The First Baptist Church has a long heritage of faithful service to the Kingdom of God in St. Joseph, MO. We are a conservative-minded congregation with ties to the St. Joseph Baptist Association, the Missouri Baptist Convention, and the Southern Baptist Convention.

​First Baptist Church isn’t about a place—it’s about a family. We are a family of believers coming together to learn, grow, get connected with other believers, and to bring the love of Christ to our city.

​We are part of the Southern Baptist tradition and unashamedly believe, teach, and practice the truth of God’s Word.
