Welcome to the First Baptist Church in Melrose, MA.

Being Confident of this, that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.  Philippians 1:6
Living Nativity
Saturday, December 5th, 5PM
Come to experience the reenactment of that First Christmas.  Come to capture the joy, the wonder and the excitement of the season with live characters and live animals right on our church's lawn.  Join us for cookies and hot cocoa inside after this wonderful event.

First Baptist Melrose warmly invites you to visit us and discover the personal Savior, Jesus Christ, whom we worship and follow. Our church family is made up of many different individuals from diverse backgrounds and cultures. We hope you will consider visiting us. The pastoral staff is always open to talk with you or your family about your spiritual life. May you find a deep and abiding presence of Christ among this fellowship of believers.

Our Sunday worship services are at 11AM.  We are handicapped accessible and we also offer hearing aid assistance. Certified childcare is offered during the service.

Our Sunday morning service is the focal point of who we are as Christians, and of everything we do for our Lord. We gather together to raise our voices in unified worship. We proclaim that Jesus Christ is our Lord and Savior and we share and remember together the great things He has done for us. We listen to the Word of God, we pray together, we participate from the Lord's Supper the first Sunday of the month, and we listen to Bible-based sermons which are relevant for our lives today.  God's Word is alive and always meets us where we are, week after week. It is in all these things that we glorify the Name of the Lord together!
