  • Attend a Membership Orientation Class

Membership Orientation is a class where you can come to learn more about what we believe and the ministries we have. In this class, you will hear from our pastor he shares about First Baptist Harrison’s mission, purpose, and how you can be involved. Everyone is welcome this event, and we offer childcare for the class.  Contact the church office about date and time for the class. 

This class is a requirement for membership.  It is offered about once a month on Sunday afternoon.  The class will help you make a prayerful decision.


FBCH History

First Baptist Church of Harrison was founded on August 30, 1890. In the beginning, the church was known simply as the Harrison Baptist church, for there was no other Baptist church in town. Baptists, however, had lived and worshiped in Boone county for many years. The Crooked Creek Association (a forerunner to our current North Arkansas Baptist Association) met in 1889 to appoint those who would look over the Baptist cause in Harrison. After a revival led by evangelist and musician Bro. William Evander Penn (where converts were baptized in Crooked creek), First Baptist Church was born.


How to become a Christian -What is faith?

Hebrews 11:1: “Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” This passage concerning the function of faith in relation to the covenant of God is often used as a definition of faith.
