Our Story

How it all started...

First Baptist Church of Marilla was founded on May 11, 1873.  This church was founded by a group of like-minded believers who desired to see the Gospel spread to the small farming community of Marilla and surrounding areas.  

Throughout the years - additions were added to the church building to accommodate the growth of our various ministries, including the additions of a gymnasium, offices, and classrooms.  In 2008, a significant addition was added to the property which more than doubled our seating capacity for our growing church.

Expanding the vision...

In 2013,  FBCM was donated a large parcel of land that has been developed into our Creation Walk Nature Trail and soccer fields.
This trail has become a very popular place for our community to enjoy God's creation and be inspired by our Creator.
The soccer fields host our Micro-kickers soccer ministry and local soccer teams, as well as an open place for the community to play.

Where we are headed...

Future plans include additional sports fields at our Nature Trails, as well as a pavilion to allow for additional outdoor ministries.
