Where We Are Located

We welcome you to visit us in our quiet, yet charming community of Winters, CA,
First Baptist Church of Winters (FBCW)  is proud to pay homage to its small-town roots.  As the oldest Southern Baptist church in California — first established in 1861, FBCW has made its home on the corner of First Street since 1875, only a couple blocks from the newly restored Historic Downtown Winters. Our facilities have recently been updated and there is plenty of parking available.

What We Believe

We regard the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, as the inspired Word of God and the only perfect rule for faith, doctrine, and conduct.
The second major belief of First Baptist Church of Winters is the supreme importance of salvation through faith in Christ Jesus alone and that without Christ, all men are lost. If we truly accept the Bible as the final authority, this can be the only natural conclusion. We also believe that the Word of God teaches all Christians to share in the task of evangelism to lost mankind.
We celebrate Baptism and the Lord’s Supper as divine ordinances of the Church. At the center of all we do however, is the final authority of the Bible as the Word of God.
