Our History


In The Beginning...

First Baptist Church of Ridgeway was established in 1892.  

Reverend A.L. Betts of Madison, NC was the first pastor.  Mrs. Sue Garret helped raise money for the construction of the first building by selling handmade aprons.  

The original building was remodeled several times between 1892-1979.




Recent History

A new church building was built in 2003.  The beautiful stained glass window (picture) in the sanctuary was given to FBCR by First Baptist Church of Martinsville.  When FBCR moved into the new building, the stained glass window moved, too.  During the last decade. Reverend Gary Edwards and many others were instrumental in the progress at FBCR, not just of the church building, but also the ministries.
