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.

The church’s Coordinating Council is watching closely the reopening plans for our community, and while technically we could try to meet in person this weekend, we are going to hold off a while longer to see how Phase 1 of reopening goes for this area. Until we meet again in-person, we will continue our online/phone worship opportunities and fellowship/Bible study opportunities.
