Questions regarding the First Baptist Church Congregation, contact the Church Office:

Ownership of the renown First Baptist Church Building at 17th and Sansom Streets in Philadelphia has been transferred in an historic agreement signed on Monday, September 15, 2014.  The new owner is Liberti Church, a member congregation in the Reformed Church in America. The Liberti congregation has been worshipping here for the last three-and-a-half years under a lease agreement. While facing several options, the membership of First Baptist chose Liberti instead of a commercial development interest, so that this building would continue to be a source of ministry, healing, and a center for community life and support.

Going forward, all use of building questions and scheduling should be addressed through the Liberti Church Staff.
