Visitors

Welcome to the First Baptist website!

We are thrilled to provide this window into our warm, welcoming, and wonderful congregation! Here at The First Baptist Church of the City of Washington, DC we have a long history dating back to 1802. However, we are more than an historic church. We are also a vibrant community of faith that is actively following the Spirit’s leadership in engaging our community and our world. We welcome diverse worshipers of all backgrounds and identities from across the Washington Region and the world on a weekly basis. We believe that God calls us to have a loving presence in this international city, sharing Christ’s unconditional welcome to all people, and engaging in worship, study, service, stewardship, and fellowship as Christian disciples in community.

The sections on the site are designed to help you get better acquainted with our congregation in its corporate life. You will learn a lot from visiting our site. It is our hope that in addition to learning about our church you will find inspiration, encouragement, guidance and answers to your questions.

Of course, you will not discover everything there is to know about us from visiting our website. Ultimately, we hope that as opportunities permit, you will be able to visit our church in person. This website is no substitute for the warm handshakes and hugs, delicious pastries and hot coffee, and the stirring prayers, praise, and proclamation that can only be experienced in the company of the gathered community. But until that time comes, please make yourself at home here, and visit with us again and again!

With the love of Christ,

The Members of First Baptist Church
