Welcome to First Baptist Church, Rutherfordton

Unlike the song, we haven’t “been here ten thousand years,” but we have been a solid part of the Rutherfordton community since 1851.  Many things have changed since then but one thing remains the same.  We care about you!  It is important to us that you know that we welcome you to visit and get to know us.  As you click through the pages of this website, consider joining us this Sunday for exciting Sunday School lessons and thought-provoking sermons.  Gather with us on Wednesday night for a meal and some friendly conversation or check out our Calendar of Events or Current News to see how you can become apart of our church family here at First Baptist!  Feel free to download our current Bulletin Newsletters to determine week to week happenings!
