What We Do
We are a Christ-centered, biblically grounded, ethnically diverse people called radical personal discipleship in Christ Jesus.
We are a worshipping people who gather regularly to praise God; who receive nourishment by communion with the risen Christ; who share an open and public confesion of faith; and who believe that personal devotion brings vitality to corporate celebration
We are an historic congregation who, in 1698, "did coalesce into a church for the communion of saints," near the drawbridge on Water Street near Dock. Here begins the story of the First Baptist Church of Philadelphia
