We are meeting in person for Sunday service. Our service is also broadcast over Zoom. If you are interested in joining the Zoom broadcast please email the church at email@example.com
After a season of research, reflection, and prayer, First Baptist Church is in the process of closing our church location and migrating to one or more churches together. The church is the people of God, not a building, and our focus is on how each of us can worship, grow, and serve God most faithfully. There is tremendous love for each other within First Baptist Stoneham, which is only a faint reflection of the love that God has shown us by sending Jesus to save us, and carry us through these challenging times.
There were a number of factors that are leading us to this period of discernment: (1) Over the past several years, a number of dearly loved brothers and sisters have died and gone to be with the Lord. (2) The building, constructed over a hundred years ago, has a number of expensive repair projects that will be required in the near future. (3) Due to the societal shifts that we’ve experienced through Covid half our worship attendees are virtual over Zoom, which makes the physical church building less relevant to our mission at increased costs.
We are still discerning what the future holds for our congregation, but we are united by our trust in the power and love of our Lord Jesus. God will continue to guide each of us to a place where we can grow in our faith and serve to be a blessing to others. As we better understand what other changes will be coming, we will post here to keep our community updated.
Welcome to FBC Stoneham
The people at First Baptist Church seek to be transformed by the power and love of Jesus Christ. We are imperfect people who try to be real with each other as we worship God, care for each other, and reach out to our community. We hold on to the promises of God, that He is able to redeem us from sin and transform us to be more like Jesus day by day.
If you are looking for a place to be yourself and connect to other people who are at different stages in their relationship with Jesus, then FBC Stoneham may be the place where God is calling you.
At every Sunday worship service we turn our attention to a section of the Bible, seeking to learn from the Pastor its practical application to our lives. We trust that the Holy Spirit gives us “ears to hear” what God is saying to our hearts through these sermons as we grow in relationship with Him.
There are regular opportunities for people to be together at First Baptist outside of Sunday mornings. This includes weekly activities like youth group and the weekly prayer service, as well as special events like Supper on the Beach. Check out our events page to see what opportunities are coming up.
Generous giving enables the continued ministry at First Baptist Church of Stoneham, and we marvel at God’s provision for our church community. We pray for wisdom to use the resources He provides, focusing on ministry investment that leads people into a life-changing relationship with Jesus.
