Welcome to the online home for the First Baptist Church of Bristol, VA. We're glad that your're here and would love for you to join us in person. If you do, you'll find people who are warm, friendly, and genuinely seeking to better follow God and love their neighbor. I know what it's like to be looking for a new church home. It can be scary and intimidating.
I was recently called as the Senior Pastor of this church. My family and I left behind a wonderful church and community. It was a step of faith for us, but here's how I knew FBC Bristol was the place for me - When I me the congregation, I saw people with outstretched hands and open doors to reach those around them. I saw people with pride and deep love for their community and their church. I saw people who take seriously the call that Jesus has placed on each of their lives and the call that Jesus has for their church. I saw people who truly love and care for one another, people who are invested in doing life together. And when I saw all of that, I knew that God was calling me to a new church home. If you're looking for a warm and loving congregation, a church that believes God is big enough to handle your questions and will support you as your work out your faith, a place that will remind you that no matter where you've been or what you've done God loves you, then FBC Bristol might just be the place for you. We'd love for you to join Sunday morning and Wednesday night. I think you'll be glad that you did.
Grace and Peace,
