About Us

Fort Barnwell Baptist Church is located in Craven County, North Carolina. The church was founded April 1, 1854 and has remained a vibrant community of believers ever since.

Our congregation is Christian in its faith, Baptist in polity and practice and evangelistic in heart.   

 

Our Mission

Our mission is to glorify God by being a loving community of Christian believers. We reach out to all people through the proclamation of God’s Word, and we work in ministry to make His kingdom a reality.

 

Our Vision

Our vision is to help individuals connect with Jesus Christ and one another through worship, spiritual growth, and service, while maintaining an outward focus that permits us to be “salt and light” in our world.

 

Our History

As stated above the church was founded in April 1, 1854.  From 1854-1882, the church was getting established.  Pay close attention to these words that were the very foundation of our church, "As we trust we have been brought by Divine Grace to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ and by the influence of His Holy Spirit to give ourselves up to Him, so we do  now solemnly covenant with  each other as God shall enable that we will walk together in brotherly love:  That

we will exercise a Christian care and Watchfulness over each other, and faithfully warn, rebuke, and ad monish one another as the case shall require:  that we will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together nor omit the great duty of prayer, both for ourselves, and for others; that we will participate in each others' joys; and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each others' burdens and sorrows, still in the works
