FBC Columbia

Bro Vann Cooley

Welcome to our church website.  I hope you can find everything you need here to better help you understand the ministries our church offers. I came to FBC Columbia as Pastor after serving in Student Ministry for 25 years.  This is a new role for me and I am looking forward to seeing how God uses me AND His Church to accomplish His purpose. I was born in Columbia, and I believe in and understand small town life.  I love the fact that all of its members are able to travel through life together.  This includes celebrating victories, supporting each other during losses, and sharing everyday life.  I came to know Jesus in a small-town church, and it is this same church that gave me my first official role as a minister.  I say official because I believe we are all ministers of Christ, some of us are just fortunate enough to have the vocational calling to serve our Lord.  I believe that we serve a jealous God.  He expects our full-time devotion to Him – this includes daily devotionals, church attendance, and tithe.  To the fullest of my capabilities, I try to lead my family under the same principles. My wife, Shera, and I have been married almost 30 years.  She is my partner not only in life, but in ministry.  We have five beautiful daughters, four sons-in-law, and three grandsons.  As parents, our desire is that our daughters and their families will love and serve the Lord all the days of their lives. I am excited about serving with you here in Columbia.
If you ever need me, please know my door is open and I am here for you.

First Baptist Columbia is a church seeking to love and serve Jesus by loving and serving our wider community.
