Who we are, where we come from, and where we're headed as a church family.

Who we are

We are a body of believers committed to worshipping and serving Jesus Christ. We join with like minded Christians in spreading the gospel around the world. Christ reached out to people of all ages and backgrounds and at FBCG we desire to do the same. That's why you'll discover ministries geared to various life stages and needs. We have a place for everyone to study the Scriptures, fellowship together, and minister to others through numerous service opportunities.


We are here to minister to you and your loved ones and to help strengthen your faith in the Christ!

"Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord unto me." Much has been given to our church for over 196 years of ministry! The future is both exciting and challenging. As a church, we want to accomplish all God has for us to do and to be instruments of His love!

Where we come from

First Baptist Church of Gaston was started in 1824 as Sandy Run Baptist Church. Over the last 196 years, we have met in 5 different buildings with all but 1 at our current location. As we quickly approach our bicentennial, we are thankful for the many blessings God has poured out on our church and look with excitement to what great things He has yet to do!

Where we're headed

What's the bottom line? More than ever, FBCG is committed to living up to our motto of being "The Caring Place". CARE for the message of Christ in a modern world. CARE for our family and our community. CARE for those searching for answers, a place to belong, and a family to worship, fellowship and grow with.
