About

First Baptist Church marks its beginning in the year 1812 when 23 persons met in the State House to organize a Gospel Church known as the Raleigh Baptist Church. That early Church began with an integrated membership of 14 slaves of African descent and 9 free men. In 1996 First Baptist Church called Dr. Dumas Alexander Harshaw, Jr. to become its 22nd pastor since its beginning in 1812 and the 10th pastor of the modern era. Under Dr. Harshaw’s leadership, the Church has reorganized several of its auxiliaries and programs and has placed strong emphasis upon bible study, prayer, and missions.
