Our Church


We are an independent, fundamental Baptist Church located on the north side of Bakersfield, California. First Bible Baptist Church was founded in 1964 by a group of people who saw a need for a Bible preaching church on the north side of the city. First Bible Baptist Church started a Christian school ministry, Golden State Baptist Schools, in 1979. We have grades K-12. Our school is a member of the Golden State Association of Christian Schools.
