Who We Are ~ Our History

Our church was founded in 1814 in a log school house beside an Indian trail by a man names Moses Clark. At that time it was on the edge of the frontier, and a war with Britain was raging on neighboring Lake Ontario. These pioneers later officially incorporated as the "First Baptist Church and Society in Greece, New York," in 1832 and built a church which was to serve the congregation in its various forms for 130 years.

A modern facility - our current home - was built in 1962 only 700 feet from the original building. Throughout the years as the Town of Greece transformed from a frontier settlement to a farming community to suburban bedroom community, Greece Baptist Church has sought to lead by example, serving God by serving God's people. Presently we have approximately 300 active members of which 130 to 150 will attend every Sunday.

Our Vision
The entire nature of our greater community has been undergoing dramatic changes over the last few decades. As a result of what has been going on around us, we made a concerted effort to determine our relevance and discern what God is calling us to do. We drafted the following vision statement which hangs over our sanctuary entrance. It tells our visitors and it reminds us daily how we view our role in this world. It states;

Serving together in Christian Love
We see an open Christian community that is spiritually vital and alive with services and programs that are joyful, challenging, and inspirational. We intentionally make an effort to reach people and provide opportunities for them to discern God's will for their lives. As a caring church family, we actively work to elevate people's condition of living, both physically and spiritually.
