Our History

Founded in 1923 and spreading the gospel for over 90 years

In 2013, we celebrated our 90th anniversary since opening our doors in 1923. We have seen the city grow as more people moved in and more buildings were built. However, our primary goal of being a shining light in the Yuba City and Marysville area has always been the same. We look forward to our 100-Year Anniversary in a few years in 2023!

First Baptist Church is an independent, fundamental, Baptist church located in Yuba City, California. Our church is easily accessible from anywhere in the Yuba or Sutter county areas. Our church facilities are located in a downtown area to better serve our community.

There are more than 15,000 independent Baptist churches in America and at least 10,000 independent Baptist missionaries serving on mission fields worldwide. Every independent Baptist church is an autonomous congregation. We are self- governing and self-supporting. The head of the church is the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible is our sole authority for faith and practice. It is our desire to be a truly New Testament church.
