of Penfield

All are Welcome

The First Baptist Church of Penfield was established in 1804 in what is now an eastern suburb of Rochester, New York.

We are affiliated with American Baptist Churches of the Rochester/Genesee Region, and nationally with the American Baptist Churches, USA.

We welcome all to worship with us. Our congregation is a gathering of people who are diverse in theology and political opinions, but who are all seeking to know God in a deeper and more meaningful way.    

The First Baptist Church of Penfield continues striving to include all who seek Jesus as Lord- regardless of race, class, gender, disability, place of origin, or sexual orientation, identity, or expression.
