Welcome to FBCDQ - First Baptist Church of DuQuoin, Illinois

We believe that God has called us to announce his love to this world. Through our lives, jobs, families circles and friendships God has uniquely placed in our lives, we are to commit our lives to demonstrating God's immeasurable love as best as we can. When Jesus preached to the crowds in the Book of Luke, he was quick to say that we are called to love those who are hard to love - not just the ones that love you in return. FBCDQ (First Baptist Church of Du Quoin) exists to do just that - express God's unending love and mercy to those that need it the most. Jesus said it best in Luke 6:35-38: 

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you.

  • New to FBCDQ? 

    Welcome! It is a real joy for us to meet newcomers and to tell you about all the good things God is doing in our church family. For over thirty years now it has been our mission to "lead people in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ." That means that no matter where you've come from and where you are on your spiritual journey, we want to come alongside to inspire, equip and encourage you to live out a life that will bring glory to God and be a blessing to the world.


  • Small Group Bible Study

    Our Small Group Bible Study is the heart of our church.  We believe that if we are not demonstrating Christ's love in our most comfortable environment, it will be impossible to love God and others with our whole lives. Sincerity, openness and respect help lead our groups, along with leaders who have risen and been established by God through the elders of our church. We highly encourage everyone who calls First Baptist Church Du Quoin (FBCDQ)  their home to be involved in a home group in their local neighborhood.


  • Sunday Morning

    Our Sunday morning services provide an opportunity to bring all of our Community Groups together and share in a time of celebration of what God is doing in our lives. Because each of our daily routines are so different, our Sunday services are a special time to bring us all together and tell stories and struggles to the entire August church so we can worship God and pray to Him for our communities.

    Service Time: Sunday Mornings, at 8:00 am & 10:15 am.

    Location: 104 N. Washington St, Du Quoin, IL 62832

  • Give to FBCDQ

    We believe that financial giving is a way God has called us to worship Him. Some churches tend to be shy in asking for donations to keep ministry going. We believe in absolute transparency with our finances, understanding that people in the past tend to second guess where their money goes when they give it to a church. We believe that having you see our spending will encourage you to give more, and make more of an impact in this world for the gospel. 


  • Youth Ministry

    We are a growing church, with tons of kids. We take the teaching of God's word and love to kids as importantly as we do for the adults in our church. Check out the links below to get more info about our offerings for kids in different stages of life.
