From humble beginnings in a railroad box car to its current 90-acre "light on a hilltop" location, First Baptist Church of Broken Arrow has ministered to the Tulsa area since 1904.
In 1999, FBCBA constructed and moved into a new 1,700-seat worship center located at 100 W. Albany (61st and Elm, off the BA Expressway) on more than 90 acres of land. Construction of a 50,000 sq. ft. Education Center and adjacent Student Center was completed in March 2004. In January of 2008 the “ARC (athletic and recreational center) was finished being constructed and opened. This building was the final phase of a 3 phase building program which was all done debt free! The ARC has a full size gymnasium, running track, locker rooms, various fitness equipment, a full size commercial Kitchen, banquet facilities, 16 education rooms, a coffee lounge area, a formal dining/meeting room, along with many other fitness programs to offer the community and members of FBCBA.
First Baptist Church of Broken Arrow holds to the core beliefs of the Southern Baptist Convention, as outlined in the The Baptist Faith and Message. We believe that the Bible is the infallible, inspired, inerrant word or God.
The people of FBCBA are normal, everyday people who live normal lives in the greater Tulsa area. We are family-oriented, community-minded, authentic believers, who love our church and the area we live in. We accept people for who they are, not for what they look like or what they wear. We invite and welcome you to experience our gatherings on Sundays.
Pastor Nick Garland has been the Senior Pastor at FBCBA for over 20 years. Pastor Nick is known for his Pastor's heart, great sense of humor and leadership. In 1998, he cast the vision to move the church to our present location up on "the hill." The new worship center opened in 2000. The campus now consists of a 1700 seat worship center, 2 story education building, and a 2 story gymnasium and family life center.
