A Church of New Beginnings

Welcome Pic

Welcome!  Welcome! 

To the First African Baptist Church of Saint Simons Island, Georgia! Thank you for visiting our website. We are honored that you have chosen to visit with us. We hope you will gain some insight into the ministry of our dynamic church. At First AB we are "the church of new BEGINNINGS!" God is creating a wonderful environment where we are developing, growing and strengthening in five areas: worship, discipleship, stewardship, fellowship and relationship.

As we embark on 157 years of rendering service to God, our focus is moving from religion to relationship! Our mission is to edify the Body of Christ, exalt the name of Jesus, empower the community and evangelize the world. We pray that you are blessed by something that you discover during your visit with us!
