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 sermon entitled, “Faithful Change”
Scriptures include: Jeremiah 31:27-34 and John 8:31-36
We commemorate the Reformation not because Martin Luther and other reformers got everything perfectly right in 1517. We remember these moments to recognize that though our God is unchanging, God’s work is ever-changing in this world. “Semper Reformanda” means “always reforming” and being God’s people means we are always about the work of faithful change on behalf of God’s kingdom. What will that look like at the end of 2020 and the start of a new year?
