Our Story

First Baptist Church has had a long, storied history in Bisbee.  Incorporated in 1904, we first planted our roots in the canyons of Old Bisbee where we flourished during the heyday of the mining operations in Bisbee and Cochise County.  In 1990 we moved to San Jose where we finally had room to grow the ministries of the church—not to mention expand our parking capacity.

By God’s grace, we seek to continue the rich heritage of shining the bright light of the Gospel into the hearts and lives of those living in our community and around the world in our support of missionaries. We desire to be a church of passionate followers of Jesus Christ who both know Him as He has revealed Himself in His word and make Him known. If you are looking for a place to belong, where you will be accepted as you are, and are looking to connect with God, we invite you to join us on Sundays at 10:45AM.
