FBC History Document:
“The First Baptist Story, Vol. 1”
This book was written as a historical overview of the ministry and happenings of the first 120 years of our local church. It instructs and inspires us to see the Holy Spirit’s work of provision and redemption through ordinarily extraordinary people here in Corvallis, Oregon. Give it a read!


FBC Previous Meeting Minutes:

Minutes from previous Congregational Meetings and Special Congregational Meetings can now be found on our website via this link here. If you missed a meeting and want to catch up on what was discussed you can find minutes from the last two years on this page. This page can only be accessed via this link.


Love INC:

City Serve 2020 has been cancelled. BUT Love INC is looking for volunteers to help during this season. If you would like to help in this time just click this link and sign up to be a volunteer.

Love INC is looking for someone from FBC to help connect needs that come into the Love INC office that can not readily be met by the current gap ministries through Love INC. This volunteer would be called a Church Ministry Coordinator. A CMC knows the congregation, which people are available/gifted in different ways, and is a good communicator. Preferably this would be someone who is a current Love INC volunteer or has prior experience, but it is not required. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, please reply to this email so that we can pass along your information to Love INC. They will then contact you on next steps.




“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful” Colossians 4:2

Prayer for our supported Mission Agencies:

Our church not only supports individual missionaries (and their family) but also some mission agencies that serve our community. We’d like to highlight Interfaith Caregivers and We Care.

Interfaith Caregivers is a caring community of volunteers from any faith and age whose responsibility it is to work with, serve, and assist people in order that they may maintain their independence and dignity to the highest possible degree.

We Care is an organization that pools the resources of the community to meet one-time emergency needs of families and individuals such as rental assistance, utility assistance, therapy services, food, personal care items, and more.


  • that the individuals served by these agencies would see Jesus and draw near to Him
  • That volunteers would spread the light of Jesus in each conversation they have with clients


Prayer for our Church Family:

Pray for:

  • Our Church to grow in love and unity during this season.
  • Peace in body, mind, and spirit in this time of uncertainty.
