Dear Friends,

Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Fairmont, West Virginia.
I am pleased you are visiting with us today, and I pray that you will find the content of this page helpful and informative.

First Baptist Church is a caring, serving, community of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ. We proclaim his new life to the world. We assist Christians in discovering and using their unique gifts for service to our brothers and sisters locally, nationally, and internationally, to the Glory of God.

You are cordially invited to join us in worship this Sunday!

FBC Covenant
We, the members of the First Baptist Church, are people on a journey of faith. By God's grace we are experiencing His love through Jesus Christ and by the influence of His Spirit we give ourselves up to Him. So do we now solemnly covenant with each other that God enabling us, we will walk together with brotherly love; that we will exercise Christian care and watchfulness over each other; that we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor omit the great duty of prayer both for ourselves and others, that we will endeavor to bring up those under our care in the knowledge and service of our God; that we will maintain a faithful evangelical ministry among ourselves, in the support of our neighbors in need and the spread of the gospel over the earth. We covenant together to nurture this church as a community of faith and as an instrument for reconciliation in the world: by worship, by Christian education, by the dedication of our personal and material resources, and by all the other ways we express the significance of our lives with God and one another believing that we are participants in Godís kingdom on earth.
Adopted 1983

Our denomination is the American Baptist Churches, USA. And we are a member church of the Fairmont Association and of the West Virginia Baptist Convention. We uphold the importance of the "priesthood of believers." We believe that all Christians—laypersons and clergy— have special callings to be ministers for Jesus Christ. We care about one another and we serve others in mission.

If you are looking for a church home, come and worship with us. You will find a warm welcoming atmosphere; several opportunities for worship and Bible study; people who are active in their church and in their communities; and many ways you can be of service to others.
