Who We Are

The First Baptist Church at Conshohocken is a growing multi-racial fellowship of Christians who are dedicated to the worship of God the Father, the proclamation of Good News through the Person and Work of Jesus Christ and the sovereignty of the Holy Spirit in the lives of individual Christians and the collective life of our fellowship.

Areas of Christian Emphasis:

1.   We Declare the Word of God

  • Evangelistically, to bring people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ
  • Instructively, to nurture mature and fruitful disciples of Jesus Christ

2.   We Practice Prayer - One local radio station described our church by observing that "Prayer is a priority for this close congregation that strives to reach out to, and intercede on behalf of, the community."

3.   We Enjoy Close-knit Fellowship - Our Christian family offers a hospitable, nurturing environment in which people feel very much at home.

4.   We Emphasis Discipleship, Evangelism and Mission

  • Discipleship- We have cell groups and personal mentoring in the Word and Spirit of God;
  • Evangelism- We have a horizon that looks beyond our own walls and we have ministered, personally and programmatically, to share the Gospel with our community;
  • Mission- We support Christian missionary work, both local and global, as well as individual and agency efforts, with our finances, our prayer and our practical efforts.

Particulars:

  • Our Affiliations - The First Baptist Church at Conshohocken is affiliated with the American Baptist Churches of Pennsylvania and Delaware. We are conservative and evangelical in our theology and are very intentional in striking the right balance in our expression of the love and truth of Jesus Christ.
