Welcome to Perry's First Baptist Church. We are a living, breathing body of Christ, experiencing life together. We gather on Sundays to grow and give, but there is so much more to our community of believers. Come join in this fellowship of caring, learning and worship, as we are joined together in the common bond of Jesus Christ.
A Sunday morning bible study and a comfortable entry into the life of the church, Sunday school consists of small groups for all ages, from senior adults to nursery.
