The First Baptist Church of Niles is represented by a congregation of Bible believing Christians, who gather together, to give praise to the Almighty God, and to learn of His ways through Biblical teachings.

Our goal is to create a diverse fellowship that will glorify God through changed lives.


The church has been known in the community as a "friendly church". Whether you are a first time visitor, or a long-time member, you can be expected to be greeted warmly upon entering the church. We provide a "Country Church" atmosphere in an urban environment.

We are a multi-generational, multi-ethnic congregation.  

Music in the church consists, of congregational singing of hymns combined with more contemporary Christian music.  Much of the music is from hymnals, with piano and organ accompaniment. Music specials may use pre-recorded accompaniment.


We believe that the Christian lifestyle is not confined to the Sunday service, and provide opportunities for additional advancement of the Christian learning  and fellowship.
