Bible Study

At First Baptist Church of Asheville

We seek to provide opportunities for Christian spiritual formation. We invite you to participate in one of our Sunday morning Bible study communities, exploring the intersection between faith and everyday life. We want to help you find a small group where you will feel cared for, challenged, and inspired. In our Bible study communities, you can . . .

  • Engage in honest conversations
  • Build authentic relationships
  • Explore tough questions
  • Cultivate your mind
  • Nourish your soul
  • Grow in your faith
  • Encounter God and respond to God’s call

Each Sunday morning
We have age-graded communities for children birth-sixth grade and youth in grades 7-12. We also have a variety of Sunday morning Bible study communities for adults, some defined by age or stage of life, while others are intergenerational communities exploring their faith together.

Compass: Finding Your Way at FBCA

An orientation class offered in March and October

If you are new to the First Baptist Church of Asheville community, or if you’ve been here for a while and are interested in getting more deeply involved in the mission and ministry of the church, please join the ministers for this time of fellowship and conversation about our faith tradition, our worship life, and the many ways to be a part of this community of faith. Compass is an opportunity to ask questions about the church, meet the ministerial staff, get to know other people on their journey of faith and church connection, and learn how to get involved in our common life and ministry.

During our time together, we will provide a brief orientation to our ministries, talk about our worship and the ways we read and interpret scripture together, and discuss next steps for becoming more involved. Each week will be led by one or more of our ministers, from 9:45 – 10:35 a.m.
