One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism


First Baptist Church History.

First church              


       In the year of 1871 the Baptist believers desired to organize a meeting house of worship in the town of Harrisonburg, Virginia. The Rev William Hill was called for this purpose and was the church's first pastor. From his leadership and the aid of a few Baptist people a church was organized. It was Located on West Market Street.
       Dr C E Williams is the present pastor and has started to make a differnce in the church body with spiritual growth. We are in the process of Kingdom Building for the community with his guidance.
       Pastors of the church saw many improvements made during their pasturage. There were quite a few pastors from 1871-2006. During the tearing down of the Wolfe Street church many records were lost. We do not know what some of the first pastors accomplishments were. Some of the Pastors names and what they did while they were pastor was lost.
