About Us (Overview)

The Stanberry First Baptist Church is a thriving community of believers located in the rolling hills of Northwest Missouri. Made up of roughly 500 members (both resident and non-resident), we have served the local community for nearly 150 years.

Our building, dedicated in 1904, recently enjoyed its 100 year celebration, but the church itself traces it's roots back to a log church building one mile south of Stanberry around the fall of 1857. For a more detailed church history, including historical photographs, click here.

This section of our site is devoted to church history and background information. It describes both where we are now (see the links below "Our Present" to the left), and how we reached this point (links below "Our History").
