Caring Deeply. Loving Everyone. Serving Together.
First Baptist Church of Denver (“FBCD”) began in 1864. Two centuries later FBCD’s steeple stands tall at the intersection of 14th Avenue and Grant Street directly across from the south steps of the State Capitol. Taller still is FBCD’s vision of being a center of activity for Captiol Hill where people of all walks of life and systems of belief can experience conversations rooted in hope and filled with a passion to serve the needs of the broader community.
Reflective of FBCD’s historic commitment to social justice and the pursuit of equality for all people on April 16, 1962, the Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King, Jr., preached from FBCD’s pulpit. Dr. King’s vision of a beloved community is a vision for which FBCD’s members still strive.
FBCD worships on Sunday mornings at 10:30. Its worship style is very eclectic. Through music, silence, reflection, ritual, and an openness to voices from many religious traditions, FBCD seeks to create a sacred space where people can center their inner-selves to become more inter-connected with the mysteries of life, faith, and community.
FBCD’s future history is yet to be written. Will you be part of it?
