The spreading of the gospel through the Media Ministry is done by several different means. These include Sound Operations, Television, Radio, Internet, Printing and Publications. Additionally, we utilize in-house capabilities to get information out through our Digital Information System and enhance the spirit of worship with our Video Projections Operation.
The Media Library is another large part of our outreach. Our library has over 16,000 printed books, CD (audio) books and DVDs available for people of all ages and interests to check out. Library resources, in print, audio and video format are also available for teaching and discipleship as well as entertainment.

The television broadcasts of First Baptist Church are Closed Caption every week. This service was made available to allow hearing impaired viewers to worship with our congregation.
If you want to use the Closed Caption feature, simply follow these steps with your television on and tuned to a program that provides captioning, such as ours:
- Most television remotes will have a "caption" or "cc" button.
If you have one of these buttons, simply push it until "CC1" appears on your television screen.
- If your remote doesn't have the caption button, then go to your television menu.
- You will find an option that has a "Screen", "Display", or "Audio" option.
- In these options, you will have the ability to turn on captions all the time or only during MUTE. For convenience, you will want to select only the CC1 always on option to receive our signal.
If you have further questions or difficulties in setting up your television set, please give us a call at 432.683.0608 and we will assist you as best as possible.
