The First Baptist Church of Asheville is a dynamic community of faith committed to the reverent and joyful worship of God, local and global missional engagement, and excellence in the musical arts.
This is a unique, Christ-centered fellowship, with roots in the Baptist tradition, as well as a wide ecumenical embrace. We’re known for our welcoming spirit and engaging ministries, where opportunities abound for people of all ages and abilities to grow in faith and share their gifts.
