The First Baptist Church of Westerlo has served the community and our congregation for the last 200 years. The current 135 members represent generations of families who continue to grow and serve the Lord. We have been blessed with a facility that consists of a sanctuary, offices, many classrooms, a nursery, full size gym, and an industrial kitchen.

The Town of Westerlo is a rural community located approximately 25 miles southwest of Albany, nestled in the beautiful Hilltowns. The Town offers a library, post office, bank, deli, town park with ball fields, tennis courts, playground, and covered picnic area for its 3100 residents.

The purpose of this church is to:

Lead souls to Christ

Encourage young people called of God into Christian service

Build up the spiritual life of its members through the fellowship and the studying of the scriptures

Spread the gospel to the uttermost parts of the earth

The congregation by the aid of the Holy Spirit seeks to:

Walk together in Christian love and remember each other in prayer

Strive for the advancement of this church in knowledge and holiness.

Promote its prosperity and spirituality

Sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines

Give it a sacred preeminence over all institutions of human origin

Contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all the nations

The First Baptist Church of Westerlo strives to develop our congregation and reach our community through various ministries ranging from preschool through senior care. We support approximately 40 missionaries, many ministries and the starting of two churches in neighboring communities. In keeping with the spreading of the Gospel, we have raised up and sent out numerous members for global ministry.
