First Baptist Church, Carthage, NY

About Our Church

We are a small congregation in Northern New York, affiliated with the American Baptist Churches, USA. We are a conservative, evangelical, and ecumenical congregation involved in evangelism and world missions.

This congregation was established in 1833 as a group of people who win people to Christ, help Christians grow, and to help people who hurt. This year marks our 180th year of being a church!

Services are held on Sunday morning at 9:30. Children's Sunday School is during the service. There is an adult Sunday School which meets at Country Manor Nursing Home as part of our outreach to the community.

We would like to welcome you to our church. We hope you feel at home and very comfortable in our midst. Pastor Bob and Sharon Barone

Historical Tidbits

In 1921, the building was raised up and the basement was converted into a kitchen, dining room, stage with footlights, restrooms, and dressing rooms for baptismal services. Quite an undertaking for that era!

On January 11, 1938, work started on the interior decoration of the church. The large, high-ceilinged auditorium was refinished first with the expectation of completing work in other parts of the church later in the year.

The Women's Council

The women of First Baptist welcomes all ladies to join us for the meetings several times throughout the year. We have programs and conduct buisness, pray for and support several missionaries, and work on providing food for several events. We hold rummage sales two times a year - one in the Spring and one in the fall. Watch the newspaper for dates and how to donate items.
