The First Baptist Church was established in 1816 when six families met in a home next to “the falls” to hear the preaching of a Baptist minister. It is said that this was the first time a Baptist had ever “delivered a discourse in Hampton Falls!” Since then, the church has continued to proclaim the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The church has grown from its roots as a small town community church. Presently, our church community draws regular attenders from over 30 towns, as many as 30 miles away. The church remains committed to intentionally proclaim the truths revealed to us in the Bible in order that Jesus Christ may be glorified in everything!
We believe that the purpose of the church is as stated in Ephesians 4: “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that that the body of Christ may be built up, until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.”
To that end, our ministry is organized around four areas: Worship, Instruction, Fellowship, and Evangelism.
We welcome you to come and worship with us as we continue to proclaim Christ to the seacoast of New Hampshire.
