From Our Pastor
Thank you for visiting our website!! We consider it a great privilege to introduce you to our church and its ministries.
First Baptist is an independent, fundamental, family friendly church. Sunday School, Bible Studies are just a few of the ministries we have in addition to the regular Sunday services. As you browse our website you will see many more activities our church has enjoyed recently. In all of our services and activities we strive to “edify one another” 1 Thess. 5:11, and to see others come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior.
Now that you have visited our website, we hope you will take the time to visit our church in the near future. We look forward to seeing you.

Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. First Baptist of Prudenville is here for you. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study God's Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly you! Click on map for enlarged version.
The Raymonds - Visual Communications in Missions Our ministry with ABWE is to tell God's stories by SHOWING w He is doing. “May many SEE what God has done, so they might swear allegiance to him and trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:3b Click photo above to view their Facebook page.
(Click on the photograph for Ben's Blog page.) Benjamin Everson (BMI) is known for his clear, smooth solo voice and his rich, harmonic a cappella "vocal orchestrations." He is also a talented songwriter, penning singable, likeable songs in a peaceful style. His purpose is to provide Christians with fresh, beautiful music that calms the heart and rejoices the soul.
Possessing an impressive vocal range, Ben creates entire soundscapes himself, from the lowest bass voice to the highest tenor. The arrangements are creative and sometimes complex, but as one reviewer put it, "the message of the words always shines through." Part of the reason for this is that he writes many original songs, as well as crafting new tunes to familiar hymns.
Everson is also an ordained Baptist evangelist, and serves churches with his family throughout Canada, the United States, and Mexico.
Ben's wife Amanda has been singing longer than Ben has. The oldest of 7 children in a missionary family, she has sung in churches since she was a child. Amanda has a rich alto tone that is easy to enjoy, and she and Ben blend seamlessly. She has helped with the lyric writing since the beginning of the ministry (on songs such as "I'll Pray Again"), but she has also begun to write some original pieces herself. Amanda sings This Trial.
