First Baptist of St. Albans

We at First Baptist are from all sorts of backgrounds and are at every possible stage of life. We are kids, students, adults, and seniors. Some of us are just starting our Christian walk, while others have known Christ for decades. Each of us is different, but we share three purposes: to worship God and honor him in every aspect of our church and personal lives, to help others know how they can have a relationship with God, and to help each other become the compassionate, faithful people God wants us to be.
