First Baptist Church is one of the oldest Baptist churches in Winnsboro and has served as a starter church for many of the local Baptist Churches in our area. In 1858 a one-half acre lot was purchased on the corner of Vanderhorst and Washington Streets. A building was completed after the War Between the States. Furman University President, Dr. J. C. Furman, preached the first sermon. We as a church want to be able to reach out to persons in our community and the web is one way to do so.
Our Mission is: The advancement and promotion of the worship of God through the reading and study of the Bible as the word of God; The teaching and preaching of the gospel of our Lord and Savior; Conducting regular services of worship for the spiritual training, development and benefit of each member: The winning of souls for Christ.
We as a Church have invested in our future,our children by trying new programs and services. We reciently started an AWANA program to reach the youth of the area. Our older Youth program has been an ongoing service.Every January we sponsor a Disciple Now weekend for the area youth and average over 150 youth in attendance.
We also offer GA's and Youth on Missions. [Read More
