First Baptist Church is located in alongside the beautiful Susquehanna River in the community of Curwensville in Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. As a body of believers, we enjoy preaching that is God-centered, teaching that is Word-focused, worship that emphasizes the holiness of our Father in heaven, and a church family which encourages one another and shares in each other's burdens. We invite you to share in these blessings, which are a natural outpouring from people that are seeking to make God's name famous in the Curwensville community. In order to equip people for this process, we have programs for children, students, and adults as well as many opportunities in which your talents can be used.
