About us - FAQ's
Welcome to the Escalon First Baptist Church website!
We are a family of believers in Jesus who offer freely to all what we have received from God: love, acceptance, forgiveness, welcome and grace. You won’t find anyone here pretending to be flawless or having all the answers. We don’t claim that we do it right all the time, nor do we pretend to be the “perfect church.” The very best we can do is point toward the One who loved us enough to become our substitute sacrifice and die in our place. In return He gives us a new life and the grace to follow Him. Together we covenant to be an authentic place to believe, to belong, and to become. If you haven't had the chance to join us for a Sunday service, we would love to see you there! We promise you a warm welcome as a guest of our church family. If you have any questions about our church please feel free to email us by clicking here or call the church office at (209) 838-3213.

What do I wear?
No tie - no problem! While some folks come to church dressed in their 'Sunday best', many come dressed casually. We believe that God cares far more about your heart than your wardrobe.
Do I need to bring anything with me?
Our preaching and teaching is based on the Bible. If you have a Bible, great! Bring it along. It will help you to follow along during the worship service and during Bible study. If not, or if you forget to bring yours, there are Bibles available for your use.
What about child care?
We know that quality care for your children is of the utmost importance to parents when they visit Escalon First Baptist. Our goal is to provide experienced, loving care for your little ones. Nursery care is provided during our services for infants through preschool age children. This caring, comfortable atmosphere helps show children at the earliest ages that church is a good place to be.
Sunday School - Bible classes for all ages
Sunday morning's begin at 9:15 AM with an hour-long Sunday School class for adults. At 10:30, during our worship service, children are invited to Children’s Church -- a worship experience focused on children and building their understanding of the Bible and promoting a meaningful relationship with God.
