Our History

Greece Baptist Church

Before there was a town of Greece or a city of Rochester 

a small but hearty group of believers gathered together in a log school house to form what we now know as Greece Baptist Church in 1814. In 1832, land was acquired on the corner of Ridge and Long Pond Roads and they built a house of worship.


A century later, when the congregation outgrew the facility, fifteen acres of land was purchased off Long Pond Road. There, ground was broken in March of 1959, and a new sanctuary was dedicated on May 15, 1960. In 1968 beautiful memorial stained glass windows were installed, and In 1980 worship was enhanced by the installation of a 1894 Jardine & Son restored pipe organ. As we entered the 21st Century, the eight acres to the north of the church were developed into affordable housing for seniors. 


Greece Baptist Church is not a building. It is a living, breathing gathering of people who listen for God’s will and seek to follow it. It is a family: brothers and sisters who share joys and concerns; who strive and struggle; who pick each other up when they fall. The church is the body of Christ active in our community, reaching out to love and care.
