Welcome to the First Baptist Church of Portland, Michigan!

First Baptist Church has from the start, in 1840, faithfully proclaimed the Bible as the infallible Word of God. It is our belief that in this day of shifting values, and confusing and often conflicting messages, man's greatest need is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

We believe as well that God's first institution, the family, is being threatened and is endangered. It is our intention through the ministry of the Word, the building of relationships, and the sharing of our burdens to augment and strengthen the family.

It is our hope that we can minister to you through God's Word, uplifting worshipful music, and the varied ministries of the church. We would like to help strengthen your relationship with our living God, encourage your life, and lead you to a place of spiritual maturity.
