Welcome to First Baptist Blowing Rock

Welcome to First Baptist Church of Blowing Rock! I am glad you have chosen to look deeper into who we are and what we feel called to be. I believe you will find the people who make up this church to be a beautifully God-centered people who are passionate in our faith, authentic in our struggles, and desperate to become who the bible says we are.

Blowing Rock is a unique town made up of long time locals, seasonal residents, retirees, college students from nearby Appalachian State, tourist, and young families looking to raise their kids in a small town environment. It has something for everyone from our beautiful mountains, seasonal weather and national forest to its “days gone by” atmosphere. It is this uniqueness that makes First Baptist Blowing Rock a wonderful place to worship and serve God.

I want to thank you for stopping by our website and for your interest in our church. Our desire here at First Baptist is to be a place of spiritual intimacy where you can find a Biblical community that serves and ministers to the surrounding area. We are striving to live, serve and follow in the steps of Jesus Christ as we share His message of grace, forgiveness and salvation.
