Caring deeply, loving everyone, serving together.
First Baptist Church of Denver began in 1864. Two centuries later, Old First's steeple stands tall at the intersection of 14th Avenue and Grant Street directly across from the south steps of the State Capitol. Taller still is First's vision of being a center of activity for Capitol Hill where people of all walks of life and systems of belief can experience conversations rooted in hope and filled with a passion to serve the needs of the broader community.
Reflective of FBCD's historic commitment to social justice and the pursuit of equality for all people on April 16, 1962, the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr., preached from First Baptist's pulpit. Dr. King's vision of a beloved community is a vision for which FBCD's members still strive.
Children's Sunday School
First Baptist takes the safety and security of our children seriously.
All volunteers and staff who work with youth are background checked and have been trained in the safety and security of our youth. We have also developed policies and procedures that ensure our children are kept safe.
