Our Story

History: Our Roots

The history of First Baptist Church is not just about buildings property, and programs. It isn't just about our pastors, though we've been blessed with good "shepherds." It is about people - people from all walks of life, ordinary people who strive to do extraordinary things.  It is about generations of people who serve our Lord and this church with their God-given talents - deacons, Sunday school teachers, musicians, committee members, ushers, cooks, nursery workers, custodians - all striving to do their very best.

For over 135 years, First Baptist Church of Franklinton has existed to be the church for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  We have attempted to be a beacon of light in a n ever-darkening world that is quite different from the world of our forefathers knew, a world that is smaller due to tremendous technical changes that exist today.

In that ever-changing and frightening world, we have an anchor who assures us He will always be with us.
