Begun as a church plant in 1950 and established in 1951, First Baptist Church has been reaching the lost for Christ and building up the saints in and around Burlington, KS for 70 years. In cooperation with the Southern Baptist Convention, our influence is now world-wide by supporting missionaries throughout the world sharing the gift of salvation with others.
Our love for the Lord, motivates us to reach out to folks of any age, any background, race or gender. Our leaders are those who love the Lord and have a desire to reach and teach others for Christ.
Our ministries and activities are multiple and varied to meet the needs of one and all. They are for the purpose of promoting biblical training, encouraging spiritual growth and providing fellowship with one another. We believe that it is important to share the gospel with others and being a witness in our daily lives, to encourage one another and build each other up in the faith.
Our intention through this website is to inform, enlighten, direct and educate the viewer as to who we are, what we do and why we are here.
