Our history

In the year of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 1869, some faithful followers saw a need to worship together. The members found a suitable house on what is now Camp and Dills Bluff Roads. The Ferguson family, owners of the house, allowed it to be used for worship services. The first shepherd to guide First Baptist Church was Reverend Green, followed by the Reverends Frayer, Briton, Weston, Whaley, Grant, Alex White, Jack Dash, Bernard J. Gadsden, Sr. and presently Charlie L. Murray, Jr., The members of this church welcome you today. It is our desire to be friendly people, giving a positive Christian witness in the spirit of worship.
