Building Community
In our neighborhoods and to the ends of the earth.

Brother Vann Cooley

Welcome to our church website.  I hope you can find everything you need here to better help you understand the ministries our church offers.

I came to FBC Columbia as Pastor after serving in Student Ministry for 25 years.  This is a new role for me and I am looking forward to seeing how God uses me AND His Church to accomplish His purpose.

I was born in Columbia, and I believe in and understand small town life.  I love the fact that all of its members are able to travel through life together.  This includes celebrating victories, supporting each other during losses, and sharing everyday life.  I came to know Jesus in a small-town church, and it is this same church that gave me my first official role as a minister.  I say official because I believe we are all ministers of Christ, some of us are just fortunate enough to have the vocational calling to serve our Lord.  I believe that we serve a jealous God.  He expects our full-time devotion to Him – this includes daily devotionals, church attendance, and tithe.  To the fullest of my capabilities, I try to lead my family under the same principles.

My wife, Shera, and I have been married almost 30 years.  She is my partner not only in life, but in ministry.  We have five beautiful daughters, four sons-in-law, and three grandsons.  As parents, our desire is that our daughters and their families will love and serve the Lord all the days of their lives.

I am excited about serving with you here in Columbia.  If you ever need me, please know my door is open and I am here for you.

Senior Delight

Senior Delight Ministry.
Our Senior Delights ministry started three years ago at First Baptist for our senior adults.  A dedicated team provides sweet fellowship, delicious meals, beautiful decorations as well as entertainment for our seniors each month.  This team funds all of this ministry with very little cost to First Baptist. The reward for this ministry are the smiles received.

Our women’s ministry exists to “Help as many people as possible become totally committed to Jesus Christ.”


We welcome visitors and would love to have you join us.
