About First Baptist Church

First Baptist Cove is a long-established church, founded in 1885, with a great opportunity to reach people from all over our country and world for Christ. We are located on the west side of Fort Hood which is home to about 35,000 active-duty soldiers and their families. The population of Copperas Cove is also about 35,000 people. Due to the presence of the military, we have a large population of millennials and Gen Zs. Much of the rest of the population consists of retired soldiers, government employees, and school district employees.

We state our vision as "A multi-generational church reaching the next generations for Christ." We gear our major outreach efforts around the young families who populate our city. We currently have 300 to 375 people attending on an average Sunday morning. Our worship style is blended. We use a band and vocal team to lead. Our desire is to be contemporary while not abandoning all that is traditional.
