Celebrating 156 Years of 
Holy Spirit Filled Christian Worship

Greetings Virtual Friend,

 Welcome to the virtual home of the First African Baptist Church of Goldsboro, North Carolina. Here we are intentional about educating, equipping, and empowering disciples for Kingdom readiness. Our theme for this season of ministry is “A Fully Engaged Church"  We are purposed in our hearts to be engaged in a contagious loving attitude that will provide spiritual shelter and encouragement during difficult times!

The First African Baptist Church family is a vibrant, committed and long-standing congregation with a passionate interest in the nurture and spiritual growth of seekers and disciples desiring to strengthen their faith walk with God. We encourage you to come alongside of us and experience the transformative power of the Holy Spirit. Our ministry offerings are designed to  provide opportunities to move a disciple of Jesus from spiritual inactivity to spiritual fulfillment through the exercising of one’s God-given gifts. If you are in search of a church where the Word of God is preached and taught and community care is intentionally encouraged, this then is the place for you! Why not take a leap of faith and join us as we become instruments of grace and compassion in someone’s life?

We invite you to join us! Come and see for yourself what the Lord is doing in our midst and BECOME ENGAGED IN KINGDOM WORK IN THE MARVELOUS NAME OF JESUS THE CHRIST!
