Changing the world. Changing lives.

One heart at a time. One family at a time.

God has blessed First Baptist Church Watertown with a rich heritage that spans over a century. Built on a solid foundation of proclaiming God's Word, First Baptist began when 125 members of Round Lick Baptist Church decided that it would be "far better for the Baptist cause at Watertown" to build a house of worship nearer the center of town. Since its beginning in 1903, reaching people with the Good News of Christ has always been our heartbeat.
