About Us

Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family

Who we are

We are a multigenerational family that has a desire to make the name of Jesus known from the red hills of Mississippi to the ends fo the earth.

Where we come from

Located in the heart of Louisville, Mississippi, First Baptist church is a county-seat Baptist church that has been around for more than 180 Years. While we are honored and humbled by our heritage, our church is seeking new ways to engage our community as well as being involved on the mission field - be that down the street, in our state, across the nation or around the world.

Where we're headed

Community engagement! God has given us an unbelievable opportunity to engage our community, and that is exactly where we are heading. We don't want to be just a church that gathers and worships. We want to go and tell. God has given us the greatest news the world has ever known and we want to engage our communities, love our neighbors, and share the love of Jesus with the people that we do life with.
