Whether one approaches by land or sea, the landmark steeple of the church marks the center of this coastal community twenty miles north of Boston. Over the past two hundred years, the steeple itself has come to symbolize to both the membership, and the community at large, the commitment of the First Baptist Church to providing religious and civic leadership through Christian service to those in need and advocacy for peace.

Our vision is to be an open, welcoming, diverse fellowship of believers in Jesus Christ who are committed to carrying out his teachings.
As the church sustains our faith through worship and study, we will sustain and nurture each other, working and talking together and acting upon the concerns and celebrations of our church community. We seek to balance spiritual development and social action in order to share God’s love with others by shining our mission light at home and beyond.
