Dr. Brent TaylorMeet Our Pastor

My greatest desire as a pastor is for you to experience a genuine relationship with God. During our time of study together, I want to help you understand the Bible better. I want all that we do on Sunday to make a difference in your life throughout the week.

I love hearing people say that even though we're a large congregation, First Baptist Carrollton has the feeling of a small community. My hope is that you'd agree after you visit with us. When you do attend, please meet me at the front of the Worship Center after the service. I'd love to meet you.

The Best is yet to come!
