ABOUT US

First Baptist Church has a long and rich history beginning in 1857. Just before Kansas became a state on January 29, 1861 and shortly after Topeka was established.

The photo on the left is the second church building that was built on the same corner of 9th & Jackson.

First Baptist Church relocated to its present location, 3033 SW MacVicar Ave, in the late 1960s. It was dedicated in May of 1970. A gymnasium and additional classrooms were added in October of 2002.

It is affiliated with the American Baptist Church U.S.A. and the American Baptist Churches of the Central Region. 

First Baptist supports many local organizations and community support groups. Below are a few of the ministries we support.
