Welcome to First Baptist Church in Elsberry!

The famous preacher Charles Spurgeon once said,

“If I had never joined a church till I had found one that was perfect, I should never have joined one at all; and the moment I did join it, if I had found one, I should have spoiled it, for it would not have been a perfect church after I had become a member of it. Still, imperfect as it is, it is the dearest place on earth to us.”

The "dearest place on earth" is how we feel about our church. Though established over 130 years ago today we have almost as many children in worship as adults and 80% of our members have joined within the past few years. We're a church that believes the Bible and loves Jesus. We consider ourselves family and want to love each other as we have been loved. We also want to see our family grow as others come to know Jesus and become his followers too.

We hope you'll spend some time looking around our site and decide to visit us this Sunday!
