an opportunity for each member of your family to have the Word of God taught to them right at their age level. In the adult classes, we use this time to discuss current issues from a biblical basis. Sunday school begins at 9:45AM and is approximately one hour long.


Sunday Evening Service

The Sunday evening service is a special time for our church family and others to come together in a somewhat more relaxed setting and enjoy some straight forward Bible teaching. The Sunday evening service begins at 6PM and is approximately one hour long.


Mid-Week Service

The Mid-Week Service is the focal point of our children’s programs. Each Wednesday evening during the school year, the Awana program is busy with children’s activities. This program includes games, scripture memory, and Bible teaching every week. It is well staffed and supervised to provide a safe and fun learning environment for your child. The prayer service begins at 7PM and is approximately one hour long. The Awana program begins at 6:30PM and runs until 8PM.


Youth Program

The youth program is designed for those in Junior High and High School and is intended to challenge this age group to develop a closer relationship with their God as well as provide a great opportunity to have a good time together in all its various activities.

Spreading the Gospel

We are excited to have a wonderful team of missionaries who are allowing God to do awesome things through each of them, in all parts of the world. Our goal is to partner with these fellow believers in order to see the lost saved through faith in Jesus, the saved grow in their walk with the Lord, and to see God receive ALL the glory! We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to support this group of people who have so willingly responded to the call of God. Would you take a moment today and be an encouragement to one of our missionaries by sending them an email? Let them know you are thinking of them and will pray for them – then do it! Knowing that their supporting churches are thinking of them is a major blessing to all of our missionaries.

Who We Are

We are an independent Baptist church that loves people and preaches the Word of God. We still believe the Bible has all the answers for man’s spiritual need, that being — a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.


Our Prayer

That you will come out and join us for a worship service and see what God has for you from His Word.


Our Mission

Biblically, we understand that our primary mission is to honor and love our God. We do this by fulfilling His plan for the church. This plan includes two major areas — 1) To introduce people to Jesus Christ and to encourage them to accept Him as their Lord and Savior, and 2) To build up and encourage believers to grow in a meaningful relationship with Jesus Christ.


Our Message

Our message is — simply, the message of the Bible — God loves you and desires to save you from your sin. Because of this sin of Adam and Eve, the entire human race, including you, are by nature separated from God who is holy and righteous. Even the best of our human endeavors fail to earn us favor with God.

But (to God) we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags. ~ Isaiah 65:6

Because God is a God of love, even when we were unable to reach out to Him on our own, He reached down to us and provided a precious gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ.

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16

Christ paid the price for our sins that we could not pay and provided for us righteousness that we could not earn. This “God given righteousness” is available to all who will come to the recognition of their sin and humbly trust Christ as their Lord and Savior.
