First Baptist Church is located in downtown Minneapolis. Throughout its 165-year history, God has done some incredible work through the people of our church. Here at First, it is all about Jesus. We want to see lives and our city renewed through relationship with Jesus. We seek to put him at the center of all that we do, and are always asking the question, "Is this what Jesus wants for our church?" This question guides the work we do as we help to make, mature and multiply disciples in and through our community.
Our home is found in the west part of Downtown Minneapolis. Within a half mile of our building, there are approximately 21,000 people who also call this area home. The largest segment are young professionals, who work in professional and service jobs in the downtown area. We also have large segments of Baby Boomers who have moved downtown as empty-nesters, as well as those living at or below the poverty line. We are excited to reach our neighbors with the gospel.
