Harvest Day 2021

Everyone is invited to join us for our special Harvest Day worship service on Sunday, October 10th at 10:00 followed by an incredible “dinner on the grounds”. Harvest Day was first celebrated in 1955 as a way to celebrate the “seasonal members” who were leaving town before the winter months. Since we are no longer a “seasonal” church; Now, it is the closest thing we have to an old fashion “homecoming” as we celebrate all the God is doing in and through First Baptist and our faith community.

Wednesday Night Fall Small Groups

Join us for one of our Wednesday night small group studies starting on Wednesday Night, September 8th at 6:00. We have several to choose from with some lasting 6-8 weeks and others 10-12 weeks. There will also be activities for children and students.

Fill the Tank Baptism Sunday

We will be joining hundreds of other churches in North Carolina by celebrating “fill the tank” Sunday on September 12th and the 19th by providing an opportunity for anyone who is interested to participate in Baptism. If you are interested or would like more information, contact the church office. We already have many signed up to participate and we are excited to see what God has planned for this powerful time of obedience and worship!

Sign Up for a Ministry Team

As we move into a Post- Covid period, we are re-establishing all of our Ministry Teams who plan, lead and implement many of the important ministries of the church. This is voluntary service and a great way for you to apply your spiritual gifts to benefit the church body and participate in ministry to our community. Check out the list of teams and sign up today. New Teams will start on July 1st.

Current Sermon Series

Join us on Sunday mornings this fall for a new sermon series from the Book of Hebrews. This series gives us some great examples of how to live and stand for your beliefs and principles in a culture and society that is hostile towards those beliefs. In a culture that is searching for truth and answers, do we really believe that Jesus Christ is sufficient for those answers and needs?  Join us to find out!

Join us for Worship

We are back worshiping in person and live in our Worship Center every Sunday morning at 10:00. We continue to practice safety protocols through our service to provide you the best option for your family. Mask are optional and use your best judgment on social distancing. If you are still uncomfortable meeting in person, please continue to join us live online.

Watch us Live!

Sunday Mornings at 10:00 a.m. (EST)

Welcome to

First Baptist Blowing Rock

"A church is not the building you see from the road; that is the building that the church meets in. Here at First Baptist Church Blowing Rock, our church is a community of seekers, searchers and sinners all pursuing the incredible journey that comes from an intimate relationship with our creator."

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.
