CHURCH HISTORY

Mt. Airy First Baptist Church was organized on August 9, 1879 under the name The Mt. Airy Baptist Church of Christ. Sixteen people formed the charter membership which has grown to our current membership of more than 800 and a resident membership of almost 500. The organizing of the church is believed to be unique in the fact that, the day it was founded, the membership had at hand a new, up-to-date, frame building ready and waiting. A Sunday School was promptly organized and a Women’s Missionary Society was organized in 1887.

In 1906 work began on the granite building that would house a sanctuary, but today houses our fellowship hall. This building was completed in 1912 and served as the center for all activities until the granite educational building was dedicated the week of March 1-6, 1953. A new sanctuary was dedicated October 6, 1968 and remains as the current sanctuary. After worship services and activities were moved to the new sanctuary and educational building , what became known as the "old sanctuary" was used less and began to deteriorate. Yet, the church continued to grow and more space was needed. So, in March 1990 the church voted to undertake extensive renovations designed to both preserve the wonderful properties of the old sanctuary and utilize all the space inside to its fullest potential. From this came a Fellowship Hall where many church activities are held, a modern, expanded kitchen that allows us to provide ministries such as Friends Feeding Friends, a dedicated nursery suite, children's Sunday School floor, and a youth suite with Sunday School rooms and a gathering place for our youth ministry. Since that time, renovations have been completed on the Educational Building and the old Fellowship Hall, creating a place for small gatherings such as showers, meetings and funeral visitations.

We are currently undergoing another period of renovation, updating our current sanctuary building. Throughout our history, all of the expansions and renovations were undertaken in order to make our physical facility useful and accessible to everyone. The additions of Handicapped parking, a separate Nursery entrance, an elevator, and numerous ramps have combined to make FBC a welcoming place to all.

The paragraphs above list the history of our church buildings, but our history goes far beyond buildings and renovations. We have seen our membership grow with each passing year and have been blessed with many wonderful pastors and lay leaders. Our WMU and Baptist Men have been and continue to be active in prayer, missions and many other ways. In the community, Friends Feeding Friends provides a meal to those who need one each week. We have a busy Senior Adult Prime Timers ministry, as well as ongoing youth and children’s activities and projects.

For more information, a complete history of our church is available in the church office. The following excerpt was taken from the forward of our Church History compiled in honor of our 125th anniversary in 2004. We hope we will continue to live life in such a way.

It is interesting to note that the light bulb was invented in the same year that our church was organized. May we suggest that just as the light bulb brought light to the world, so did the members and work of the First Baptist Church of Mt. Airy. As men and women through the years have allowed God to lead in their lives, they have brightened and illuminated many things. May we go forward as a church in seeking God's will in our lives, that God may be glorified and that we may be the people He would have us be."
