Your First-Time Visit

We want you to experience a great time and meet friendly people who will welcome you into the family of Open Door Baptist Church. We know that first-time visits to any church raise many questions and concerns.

Here is a quick look at some frequently asked questions that will hopefully give you a better idea of what to expect when you visit ODBC. If you do not see an answer to your question here or on any of the specific ministry pages, please contact the church office by calling 972-285-6771. Our staff would love to assist you in preparation for your visit to ODBC.

Where do I go?

Greeters are located at the front entrance to the building. These greeters will help you get to the main auditorium, help your children get to their classes, and show you where your adult class is.

How do I get a ride to church?

​We send out buses every Sunday morning throughout our community. To see if one of these buses comes through your neighborhood, 
fill out this form with your name, address and phone number. In the "comments" field, request a bus pickup.

What do I need to bring?

A Bible will help you follow along with the message and scripture reading. If you have a Bible, bring it with you. We also offer Bibles for purchase in the bookstore.

When do I need to arrive?

Sunday morning services begin promptly at 11:00 am. Sunday School classes meet at 9:45am. Plan to arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the service/class time to allow adequate time for parking and getting to the Auditorium/Bible Study class. If you have small children, this will give you enough time to show them their classes and get them checked in properly.

What should I wear?

Many people choose to wear their "Sunday best". We only ask that you be modest and appropriate in what you choose to wear to God's house.

Where do my children go?

We are equipped with clean and loving nurseries and children's classes. Our nurseries are for babies through 3 year olds. We have gone to extreme efforts to make sure your little ones will be cared for properly.

We hope you will join us soon!
