First Baptist Church has a long tradition of serving Christ in the Manhattan, Kansas, area. We hope to make all visitors as well as longtime worshipers  feel welcome and  filled with the Spirit through the Word of God.  Sunday worship, spiritual growth programs, and Wednesday evening ministries are among the many opportunities we offer to build a deep and abiding faith in God.

Our current location – 2121 Blue Hills Road – was built in 1966.  The original First Baptist Church of Manhattan was organized with just ten members in 1858.  After more than 150 years, the congregation remains a strong, vibrant witness to America’s heartland.  Reverend John C. Parsley is serving as pastor.

ABC 2We are an American Baptist Church affiliate.  The First Baptist Church of Manhattan mission logo reveals an understanding of faith-centeredness in the good news of God’s love revealed in Jesus Christ, a desire to encourage growth and maturity in one another by the power of the Holy Spirit, and a commitment to share God’s love with our community and world.

FBC Misson

Our congregation has decided to work toward becoming an missional church whose focus is outward, toward the community.
