At First Baptist Church of Panama City, we are passionate about making disciples that make disciples.  We want to teach the body of believers at FBCPC to think and act like Christ. We provide opportunities for people to engage with the Bible, learning more about who they are in Christ, leading them to service and a greater love for God and for others.

Our discipleship opportunities take place throughout the week on a variety of subjects to help you navigate through life.  Classes are open to anyone who wishes to attend. Membership is not required, and workbook cost should never prevent someone from participating in a class. We strongly encourage you to find a class whether you are just beginning your discipleship journey or you need some encouragement and strengthen along your way.

“Fight Back with Joy” by Margaret Feinberg

(Begins Tuesday, April 23rd)  Joy is stamped on coffee mugs, sewn onto decorative pillows—even displayed on dish soap. But what if there’s a deeper power and purpose to this mighty virtue? Through vulnerable storytelling, a difficult diagnosis, and a good dose of humor, Margaret Feinberg reveals how joy is more than whimsy. It’s the weapon you can use to fight life’s battles. No matter what your circumstances, you can practice defiant joy. When you do, you will embrace a life that’s richer and fuller than you’ve ever known before—a life radiant with joy.

Workbook: $13


Summer Discipleship is May 8 - June 26


The Christian Life as Christ Intended

Pastor & Ministerial Staff

6:00-7:15 PM

Worship Center

Every week, we will be digging a little deeper into different aspects of the Christian life. We will all meet together in the worship center for the first session then break into small groups for all following sessions. Each session will be led by a different member of our ministerial staff on a different component of life as Christ intended.

Assurance of Salvation - Pastor Conner

We all seek assurance concerning the things that frighten us the most. Accordingly, the assurance we need the most is the assurance of salvation.  Is it possible? How can you know? In this session, we will discuss the eternal security of the believer and the hope that is available to us.

Prayer - Andy Lambert

Praying from God's Word changes everything!  In this session, members will learn how to revitalize their prayer life by using the Bible as a springboard into prayer.  Furthermore, using this simple approach will allow individuals to know their heavenly Father better than ever before.  All of us struggle with prayer -- let's work on it together!

Missions - Hugh Redmon

We, as Christians, use words like “missions” all the time, but what does that really mean? Are missions strictly evangelism, or can they include other activities by the church that seek to share the love and message of Jesus? In this session, we will explore what all does fall into the category of missions and why they are so important.

Discipleship - David Hecht

Discipleship is the God-ordained process by which a lost, unregenerate person is born-again, transformed, and conformed to the image of Jesus Christ. In this session, we will study the great commission, characteristics of a disciple, and a biblical process for making disciples that will inspire you to both “be a disciple” and to “make disciples.”

Sunday School - David Flatt

Why is Bible Study so important? The Bible is the source of our knowledge of God and His will for our lives. In this session, we will look into Acts to see how vital it was to the early Church and how vital it is to us now.

Evangelism - Rick McClung

In this session, we will be looking at a story in the Book of Acts that may be the best example of Biblical evangelism. We will see how the Lord orchestrates various circumstances in our everyday lives and leads His people to join Him in the greatest joy of the Christian experience - leading another person to saving faith in Jesus Christ!!
