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.
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.

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach “A Parade of Change.”
Scriptures include: Psalm 118: 1-2, 19-29 and Matthew 21:1-11
Jesus enters Jerusalem in our familiar story of the triumphal entry. But he does so in a way no one is expecting at the time – he’s not on a steed, but a donkey. He’s not bearing weapons, but comes in peace. He’s not coming as a powerful king in the traditional sense; he’s coming as a servant-leader. This parade is not what everyone thinks it is – and it’s bringing about serious changes to the understanding of who God is and who God’s people are called to be. I wonder – in a season where we too are in the midst of changing all we understand about life, ministry, and connectedness, what this parade of change has to teach us anew.
Join us for a Shared Holy Week Experience with Sister Churches Starling Avenue Baptist and Chatham Heights Baptist!
We enter into week two of our collective choice to distance ourselves physically from one another with renewed energy to find ways to continue our corporate worship of God, our study of scripture, our shared prayer, and our service to and love of our neighbors.
Let the world know that we are the church, and we are not closed!
