Welcome to First Baptist Church of Murphy! 

Sharing the heart of Christ from the heart of Murphy describes the spirit of our church. We want you to feel welcome and at home when you walk through our doors. FBC Murphy has a rich heritage, serving the Murphy area for over 100 years. The beauty of our church is comforting and inviting. We are a church of all ages and stages, from young to old, married or single.
 
We are a worshiping community, growing in our faith, united in service and loving one another. Worship at FBC is not one size fits all. Whether you prefer the beauty of well-loved traditional hymns or expressive music, we pray your worship experience inspires you and lifts your spirit.
