About Our Church


        Still Telling the Story of Jesus Since 1842

First Baptist Church was established in 1842 and it is located on the corner of Boone & Main Street in historic Jonesborough,  the oldest town in Tennessee. By the church's very design and location we are a relatively small church, but we offer a warm and welcoming environment in a big way for all who come through our doors. At FBC you can find renewed hope and strength through worship, fellowship, and a Christ-centered message.  You are cordially invited to join us and learn for yourself what a joy it is to  worship in a beautiful historic setting, lifting up the name of Jesus in a traditional Southern Baptist worship service.

    We Invite YOU to Come Worship With Us !
