An American Baptist Church
A Welcoming and Affirming Church, A Safe Space For All

Welcome to First Baptist

We are a different kind of Baptist Church.

We are an inclusive church, welcoming and celebrating all of God’s children, and learning from one another as we follow the Way of Jesus. We are always seeking to be a place of community, healing, faith and service.

The best way to learn about us is to visit with us on a Sunday morning. The worship service plays a vital role in our spiritual formation.

First Baptist Church continues to be a vital part of the greater Worcester community, some 200 years after its founding. The earliest Baptists in the United States promoted separation of state and church. They also advocated for freedom of religious conscience and the right of a local church to be self- governing. These historic principles are at the core of who we are.

You are welcome, and you are wanted here.
