About Us


Who are we

We are a church located in Burlington, North Carolina with 500 plus members.  First Baptist was founded in 1868 by freed slaves when the city of Burlington was called Company Shops.  For more than 150 years, First Baptist has never had a split and has served God in three different buildings.   A pastoral vacancy occurred in August 2019 and now we are seeking an energetic and visionary leader who can carry on this great legacy started over 150 years ago.   We welcome your interest and if you are interested, please download and complete the application and send it to the email address provided.
