Who We Are
First Baptist Church, Martinsville is a community of faith committed to Christ and his call to love God and one another. We gather to worship, study, eat, pray, celebrate, mourn, share our stories and bless our community, all with the conviction that God has called us together to share in this journey of faith, hope, and love.
Established in 1884,
our congregation strikes a unique chord in the Baptist tradition. We value ancient Christian practices that inform our present faith and mission. Liturgical worship is common and lectionary preaching is typical, but you will also find that life at First Baptist is not stuck in the past. Instead, we strive continually to discover the hope-filled future that God invites us to. So please look around, visit with us a while, and consider whether God might be inviting you to share your journey with us.
At First Baptist, we have a great family atmosphere, great educational programs, a superb Early Learning Center facility, a talented choir, and activities in missions and ministry.
First Baptist is also currently growing its ministry among people of all ages, and we would love to make you a part of these new and exciting avenues for faith growth and ministry to the community.
The doors of our church fellowship are always open. This is an exciting time to be a part of all God is doing at our church!
Rev. Libby M. Grammer, Senior Pastor
