Visit a Service

We believe that you should be able to meet God at church, so every service at Falls Baptist Church is prayerfully filled with stirring congregational singing, uplifting music from our choir and orchestra, and biblical preaching by Pastor Van Gelderen. You will find his messages to be practical, Christ-centered, and challenging. Childcare is available for ages 0-3 years during all services.

Where Do I Go Next?

If you parked in the Guest Parking lot…
The main entrance to the auditorium lobby will be to your left or in front of you, depending on how you are standing. There are several sets of glass doors underneath an overhang with large white pillars. Once you enter those doors you will be right in front of Guest Services, and they will be able to direct you from there.

If you parked behind the building…
You will want to enter through the doors on the southwest corner of the building. A greeter should be there to meet you and help direct you.

Other FAQ’s

There is not a dress code at Falls Baptist Church for members or guests. Our ministry leaders and many of our church family dress in more traditional “Sunday” dress. However, our main goal is that you would feel welcome and comfortable on your visit here at Falls Baptist Church!
No. Though you are welcome to participate if you would like to, we don’t invite you to Falls Baptist Church for your offering. We simply want to be a blessing to you and hope that you will find Falls Baptist to be a place where you can develop a deep and personal relationship with God in a warm family atmosphere. Please don’t feel obligated in any way to participate in the offering as a guest.
We believe that music in the church is not about us or entertainment; it is about worshiping God “in spirit and in truth.” As a result, our music is what most people call “traditional” church music. You will enjoy singing the rich hymns with the congregation and be blessed by the beautiful special music from our choir and orchestra. Since our music is “conservative,” you will find that it speaks directly to your heart in a powerful way that directs your eyes to Jesus. Click here to listen to samples of our music.
Sunday Morning services are typically about an hour and fifteen minutes. Sunday Evening services generally fluctuate between an hour and fifteen minutes and an hour and forty-five minutes.
