Our History

Three years after Piedmont received its city charter and one year prior to Oklahoma statehood, the Lord gathered fifteen believers and birthed First Baptist Church of Piedmont. With a sharp focus on the Great Commission, this small body quickly grew, baptizing new believers in nearby Deer Creek. Early services were held in Piedmont’s Star School. Explosive growth led to the acquisition of property within one year, and the first meeting in FBC Piedmont’s new sanctuary was in 1908.

Both Piedmont and FBC Piedmont continued to grow, requiring this faithful new congregation to relocate to the present location in 1926. Believers’ baptism moved inside for the first time on April 24, 1938. The Great Commission continued to drive First Baptist Church of Piedmont’s purpose. The Lord continued to add to the church and after additional land acquisitions and building programs, the current sanctuary was dedicated on March 28, 1982.

Since its beginning, First Baptist Church of Piedmont has been committed to its community and to the bold proclamation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We love Piedmont. We love our neighbors. We are thankful for our home, and we are thankful for the way the Lord continues to reveal Himself in the life of FBC Piedmont.
