Our Mission is pointing generations to Jesus.
First Baptist Church is dedicated to serving the Lord and proclaiming the Gospel. For more than 180 years, this Church has been active in the community’s spiritual life. First Baptist Church has been blessed with a terrific location in Charlottesville and with excellent physical facilities. They are not for us, but to point generations to Jesus. Please know that you are welcome to visit and worship with us.
Our Church’s Biblical and theological identity is accurately described by the Baptist Faith and Message 2000. This vital document can be read in its entirety on the official Southern Baptist Convention website, or on our questions page.
