About Us

Founded in 1745, the First Baptist Church in the City of New York has faithfully preached Christ and his gospel in the heart of Manhattan for over 250 years. The work of the gospel transcends race and ethnicity (Ephesians 2.11–22), and we are grateful that God has brought people from many nations to be part of First Baptist Church, a visible foreshadowing of the day when people from "every tribe and language and people and nation" will sing praises to the Lamb who was slain (Rev 5.9).
