Who We Are

Here at First Baptist Church we are a family – a family of brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ.

Everything that we seek to do flows out of the fact that we have been given radical grace from God.

Our community seeks to continue to connect to God through worship, to become disciples of Jesus Christ, and to respond to the grace that God has given us by launching out into the world and sharing the same grace and love that we have found.

We are diverse in age, and we count that as a real strength to have many generations of our family together from young to not so young.

Many people find our children and youth programs to be strong and formative in some of the most important years in one’s life.

Because our congregation has existed for over 160 years we have a wealth of history and experience that informs us, but like many in Eastern North Carolina we also have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and we are always excited to see what new thing God might be calling us to.
