The history of the First Baptist Church of Philadelphia can be traced back to 1698 at which time the congregation met and worshipped at an old abandoned building which they shared with a group of Presbyterians. From these humble beginnings, the church grew in size and stature, and eventually moved in to the existing church building. This impressive structure was constructed in 1808, and what a magnificent sight it is. Dominated by a large central spire, the church is spacious and richly decorated with rich gilded paint and mould work. A vibrant and welcoming place of worship, the church supports a host of community groups, outreach programs and support groups, apart from its religious activities. All are welcomed with open arms to join the congregation in prayer and worship.
