Our Church History

      First Baptist Church goes back a long way with lots of interesting history. The church began in 1858 and has since changed location, buildings, pastors, and members numerous times over again. I hope to have captured most of that history here.


      This page is still undergoing construction. However, feel free to navigate through the first few sets of years by clicking a date on the timeline above. Please check back often for added information on later dates.


      My sources seem endless between the church and Taylor County's Historical Society. Please forgive me for the time that it takes me to read over and consolidate all of my information. If you have anything you would like to personally add to this history, you can do so two ways. First, you may submit digital items online by clicking here. Second, you can catch me at church where I can make copies of photos or written material so that you can hang on to your originals. I really appreciate any information you can provide me with!
