147 years and counting at The corner of Pine and Third! Thank you for visiting.
____ Our Vision: To live by Faith; To be known by Our Love; To be a Voice of Hope.
Our prayer is that you will be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. We are a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process, grow together. May God richly bless you! Thought for the Week
“The mere presence of the shepherd puts the sheep at peace. When he is near, they don't panic, and they don't fight. They can lay down in peaceful slumber. It's the same with you and me. Nothing reduces stress like the presence of the Shepherd. When you are living in close connection to Jesus, you can sleep, you can relax, you can rest.”― James Collins

The family at First Baptist Church in Collingwood extends a warm welcome to everyone to join us on Sunday mornings at 10:30 at 160 Pine Street.

Each year, First Baptist provides both financial and spiritual support to a variety of groups and organizations as part of our mission.
We are also proud to have celebrated our 147th Anniversary last September 27 as we looked back to the founding members of First Baptist who held their first organizational meeting in a stable.
Pastor Paul brings us messages filled with Bible teachings, wisdom and practical life skills, and we are blessed as from time to time, he shows us his musical skills at the piano, the organ and his trusty accordion.
