WHO WE ARE
First Baptist Church is an Independent Evangelical Baptist Church located in the center of Kewanee, IL. In 1851 the church began meeting in a log cabin in Wethersfield but soon moved to Kewanee in 1856 and assumed the name First Baptist Church. In 1905 the church built and dedicated the building at its current location.
While much has changed since it was founded over 150 years ago our purpose remains the same. To represent and proclaim Jesus Christ to Kewanee.
Come to worship as you are and feel welcomed as a new friend.
