First Baptist Church is celebrating 170 years this year. In commemoration this page is to display some history and photos from our past. 

150th Anniversary

Over the years the church moved from the homes of members to a frame building on College Avenue, to the domed Greek Revival church on the corner of College and Dickson and then to the present building with periodic space additions. Pictures and history of the past and present church buildings reveal the continued commitment of the church to remain in the heart of Fayetteville.

The history One Faith, One Hope by Tammi Reed Ledbetter written for the 150 year celebration in 2004 traces distinctive priorities held throughout the years. The pages of this website reveal that First Baptist Church continues to value biblical beliefs, worship, missions and evangelism, fellowship, education/discipleship, and stewardship.

165th anniversary

In 2019 FBC Fayetteville celebrated our 165th anniversary with a booklet for our members to take home and read. The booklet included articles and testimonials about how FBC has started organizations that serve the community and how FBC has touched people for the first time.

Booklet can be accessed HERE.
