Welcome to Helen First Baptist Church!  

We are a community of Christ-followers who care about every nation and every generation.  That’s why we connect with people of all ages here at home and across the world to share good news: Jesus is calling you out of the shadows and out of the crowd and into a new life in Him—a life that is being transformed from the inside out.
