About Our Church

Our Background

First Baptist Bible Church is an Evangelical, independent Baptist church comprised church members of both Lebanese and foreign nationalities. We are an active part of the Fellowship of Independent Churches in Lebanon and in fellowship with numerous churches in this association across the country.

Our History

Our church began in 1956 as an American Baptist mission in downtown Beirut. As the church grew, leadership passed to the oversight of our first Lebanese pastor, Victor Sadaka. When Victor went to be with the Lord, his son Richard Sadaka became our lead pastor.

Our Worship

Our worship style is traditional and hymnal based. We use the voices of our congregants – along with piano and occasionally other classical instrument accompaniment – to worship the Lord.

Our Pastor

Our pastor is Dr. Richard Sadaka. A native of Lebanon, he is also a graduate of Rice University (Texas, USA) and holds his doctorate from there.
