Welcome & Service Hours
Welcome to the official website of First Baptist Church-West where we are about the business of "Making First Things First." Led by Dr. Ricky A. Woods, FBC-W is a thriving fellowship of Christians located five minutes west of downtown Charlotte.
Formed in 1867 by a group of former slaves who refused to sit in a segregated church balcony, First Baptist-West is the oldest, Black Baptist Church in Mecklenburg County. In recent years, FBC-W has become known throughout the community for its strong social conscience and its extensive outreach programs.
But also get to know us for our pastor's Bible-based preaching and teaching; our choirs' harmonic, soul-reviving songs; and our outstretched hands of welcome where we seek to know you by name. Note that there's no dress code--casual or dressy it's your choice.
Feel free to explore our website, sign the guestbook below with your questions or comments or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and share in our many church activities. For directions, click HERE.
Our doors swing wide on welcome hinges.
NOTE THAT OUR WORSHIP HOUR IS ONE SERVICE
AT 9 A.M.
FOLLOWED BY SUNDAY SCHOOL AT 10:30 A.M.

I have been scrolling through your web pages. I was truly intrigued by your "Different in 90". I had a lot of questions about fasting, but I was truly enlightened by the info I found here.
