Welcome to


a place to belong...

We are so excited about the call confirming Rev. Tiger Pennington as our next senior pastor at First Baptist Church! He has begun a beautiful ministry here at First Baptist Church.   Be praying for Pastor Tiger and Cynthia as they continue to settle in our community.  We are eager to see where Jesus will lead us as we continue to follow Him and share His love!









We are pleased to announce we are in person for our services at 9:30 am Sunday mornings.  Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the advisement of the Franklin County Health Dept,  we will be wearing mask.  Fellowship time follows after church service and with a joyous heart we offer  Sunday school at 11:30 for all ages  Also check the events page for additional prayer time offerings available! 

With the return to in person worship in our sanctuary:

1)  Please enter and exit the church using only the North and South doors.  The main entrance at the corner will be closed.

2)  There is hand sanitizer available at each entrance.

3)  We will use every other pew format for social distancing.  

4)  We will be wearing masks with the new order from governor

5)   We WILL do Communion on the first Sunday of each month.  We will practice social distant to receive the elements.   

6)  Fellowship time is now available after service in the fellowship hall.  Chairs are placed for safe distancing but still be able to visit safely.

We will continue many ways to join in worship during this time of uncertainty.

Worship With Us!

Sunday Morning Worship @ 9:30 am

Love God.  Love Others.  Serve the World.

At First Baptist, our goal is that those who participate in our community, in whatever way, have an opportunity to grow in their relationship with God, whether that be a first encounter, a curious engagement, a deepening discipleship, or even a doubtful exploration...we want you to encounter God.  We also want you to grow in your ability to relate to others...whether strengthening family relationships, developing new friendships, or finding support and encouragement that you have never known...we want you to learn to love others and be loved.  Finally, we want you to have the opportunity to experience the blessings that come from serving others in the community.  We know that it is in serving others that we experience the full depths of God's love and blessings!


"Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it." 

[1 Corinthians 12:27]
