First Baptist welcomes you to our weekly worship at 9:30 AM Sundays. We worship together, singing hymns old and new, listening for the Word, and endeavoring to be a community of faith that cares for one another and those around us, living out the gospel of Jesus Christ, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to the glory of God. Please click here for more info on our worship services.
Our mission is to grow and make disciples of Jesus Christ in and around Bennington. Jesus graciously calls us all to repent, believe, and follow him, and it is a joy to do that together. God’s free offer of forgiveness and eternal life is available to you today.
Do you want to follow Jesus? Or do you want to grow in your faith? Or perhaps you have questions or concerns. You’re in the right place! Do you hear God calling you? He loves you so much.
We would love to get to know you, answer any questions you may have, pray for you, and support you any way we can. It would bring us all so much joy to come alongside you in a life-changing journey into God’s amazing grace. Please contact Pastor Bob in person, by phone, or email.
First Baptist is also a leader in community efforts to meet the basic human needs of the greater Bennington area. We work together with organizations, interfaith and non-profit alike, to encourage collaborative efforts and help our neighbors in need. There are three non-profit agencies located in the church: Vermont Center for Independent Living, Family Time, and Hands of Hope (for more information visit Non-profits at FBC).
We are affiliated with the American Baptist Churches USA and American Baptist Churches of Vermont & New Hampshire
We love Bennington, and are partners with the local Interfaith Council, the Bennington Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Better Bennington Corporation.
