Who We Are
We are a church located in Wilmington, Delaware.
Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and the advancement of the Christian faith, to propagate the gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ into our local community, and the uttermost parts of the world, First State Baptist Church of Wilmington DE was formed in the fourth month, on the second day in the year of our Lord two thousand and seventeen.
We exist first to bring glory to God, to exalt His word, to equip His children for the work of the ministry, and to reach the lost with the blessed hope, “the saving gospel of Jesus Christ”
