146 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 “Conquer the angry one by not getting angry; conquer the wicked by goodness; conquer the stingy by generosity, and the liar by speaking the truth."--- Siddhārtha Gautama Photo courtesy of Greg Geen
COVID-19 ADVISORY as of March 29
Until further notice, all Sunday services and Church meetings are cancelled in line with direction and regulations from health care officials and legislators.
Pastor Wilkes, however, continues his ministry on line. His messages and music can be found at:
Hymn Sing: Each Sunday morning, we begin our Service with a hymn sing, led by Pastor Wilkes. We sing old favorites selected by our congregation. Everyone is welcome to join us as we make a joyful noise unto the Lord.
First Baptist Church: where you're a stranger only once.
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. Pastor Paul Wilkes is our spiritual leader and has brought a renewed spirit of peace, joy and love to us and is leading us to focus our energies on increasing our outreach into our community.
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 146th Anniversary last September 23 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.
