About FBC—Medford

The First Baptist Church of Medford is a warm, open, and inclusive multi-generational congregation.

Our worship services are formal, filled with beautiful music, and conducted according to the rich New England Protestant tradition. 

Our strength and vitality spring from our love of God and our rich diversity of people and opinions.


Our congregation began meeting in 1818, when a house church gathered in the home of Polly and Sally Blanchard on High Street in Medford.

The first recorded baptism occurred in May of 1820 in the Mystic River, and the church was legally incorporated in 1841.
