Who We Are

For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the many parts of that one body are one body, so also is Christ. 1 Corinthians 12:12

How it all started...

Rockwood First Baptist Church was founded in 1878 with a desire to see souls saved and lives changed forever in Rockwood, Tennessee through the power of the gospel of Christ. Knowing that the Lord accomplishes this through the local body of believers, Rockwood First Baptist Church was formed.

Our Mission...

Rockwood First Baptist Church exists to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ through faithful service for the increase of His kingdom. It is our desire to see souls saved and lives changed forever through the Gospel of Christ and then to see them transformed through faithful discipleship by the Body of Christ. We seek to love God, love others, and serve the world.

Where we are headed, Our Vision...

The world and our culture are changing daily before our very eyes, but the mission of the church has and will never change. Rockwood First Baptist Church will not waiver in its desire and commitment to fulfill the "Great Commission".  Our methodologies may change over time, but our message will remain the same, "For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures" 1 Corinthians 15:3-4

Our desire is to reach all people with the gospel of Christ, but we especially desire to reach young families in order to impact future generations.
