About First Baptist Church

Our mission is to declare Jesus as Christ and demonstrate his love to our families, community, and world. On a typical Sunday morning, about 130 people are in attendance at First Baptist Church in Whitehall, Wisconsin. We are a multigenerational church that draws from many local communities throughout Trempealeau County.

We are affiliated with a network of other Conservative Baptist churches through CB North Central.
