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

Eleventh Sunday after Pentecost

In-Person and Virtual Church – Online

Rev. Dr. Libby Grammer will preach a sermon entitled “Never Underestimate the Spiritual Power of a Nap & a Snack”

Scriptures include: 1 Kings 19:4-8

We are a busy, overworked culture. We are always looking for the next thing we *have* to do. But Elijah’s encounter with God reminds us that sometimes burnout is best cured by good rest, good food, and intentional work toward wholeness with good help. If life has broken you with depression, loneliness, or hopelessness, God says to us: stop, rest, get the help you need.
