Our Mission

The Congregation of First Baptist Church, led by the Holy Spirit,

covenants to worship Almighty God and to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Consistent with the Great Commission, we will share our spiritual gifts beyond our doors with enthusiasm, generosity, and grace. 

Our Vision

Alongside the community of faith in Martinsville and Henry County, we seek to serve and to love our neighbors of all ages – from the smallest children to the most seasoned adults – with care and attention to physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, just as Jesus did in his ministry.

Fourth Sunday in Lent

Virtual Church – Online

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach

Scriptures include: 1 Samuel 16:1-3 and Psalm 23

Sometimes when we hear God speak, we act a little like Samuel did – we protest and ask questions of God’s plan. We especially ask about it when the plan seems so unusual to our ideas of grandeur. But God has always used the outcasts and the last and least. Samuel learned that as he anointed the youngest son of Jesse. We learn that when we realize that our ideas about what faith should be aren’t always in line with what God has in mind about faith.
