Welcome Visitors!

A Message from Dr. Dan

Greetings! We prayed you’d come!


FBC is an historic church with a narrative going back to 1867, when 13 founders gathered on September 29 to organize what would become First Baptist Church of Lancaster. One member has said “although the physical appearance of the church has changed since that day, the people are still as friendly as they’ve ever been. That was true way back when, and it’s true now!” We believe God has sustained the people, and the people have sustained this church!


We hope you will come celebrate in a place where everyone matters to us because everyone matters to God!!
