Leading people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
First Baptist Church in Portland, Maine, was founded on July 24, 1801. Since then, this church has existed to bring honor and glory to God. The purpose of FBC has been to become a people of God, who glorify God, as we live out His Word in love, by the power of the Holy Spirit, until the Lord Jesus comes again. We desire to see our community and the world reached with the gospel (the good news of salvation found in Christ), and seek to lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.
