WELCOMING YOU HOME

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH is many things. Architecturally, it is a beautiful landmark set in the center of a picturesque, bustling town. Historically, it stands as one of the oldest Baptist congregations in North Carolina with roots dating back to the 1700’s. Personally, it is a unique, diverse collection of individuals from many backgrounds and beliefs. Practically, it is a source of help and hope to individuals in our city, state, region, and many places around the world. Spiritually, we are brothers and sisters united in Christ, dedicated to using our unique talents and abilities to further His Kingdom.

ABOUT OUR CHURCH

OUR VISION:

First we love. 

OUR MISSION:

First, we seek to love God, others, then self, according to the model
of Christ.

PARTNERING WITH FAMILIES

We provide a safe, loving environment that partners with families as we work together to guide children and teens to notice God at work in their lives and to respond to the ways that God calls each of them.

MINISTRIES

We participate in local ministries  through Religious Community Services, Habitat for Humanity, Coastal Women's Shelter, and the Teddy Bear Workshop. Our national mission efforts are through the NC Baptist Men and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.

LOOKING AHEAD

"So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."

Isaiah 41:10
