First Baptist Church of Burleson (FBC Burleson) is a Great Commission-oriented community church of the Southern Baptist Convention, reaching the residents of Burleson through a 130-year heritage of ministry.


Since 1998, the church has balanced traditional norms with a growing community and the needs that accompany such growing. In the past five years, the church embraced a new governance structure and added new facility infrastructure. Led by sound biblical teaching, a strong ministry to young families, alongside thriving men’s and women’s ministries, the church is marked by an authentic culture of loving people who strive to achieve excellence in all they do for the Kingdom.


First Baptist Church of Burleson seeks a Senior Pastor to lead their ongoing efforts to lead people to pursue radical transformation by taking next steps toward Jesus. The Senior Pastor will provide vision for all of the ministries and activities of First Baptist Burleson, and with the Trustees and staff of the church, ensure that the strategic ministry objectives of the church are attained.
