First Baptist Church seeks to make Christ known by doing works of love in the city of Winston-Salem and beyond. Our missions focus areas are hunger, shelter, education, and healing. Our current focus ministries are the Backpack Program with Forest Park Elementary School, Crisis Control, and the Winston-Salem Street School. First Baptist supports these ministries financially and hands-on through volunteering. You learn more about each of these ministries and their needs below.
Seeking to follow Jesus' teachings in the Sermon on the Mount and Matthews 25:35-40, we take seriously the simple but profound call to love our neighbors. We hope that you will work with us on one of the focus ministries along with others in which you already participate. Jesus is with us everywhere we go, and sometimes we meet Him in the most unlikely places! We hope to find you in one of those places!
