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.

Join us for a Service of Worship

Third Sunday of Easter

Virtual Church – Online

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon on “Change is Hard

Scriptures include: Acts 3:12-29 and 1 John 3:1-7

We have been adopted as God’s children, 1 John tells us. But it’s hard to recognize our new selves, much less have the rest of the world recognize how different we are as we are transformed into the likeness of Christ. And we still experience our own brokenness, yet God’s claim on our souls says we’re forgiven and made whole. Growing in faith may be a hard process, but the payoff is worth it. And what does that look like in community? Check out Acts.
