Who We Are

Welcome to the website and to the mission and ministry of this great congregation. I believe we are called to give thanks to God in our daily living for the abundant life God intends for each of us.

It would be an honor, on behalf of First Baptist Church, to welcome you in person to our church family.

Please introduce yourself to me via email, telephone or better yet, on a Sunday.

Your partner in Christ’s mission, William Englund, Pastor First Baptist Church 651-222-0718 pastor@firstbaptiststpaul.org
