NEW! You can now make contributions to First Baptist Church online today!
Good Day! Thank you for visiting the
First Baptist Church website!
Greetings in the name of the Lord! Welcome to the online campus of First Baptist Church. Whether your are already a member of this congregation or your are considering making First Baptist Church your church home or you just found us while surfing the web, we welcome you here.
Here you will find information concerning our historic church and its ministries. We hope you find your time spent here a blessing. Our church is one of the oldest congregations in the area, founded in 1833 (we are about to celebrate 182 years of existence), is a warm and loving church. We were birthed following tragic circumstances at what was then an integrated worship, but look at what the Lord has done.
We've recently completed an extensive restoration of our beautiful sanctuary. Come by and take a look! We are also open to the community for weddings and we would love to be your place of service for Christian marriages.
If you are considering a new place of worship or a relocation to our area, we would love to have you be our guest. We especially welcome students from Kentucky State University and we hope you will make our church your church home during your college matriculation. We have bus service directly from KSU to our campus every Sunday morning. Just call us for more details.
When you visit our church, you will find:
