About Our Church

Founded in 1700's
First Baptist Church

Since our founding in the 1700s, First Baptist Church has been an enduring presence in downtown Winchester—in fact, our Congregation traces its roots to the very beginnings of the Baptist denomination in the Shenandoah Valley. We look forward to the future with hope, knowing that God has more work for us to do. Learn more about our history.

First Baptist Church belongs to the Shenandoah Baptist Association and the Baptist General Association of Virginia. Our missions giving is through the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship World Mission Plan. Our ministers are active in the Downtown Clergy Fellowship of Winchester.
