About Us



From The Pastor

ronnie_375x500Farmville Baptist Church is a caring and compassionate church which, like Jesus, welcomes everyone and is committed to serving our neighbors, community, and world.

Perhaps not for everyone, but for us, being Baptist means freedom. Freedom for people to make up their own minds about God and faith, and to do it at their own pace. Freedom to use the mind as a gift of God — to ask questions, to debate, and to search for truth. We embrace the freedom to affirm equality between women and men, older and younger, rich and poor.

At Farmville Baptist Church we celebrate your freedom to be and become all that God made you to be. And, we believe Jesus makes it clear that God loves everyone — the whole world and each person in it. All people deserve our respect and love. So, our hearts and arms are open whether you are young or old, rich or poor, longtime Christians or seekers after faith. Our goal is to Worship God, Grow Together and Serve Others.

Who We Are

Farmville Baptist is a community of moderate Baptists with a long and rich history. We affirm the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 2000, the church voted to withdraw from the Southern Baptist Convention, but we are affiliated with the Baptist General Association of Virginia and the Southside Baptist Association. We support the state and national Cooperative Baptist Fellowship organizations, and we actively participate in joint ministerial ventures with other Christian churches in the Farmville area under the auspices of the Farmville Area Ministerial Association.

We hope that when you’re in the Farmville area, you’ll come be our guest! Our Sunday School classes begin at 9:45 a.m. and our morning worship begins at 10:55 a.m.
