Middlesboro, KY

All Are Welcome Here

At First Baptist, we recognize that God calls us to be active participants in God’s Kingdom. Our ecumenical spirit has led us to partner with churches of all denominations in order to participate in God’s transformational work in this world. 

Our Approach

We believe that as the church, God has called us to be faithful in our stewardship, authentic in our worship, steadfast in our discipleship, courageous in our mission, and enthusiastic in our fellowship, and we welcome those who wish to journey with us.

Appalachian Immersion

Appalachian Immersion is “missions” for the 21st-century. The old, 20th-century way of marshaling missionaries and sending them around the globe to impart Christianity upon the “unsaved” and “unchurched” did some good, but it also too often inadvertently exported American culture along with the Gospel message.
