Who We Are

A Great Place to Worship and Learn about God

First Missionary Baptist Church, (FMBC) is a “God Centered Church, Serving With Joy and Striving for Oneness.” The church has been in existence for over 143 years. It blossomed under the leadership of Pastor Reverend Dr. William H. Graham for over 30 years and his vision and leadership led to the church's growth and to the building of its current sanctuary. In December 2022, Pastor Graham retired and Pastor Timothy McLaurin, Jr. accepted the call to pastor FMBC.


Currently, there are over 700 members who are constantly supporting and serving the Frederick Community.
