Who We Are

The First Baptist Church in America has been on College Hill in downtown Providence since 1638, sharing the good news, with Christ-centered enthusiasm, biblical preaching, dynamic caring ministries, advocating the separate and complementary relationship between church and state, and the vitality of traditional worship. What Roger Williams established is still worth standing for.

Our Services

What are services like?
After the organ or piano prelude, the service begins with a time of announcements and greeting. There are scripture readings, anthems by the choir, congregational hymn singing, prayers, and a sermon based on the readings. The service ends with a postlude and coffee and pastries in Fellowship Hall.

What is the community like?
The church community is small and friendly. There is a mix of older folks and young families. College students are often in attendance. Two spirituality groups meet during the week. Discussions at the Sunday Forum include Bible study, environmental issues, poverty and missions in Providence and around the world, spiritual growth, and personal stories.

What if I'm not a Christian?
You are welcome. Christianity is a journey and we are all at different places.
