We are a gathered community for the purposes of proclaiming the good news of Jesus to ALL

We believe that Jesus is the hero of the Bible.  From Genesis to Revelation, the whole of Scripture is about God’s great love and mercy as found in Jesus Christ.  The Church is the gathered people of God who are His workmanship created unto God works which glorify Him.  For More on what we believe click below…

Our History

First Baptist Church of Gahanna was established on February 11, 1963 for the purpose of holding regular devotional and public worship; developing Christian fellowship through personal growth in grace and knowledge of Christ among its members for the glorification of His precious name; proclaiming the gospel message and urging its personal acceptance by those without the Savior, Jesus Christ; and cooperating heartily by prayer, gifts, and service in carrying out the Great Commission of the Lord Jesus Christ as recorded in Matthew 28:19-20, Mark 16:15 and Acts 1:8
Sunday Nights 5:30 to 7:00PM

     Awana is a worldwide, non-denominational youth ministry that is over 50 years old. The name Awana is derived from the key Bible verse
(2 Timothy 2:15), and stands for Approved Workmen Are Not Ashamed. 
Its goal is to introduce children to salvation through Jesus Christ and encourage their growth in the Lord through Bible memory verses. Awana strives to do this in an exciting and fun-filled atmosphere.  Awana is open to all children in the community, and though it is in no way required that you attend our church, your entire family is always welcome here.


     Every Cubbie Awana night activity is structured around the Bible lesson for the week. Their nights start with a quiet “coming in time” craft. Every club night includes a Bible story, workbook time to recite the week’s verse, awards and a snack time. Also, Cubbies have their own game time geared to their age group.  Parents should help their Cubbie come prepared to recite their verse for that week.


Sparks and T&T

     Sparks and T&T each have their own handbook, game time, and award time each club night. All of these groups are combined for an entertaining story time.  The Bible message is an important focus of the night, and we often have a great deal of fun together in this segment as well.  These clubbers work on their handbooks at their own pace, and should come prepared from home ready to recite their memorized verses each week.


     Awards are an important part of Awana. By learning Bible verses (completing sections of their handbooks), each club earns particular awards. Cubbies earn patches for their uniforms. Sparks earn red, green, and blue jewels for their uniform crowns. T&T clubbers earn achievement seals for their award badges.

    Sparks and T&T clubbers also earn 1 Awana dollar for each completed section.  Awana dollars are play money that buy real toys twice a year at the Awana store. Cubbies are given 10-15 dollars to spend at the store as well.

     There are also book awards which are ribbons or trophies for completing entire books and further awards for other achievements. These big awards are given in our year-end awards ceremony.  Remember to finish a book in a club year, the Spark and T&T clubber should average no less than 2-3 sections per week. Cubbies need only do one section per week.


Awana Special Events

 Every year we have special planned events, including a Giant Banana Split night, a  Christmas party which may include an informal nativity play, the Awana Grand Prix pinewood derby race in Feb., and the Carnival/ Awards night for the last club night. Often other special events are planned during the year as well.
