Welcome to FBC Watertown

First Baptist Church has been serving the Watertown community for over 135 years. Chartered in 1880, and led by Reverend A. S. Orcutt, our mission is to continue Jesus’s work on Earth by spreading the Gospel to others. Through the years, the church building has undergone numerous renovations, with our current building being built in the 1970s. 

Located on the north side of Watertown, First Baptist is a welcome place for individuals and families to worship, fellowship, and grow in their Christian faith.

Currently led by Pastor Chris Gromis, we continue to be dedicated to carrying on the First Baptist tradition of service and outreach. We invite you to come visit us and see what we’re all about!

The First Baptist Church of Watertown is affiliated with American Baptist Churches of the Dakotas and is part of the North American Baptist Conference.
