Office Hours


The First Baptist Church of Lompoc is one of the oldest churches in town, dating back to the 1800s. When the previous pastor retired in Nov 2011, the congregation invited the Rev. Nelson to do pulpit supply. So, at first he just drove up to Lompoc on Sundays for December of 2011 and January and February of 2012. At that point the church invited him to stay on as Interim Pastor, but gave him the title "Acting Pastor," which allowed him to be considered for the role of Pastor. (Normally Interim Ministers are not allowed to apply for the "permanent" position.) In May 2013, the church voted to accept him as the regular Pastor. It is a part-time position in a small but growing congregation. Pastor Bill teaches a Wed night Bible Study (currently studying the NT book of Revelation), leads a Sat night prayer meeting, teaches an adult education Sunday School class (currently studying Proverbs), and preaches on Sun morning during the worship service. The First Baptist Church is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA. All are welcome to attend. Here is a list of services:

Wednesday Bible Study: 6:30 PM

Saturday Prayer Meeting: 4:00 PM

Adult Education: Sunday 9:30 AM

Worship Service: Sunday 11:00 AM
