Bandon's 2nd Oldest Church


Founded in 1907

In August of 1907, a dedicated group of believers founded First Baptist Church in newly-incorporated Bandon-by-the-Sea.  Construction on the first church building began with a building fund of $106 and a lot of determination!  Committed to serving and worshipping God no matter the circumstances, our founding members faced many challenges...


Unfortunate Circumstances

Due to arguments over how far the original church was from town, in 1923, Bandon First Baptist Church relocated to a new location on the waterfront in the heart of modern-day "Old Town Bandon."  The Bandon fire of 1936, however, burned the church to the ground...


A Permanent Home

Within a year of the Bandon Fire, First Baptist Church had already reconstructed their new and current church building in its familiar location as "The Little White Church on the Hill."  For over 80 years at our current location, we have been meeting the spiritual needs of our members, and the spiritual and physical needs of our community and beyond!  We treasure our history and our legacy, and are committed to serving the Lord Jesus Christ by His grace for generations to come.
