First Baptist Church exists to love and serve God and our neighbors and share the good news of lives transformed through Jesus Christ.
While we lost our historic church building from a lightning strike, our church continues to live on. Since 2018, First Baptist Church has been sharing space with the First Parish Congregational Church on Church Street. Immediately after the fire, we began worshipping in their Chapel every Sunday at 10:00 am. We were able to continue our mission: Inviting others to experience Christ, that they will come to Him as they are and be transformed by His love.
And then the world was attacked by COVID, and everything changed.
But neither the fire nor COVID could keep us down. We all learned how to Zoom!
Now it's Springtime, 2021, and we are outdoors and loving it! We are here to fulfill our purpose: Love. Share. Serve.
Until the construction starts on the new building (more info to come this summer…), we are meeting outside (weather permitting) on the church property at 11:00 am and doing Zoom meetings at 9:00 am for those who prefer church from the comfort of their home.
Come join us! You'll see the big red tents, hear the music, and see friendly faces praising God and loving each other.
Welcome to First Baptist Church of Wakefield!
