Our vision for worship is to engage believers to worship in spirit and truth (John 4:23).  We offer two distinctively different worship services to meet your spiritual needs.

Contemporary Worship

Sunday Morning - 10:55 a.m.

A vibrant worship experience that includes a fresh mix of current worship songs in a variety of styles. Visitors can expect scripture-based teaching in an inviting atmosphere. Dress is very casual.
 You can expect to hear driving guitars, drums, & electronics, acoustic, celtic, and folk-style music that can be heard on contemporary top-40 Christian music radio stations.

Traditional Worship


Sunday Morning - 8:25 a.m. 

The traditional service seeks to worship God and serve attendees through tried and true hymns and gospel music. The service has a unique style that will have you tapping your toes one moment, and in peaceful contemplation the next. Driven by the talented vocalists and accompanists in the traditional choir, the First Southern Baptist Church, Topeka traditional service offers a familiar, comfortable feeling to anyone seeking that old time religion.

Worship Beliefs

Worship is our personal and gathered response to God, in spirit and in truth, in appreciation for who He is and what He has done. It is expressed by what we say, sing and most of all, the way we live. The worship ministries at First Southern Baptist Church focus mainly on singing and playing instruments; however, we do not believe that playing and singing praise to God in a church service is, in and of itself, a complete worship experience. We do believe that singing praise to God is a command to all and is a powerful and correct way to respond to our God’s blessings.

Psalm 66:1-2 states:

"All together now—applause for God!
Sing songs to the tune of his glory,
set glory to the rhythms of his praise."

The messages that our songs communicate are central to how we lead the members of FSBC in worship. It matters little whether our music is loud or soft, fast or slow, performed by the entire band or a single voice...the heart of our music must and will always accurately reflect the message of the Scriptures. Though we believe our enjoyment of God brings Him glory and praise, truly authentic worship is not about what we want, need, or prefer. He is our joy and satisfaction, and we relish in directing all praise and glory to Him.

How Can You Get Involved?

The worship ministry of FSBC Topeka wants to help you to use your gifts and talents to their fullest potential in order to glorify God. To become part of the worship ministry you first must be a believer in Christ. In addition, you must be an attendee of FSBC weekly worship services and in a small group Bible study either on Sunday morning or sometime during the week. Please call the church to get information on small groups that are available.
