Welcome to First Baptist Church, Southern Pines, and the Sandhills of North Carolina!

Here you will find people at different points in their faith journey, worshiping together in a spirit of community, learning, and love. We hope you will visit us, attend a service, or participate in an event. We invite you to browse our website, and contact us with any questions or ways we might be of help.

Summer is a great time for online giving! We encourage you to consider Online Giving when you're on the road, out of town, or on vacation. Contact Lisa in the church office at (910) 692-8750 if you have any questions.
