We are a Southern Baptist Church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention. We adhere to the doctrinal statement as published in the Baptist Faith and Message (2000).


Our vision is that God use First Baptist Church of Troy as an instrument in the saving, equipping, and sending fully functioning members of the body of Christ throughout our city, state, nation, and world who practice their faith in God, love well, share the gospel, and disciple believers who in turn do the same for Jesus' sake.


First Baptist Church of Troy's mission is to love the Lord, equip the church, and go make disciples of all nations.
