Who we are

Aberdeen First Baptist Church is located in Moore County, North Carolina. The church was founded in 1894 and has remained a vibrant community of believers ever since. Our congregation is Christian in its faith, Baptist in its convictions and polity and evangelistic in its heart.  Aberdeen First Baptist is affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, which is a cooperating fellowship of 47,000 churches in the United States.  Our doctrinal statement is the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).

AFBC is best described as a conservative community of diverse people committed to applying the teachings of the Bible to every facet of living, while acknowledging our own brokenness and need for a loving and supportive church family.

Our mission is to glorify God by the faithful preaching and teaching of the Bible, to grow believers as personal disciples of Jesus, equipping them for local ministry and nurturing a heart to contribute in getting the gospel to all people.
