History of the Church

History of First Baptist Church of Thomasville, NC The First Baptist Church of Thomasville began its history as Thomasville Baptist Church. The name was changed to “First Baptist Church” after other Baptist churches were formed here – with many of those being fostered by this church. It was founded in 1857. Along about this time period, a man named Abraham Lincoln was thinking of running for Senate, Alaska was not yet a state, and it would be thirty years before the furniture factories would begin moving to High Point. It was 22 years before Thomasville factories would produce their first chair.

The church was received into the Liberty Baptist Association in 1859 and by 1863 the first structure was completed. It 1865, it is said that the building was used as a Confederate hospital. After the turn of the century, in 1908, a new building program began under direction of Pastor T.S. Crutchfield. It was completed in 1913. Another building program began in 1926 which would add Sunday school classrooms, a pipe organ to the sanctuary and additional property. This program made it through the hard years of the Depression and the church continued to grow and foster new churches. The most recent building project includes the sanctuary which was completed and put into service in 1964.

Many things would change over the years, new pastors, new buildings and struggles through several war-era time periods. The church has weathered many a storm, the church being the people as buildings come and go. Yet, it has survived and will continue to as long as it stands, not on a concrete foundation, but that foundation spoken of in scripture.

“For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ” - 1 Corinthians 3:11
