First we love

We welcome you to First Baptist Church!

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 1700s. 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.
