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.

Second Sunday after Epiphany
Virtual Church – Online
Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon on “Call and Response“
Scriptures include: 1 Samuel 3:1-20 and John 1:43-51
The work of God and God Incarnate in this world is to call humans into relationship. From the temple room of a little boy, to the little nowhere town of Nazareth, God’s in the business of calling us into a relationship of trust, a journey of faithfulness, and an affirmative response of discipleship.
This year’s ELC Christmas pageant is virtual (of course) and it’s called “Christmas through a Child’s Eyes.” Join us December 23rd online!
Advent and Christmas at First Baptist are happening in new ways this season – join us!
