About Us

First Baptist has deep roots in solid Bible teaching and gospel-centered ministry. The congregation desires to reset and renew after two difficult years with its previous pastor. God has blessed us with godly leadership, committed believers, wonderful paid-off facilities, a visible location, financial health and trust in God for our next chapter of Kingdom ministry in our community. Over 3000 people reside in Bad Axe, the seat of Huron County, and the need for a Bible teaching, gospel-centered, discipling church is great! You’ll also enjoy Great Lakes and outdoor activities as you live and work here.
