OUR MISSION

We are a body of believers united in Christ to proclaim, live, love and serve according to God’s Word.

OUR VISION

God calls us to be an inviting church, extending a welcome to all who will open their hearts to the worship and teachings of Jesus Christ. We are also called to come together faithfully in worship and fellowship. As disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ, we desire to grow in our faith and use our spiritual gifts to minister in our church, our community and throughout the world.

OUR STRUCTURE

We operate under the traditional Baptist structure with a Council of Deacons, a Board of Trustees, a Board of Missions, and a Board of Christian Education. In addition there are several committees for the various other ministries of the church. A deacon serves on each board and committee.

OUR HISTORY

Although erected in 1800 as the First Meeting House in the village, the church was officially founded as First Baptist Church of Hoosick Falls in 1847. The original church cemetery still remains on the property; we have a long and very rich history.
