We are a Southern Baptist Church located in the northwest Chicago suburb.    We are a member of the Fox Valley Baptist Association, and the Southern Baptist Convention.

At First Baptist Church of Crystal Lake, we affirm the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.

Our mission is what Jesus Himself directed in the Bible - go unto the world and teach the gospel.  As a member of the Fox Valley Baptist Association and Southern Baptist Convention, we partner with other Southern Baptist churches to fulfill the great commission.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. - Matthew 28:19-20 NIV
