In 1972, God put it in the hearts of about 20 people to start a church in Goodrich, Michigan. Pastor Richard Johnson would lead the congregation to purchase the beautiful 12-acre parcel the church is positioned on today. They would see their faith become sight in 1976 when the doors of First Baptist Church would open to the community. First Baptist has always had a heart to reach the world for souls with a great missions program, as well as the community around them. Celebrating almost 50 years of service, First Baptist Church continues to strive for the prize of the high calling of Jesus Christ.
We are a conservative, Bible believing, Baptist Church with the desire to be "Serving Christ Together!" We hope you will consider visiting us at First Baptist Church of Goodrich.
