250_building_1FBC was formed on July 7, 1907 with seventeen members, and was the first church of any denomination to be organized in Gonzales. From the first building, a structure 25 x 40 feet in size, costing $550, to the present facility on 1217 S. Burnside, First Baptist Church has grown and prospered by the richness of God’s grace.

We believe that God has preserved our Church for such a time as this. With Ascension Parish being one of the fastest growing areas in our state, our Church has great opportunity to proclaim the powerful name of Jesus Christ.
