Welcome to First Baptist Church

“Riding the Wave of God’s Spirit at Work in Our World”

First Baptist Church is a faith community in Kennett Square, PA with a rich history of seeking to be faithful to God’s leading, guiding and directing in our lives. Our goal is to help you encounter God in the midst of your everyday life so you can grow spiritually.

A note from the lay leadership

We are a vibrant community with a rich history of ministry and service in Kennett Square. Years ago the decision was made that our facility would be used well every day of the week. It was an issue of stewardship, getting the most out of this special place God has blessed us with.

Each Sunday as our community gathers for worship we are eager to see how God is working and moving within our midst.  We invite you to join us and experience what it is like to be part of a community that cares for you and wants to see you grow.
