Southern Baptist Convention

Located off of Highway 58, near I-77, just minutes away from the beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway, First Baptist Church of Galax stands as a gathering of believers in God's kingdom under the lordship of our Savior, Jesus Christ and seek to fulfill the Great Commission (Matt. 28:19-20), using Christ and biblical scripture as our guide and authority. Our mission is to make Christ known through love, to minister to people's diverse needs, to provide an atmosphere of worship and praise, to grow together toward Christ-like maturity, and to equip all for ministry in the church, community, and world.
